Snap Snap Snaps and Singleness.

So you’re twenty-something, [or thirty-something] and single. And as much fun as Taylor Swift’s song, “22” makes it sound, you are just NOT happy. Most of your friends are either married, engaged, or seriously dating the guy they’re expecting a ring from any day now. 

You’ve faced that bittersweet phone call time and time again, where the high-pitched voice of your bff excitedly tells you that in T-a year or less, she’ll have a new best friend, and one that’s a boy.

Whole[ish] 30.

30 days ago, I set out to successfully complete a Whole30. The first week I did it exactly by the book, and as per usual, I was “hangry,” grumpy and had constant headaches. I didn’t realize how bad it was until Stuart said, “if you’re going to be this grouchy, maybe we shouldn’t do this anymore.” Ehhh sorry husband. 

That mixed with a few other “reality collides with the best intentions,” and I decided maybe I needed to tweak my Whole30 a little bit.

In Real Life // Part 2.

In Real Life Part 2

I recently read an article with a tag line, “what the church can learn from Fallon.” (I think I’ve said this before, but I LOVE Jimmy Fallon. I constantly tell Stuart that I want to be Jimmy’s BFF. I’m also secretly jealous of his bestie friendship with Drew Barrymore, who I also love, and wish we could all just be friends and hang out.) Anyway…the article was about how in the past, much of late night entertainment has been full of cynicism, criticism and bitterness.

In Real Life.

There’s been a lot of controversial hot topics in the media recently. A lot of differing opinions, and most of these topics have taken social media by storm.

There have been a few times I’ve wanted to sit down and type out my frustration, my disappointment, my anger and post it on my blog for the world to see. Maybe if more people read the truth, saw how their wrongs were affecting others (and themselves!), maybe then their eyes would be opened and they’d miraculously change their minds!!

“That” Girl.

I was so that girl. That girl who was CONVINCED I would never get married and would instead die alone. With 52 cats. And I HATE cats.

I didn’t really date in high school…or college…and only a little bit after college. I don’t know why, the right guy, or the could-be-the-right-guy just never came around. I had crushes, and I think guys had crushes on me, it just never ended up being something.

Introducing Me.

Introducing Me

I’m Jenn. In the past few years I have moved from Philadelphia to Indianapolis to Columbus. 3 states in 3 years. It was definitely not what I planned, but it’s been a really fun adventure! Which is exactly what I prayed for in my life years and years ago. Hopefully the adventure never ends!

I’m on staff with Cru (also known as “Campus Crusade for Christ.”) and have worked with high school students for the past 2 years, helping them learn how they can have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and share that relationship with their friends.
