The Writer

Jenn2Welcome!  I’m so glad you have stopped by. My name is Jennifer, and on this blog I share my thoughts related to marriage, motherhood, ministry, and making a home. I have been married to my husband Steve for 18 years. Throughout our marriage Steve has served in Christian ministry as an assistant pastor. Eight little travelers have joined us along our journey, now ranging in age from 17 down to 6 months. We live with our noisy crew in an old farmhouse on top of a windy hill.

I am passionate about knowing God. I am so thankful that the way to know Him has been made possible by my Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. (Hebrews 7:25) My other passions include my husband, children, homeschooling, music, and taking vitamin D.

I enjoy porch swings, country roads, strawberry rhubarb pie, old hymns, staying home, watching football, watching basketball, hanging laundry outside, thrifting, yard sales, quilts, giraffes, bright colors, and playing the piano and harp.

I spend most of my days holding little ones, attempting to feed my hungry clan, folding laundry, washing piles of dishes with my crew, homeschooling, and saying, “Shhh, the baby’s asleep,” and “Don’t climb on the table.”

Most of all, I am grateful to God for His mercies anew every day and for His strength for the journey.
