Hello friend!!


My name is Jennifer and I am so very glad you’re here!

I would love to share with you a little bit about me…I was born and raised in a very small town, on the back country roads of Ohio.  Honestly, it’s so small that people tease… “If you blink when you’re driving there, you just might miss it!”  By the time I was out of college, I had made the big decision to move. I moved right outside of Pittsburgh, PA and it has had my heart ever since.

I met my husband when I turned 16, he was 17…and the rest is history.  It will be 19 years this summer, that we’ve been married… and I am more in love with him now than ever before.  We have four simply amazing kiddos, that I adore…they teach me more and more about Jesus every single day.


I love almost all things outdoors; lakes, mature trees, and hills are three things I’ve decided I NEED in my life!  I have tried to live without those things… I really have, but my heart was always drawn back. Back to the north where the winters are cold, fall is colorfully breath-taking, spring is the sweetest smell ever and summer days are far too short.

And now, I find myself here… living on the back country roads of PA, and learning not to strive. If I’m honest, it’s been a lesson I’ve been learning for YEARS.  Truly.

Learning who I am.

Learning who God created me to be.

And now, I’m writing.  Writing about God, the everyday things, family…with everything focused on Him… not striving for anything, but learning to just be, in His Presence.

And that’s it…my life in a few paragraphs! If you’re ever out this way, my front door is always open, literally.  [My kids think they live in a barn, lol.]  You’ll find me, my family, our dog, some crazy roaming chickens [that lay great tasting eggs by the way!] and lots of love here…all of us, learning to “strive no more”…

In Christ alone,
