About

I’m Jennifer. I’m married with 3 children, whom I teach at home. I love Jesus Christ and am passionate about prayer. I enjoy sharing what the Lord is teaching me and that’s what most of my posts are about. But I also enjoy making people laugh, and I hope SOME of my posts accomplish that.

A defining moment happened to me in March of 2011, when my youngest brother (I have 2 brothers, both younger than me) committed suicide. It rocked my world and left me angry, heartbroken, and confused. Through the journey of grief, though, I’ve learned more about God’s grace, faithfulness, and unconditional love. I am SO grateful that I know my brother also knew Jesus as his Savior, and so one day I will see him again. I want my brother’s death to not have been in vain, and so I want to bring awareness to the epidemic of suicide, the reality of spiritual warfare, and the truth of the Gospel.

To sum up, I love my life and the blessings God has poured out on me, and I am thankful that He uses the heartaches to draw me closer to Him. I long for Heaven and to see Jesus’ face, to hear His voice, to see the nail scars, and to feel His arms wrapped around me; and I long to see my brother, to hear his voice, and to see his big smile. But while the Lord has me here on Earth, I want to live in the shadow of the Cross, and to magnify the name of Jesus. I hope my blog will be a tool that accomplishes that.

  1. Hi Jennifer – I found your blog via Rebecca Carney’s site and wanted to say hello. I, too, have lost a brother (roughly three years ago). While there is no pleasure in meeting others in a similar boat, there is a sense of camaraderie. I’ll be praying for your family as often as you come to mind.

    • Thank you, Angela, and thanks for visiting. I’m sorry we have to have that in common. I saw on your blog that Nathan died 3 years ago last month. I’m so sorry for your loss. I will pray for you, too, as the Lord brings you to mind. God bless.

Please share your thoughts!
