I’m Jen! I live in a little cozy house on the prairie with my farmer hubby and our two kiddoes. We have a few dogs and some chickens. Most days our house is a mess and I drink way too much coffee. I like to dabble in photography and gardening. And I could spend hours a day reading without feeling the slightest bit of remorse. Most importantly, I love Jesus. With my whole being.
We homeschool, which means you will usually find our table covered with “treasures” like rocks, dead bugs, and mushrooms brought inside by curious children for further analysis. We live an hour from the nearest Wal-Mart (which I guess technically would put us in the middle of nowhere), so we enjoy a slower paced life…most of the time.
