About Me

FOLLOWER OF JESUS

I’m Jen, a wife of 19 years and mom of two—a teen boy and an almost tween girl. Born and raised in FL, I have called North Carolina home for the past 14 years, but am still a flip-flop girl at heart. Since the age of six when I first placed my hope and trust in Jesus as Lord, I have been passionate about studying, teaching, writing and speaking about the Bible, and the Hope we can all find in Jesus. (Granted when I was six, most of my teaching and preaching was done to my audience of stuffed animals!).

This blog serves as an online journal of sorts. It is where I go to process my thoughts and feelings. It is where I write about what it means to shine the light of Jesus in an ever darkening world. And it is where I record the beautiful glimpses of God’s extraordinary grace in the midst of my very ordinary life.

Latest Book: Joey

“A touching tale.” —Kirkus Reviews

At the height of his show career, this beautiful Appaloosa’s majestic stature, strength, and willingness to work made him the perfect partner. But when an injury cost Joey his show career, he moved from one owner to the next, ultimately experiencing severe abuse and neglect. A rescue group found Joey nearly dead from starvation—and blind.

Then he came to Hope Reins—a ranch dedicated to helping hurting kids who had been abused, emotionally wounded, or unwanted. By teaching these children to care for rescued animals, the Hope Reins staff were convinced they could reach kids with love and hope and show them that we are never forgotten by God.

But could the financially struggling ranch afford to take care of a blind horse that no one else wanted? Could Joey somehow learn to trust people even though the world had hurt him so badly? And what would happen—to Joey, the kids, and Hope Reins—if they failed?
A true story of friendship destined to become a classic, Joey will touch your heart and reveal the power of finding light in the darkness.

"My feels are still too big mama, I better stay in my room." Great advice for us all, right? Sometimes when your feels are too big, you might need to stay put and reflect.
