The Journey Begins

Hey friends! My name is Jennifer. Texan born and raised. I currently live in Sunnyvale with my husband of 10 years and almost 11 year old son, my favorite blessing.

I have been contemplating starting a blog for some time now. Life has taken some unexpected turns so I have time and stories to share 🙂 I am a stay at home mom for nearly 2 years now and with so much time on my hands I thought now would be the perfect time to put the pen to the page so to speak. I’m not sure if anyone would want to read what I have to say, but I think with my life experiences I may be able to encourage others or shed some light on issues.

Currently, I am deep into my Faith. I just joined an incredible non-denominational Church and my relationship with Jesus is the most important thing to me. I am striving to find my purpose in this world and further His Kingdom. I have no idea what my purpose is yet, but I am working daily to find it! I do struggle with some depression/anxiety, which definitely intensified when I lost my dad 3 years ago. I think everything we go through is for a reason, so I am starting to accept that my struggles may help others in some way. My life verses have been my major Scripture Saturation this month:

“Celebrate God all day, every day. I mean, revel in him! Make it as clear as you can to all you meet that you’re on their side, working with them and not against them. Help them see that the Master is about to arrive. He could show up any minute! Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.”   -Philippians 4:4-9

If you read these verses daily, they will truly motivate you no matter your circumstances. I can’t wait to dig deep and share some of my life with you guys! My next post will explain more about who I am and how I ended up here, but I hope this was enough to show you a bit of me and you will be interested to read more. Can’t wait for this journey!
