My husband’s beard is more gray, my smile lines are deeper. Kids have baby teeth missing and “big” teeth coming in. Summer tans are fading, autumns shoes in bigger sizes are bought. Thank you, Gracious Jesus, for the sweetness you sew into every moment. Please don’t let one precious detail of this glorious season slip by unnoticed. 🌻

When it’s rainy, you just rolled out of bed, and you’re wearing weird pants you frantically threw in the cart at Costco because you thought “it’ll be fun to bring all the kids along to run errands today.” #momlifebelike #rain #family

Get out of your own little circle. While we absolutely should invest in our time together here, we must also balance it with our instruction to “go into all the world.” Remember, you have billions upon billions of years, for infinite eternity, to enjoy the company of your Christian friends; but our time on Earth is brief to plant the seeds and allow the Holy Spirit to convict hearts. It’s sowing season, let’s get to it without delay.

Daughters, Get out of your...

Hi, I'm Jenn.

It's really nice of you to come by!



I’m a wife, a mother, a believer, and blogger. I have four beautiful children; Sadie, Tom, Olivia (nicknamed Oval,) and Eli.


A few years ago, I was completely overwhelmed with motherhood and appreciated the wisdom and tips I gleaned from other women bloggers. I hope to pay it forward here.

We currently live in the Kansas City area. When I’m not with my kids, I’m helping my husband, Jim, at the office or volunteering within our kids’ extracurriculars.


The best piece of wisdom I’ve even given is to build a life that you love, that you never have to escape from, because you enjoy it so much. I’m thankful to have that and share it with you.


Here you will find encouragement, style advice, healthy & nourishing recipes, and details about my daily life. I hope it inspires you to grow with God, love the people around you well, and build a life you love.
