Meet Jena

I fell in love with words as a little girl tucked into the aisles of our local library where my dad worked. Words had a way of moving beyond pages, influencing us to live stories worth telling.

Today I am more enthralled with words than ever. My love of words carries over into everything I do from homeschooling, writing, speaking, and even into my 18-year marriage. My husband and I have logged 16+ moves (I lose count!), experienced enough loss and love to fill a bookshelf, and have earned a few tough life lesson badges along the way. Today I’m sharing my own words with you as a place to re-think your status quo in order to live your one precious life with gusto.

As a writer, it’s my hope that you walk away inspired to live with relationship-first purpose in your own life. Our ‘Why’ is only as strong as the “Who” it’s built on.

We can lead the connected, purposeful lives we dare to pray for starting today. Let’s get honest, get real, and get joyful with our God, our people, and ourselves – you and your story are worth it!
