You can call me Jenn or Jennifer – NOT Jenny. (Blame Forrest Gump.) I live with my husband and sons in the wet wonderland of the Pacific Northwest.
After long seasons of struggle, God brought to life my dream of being a write-from-home mom. In between packing lunches and juggling carpool schedules, I freelance for several Christian websites and publications. I also serve as content director for Waiting in Hope Ministries, a national organization that supports women and couples who are waiting for children. I’m passionate about adoption, a holistic pro-life ethic, and equipping women to know Christ through his Word.
When I’m not sipping a chai at the computer, you can find me reading a good fantasy novel, exploring parks with my family, and cheering for the Seattle Seahawks.
Thanks for taking time to get to know me. I pray that my words will help you see the goodness of God even in the face defeat.
Becoming a mother took more tears than I could have imagined. My husband and I wrestled with infertility for several years, enduring invasive surgeries, costly treatments, and a failed IVF cycle.
By his kindness, God redeemed our journey through the wasteland. He brought us our first son through a “stork drop” adoption and our second son through a surprise pregnancy. And his wonders never cease. After 5 years of secondary infertility, we’re expecting our third son, the most welcome surprise of 2020.
During my waiting season, God stirred me to start a support group for women facing infertility and infant loss. I thank him for giving me the privilege to shepherd hurting women and lead local Bible studies.
In addition to serving more than a decade in ministry, I have 15-plus years of freelance writing and editing experience. I hold a BA in Journalism from Whitworth University and am a member of hope*writers. My work appears at various Christian publications, including these websites.

“Your words were found, and I ate them, and your words became to me a joy and the delight of my heart, for I am called by your name, O LORD, God of hosts”
~ Jeremiah 15:16.
I write to light hope found in Christ alone as revealed through his Word and in the reality of our lives. To stay updated on my writing, ministry work, and book recommendations, sign up for my newsletter.
