What Matters Most

My 41-years of life have been somewhat of a roller coaster. I’ve had some extreme highs and some not so fun lows. If you would’ve have asked the 24-year old Jennifer what her life would look like, it would be far from what it is and what it has been. And yet, through every experience, God has loved me, forgiven me, shown me grace and mercy beyond measure, blessed me beyond words and taught me some very valuable life lessons. As I realize that the days are getting shorter, I’m also coming to terms with just how short this thing called life is and how today is so valuable because God has put me here during this time period, “for such a time as this.” So, what has God shown me about life? Let me share: To truly live the life that … [Read more...]

God will find you…

Maybe you can relate to one or all of the statements below: I always feel like there is something more, but feeling the need to be still and wait. I continually have this compulsion that there is much more God wants me to do. I’m wondering if God has or wants more. I feel like God is leading me on a journey somewhere, I’m just not sure right now. For many of us, we have this stirring deep within us, a restlessness that seems to never go away. We feel like there is more or should be more to this life than what is out there waiting for us, but we just can’t quite pinpoint it. And if we’re honest with ourselves, we feel this deep “loss” within us. We start questioning whether or not we are in “God’s will.” Are we doing what we … [Read more...]

Run Your Race, Focus On Your Lane

I’ll admit, I’m a bit intrigued by these photos of Phelps from the 2016 Olympics. Why? Because as the saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Picture #1 sent the Internet into a frenzy. One look and you know that Phelps has his game face on. This “death glare” soon became known as #PhelpsFace. And according to Phelps, even as Chad le Clos was shadow boxing in front of him, he refused to give the man even one small glance. Phelps went on to say, "I was trying not to really look" at Chad le Clos. “He does his thing, I do my thing.” Picture #2 speaks for itself. During the 200M Butterfly, Chad le Clos was caught looking over at Phelps. And before we know it, Phelps took home the victory. Le Clos lost his focus and … [Read more...]

When you don’t feel successful

Have you ever found yourself in a position where you have helped others get to where they want to be, whether that be in life, business and/or ministry, and before you know it, they've become "successful" and you're left wondering what happened to you? Why haven't you seen some of the successes that they are seeing? Why are you being left out and forgotten? Why are you always stuck working “behind the scenes?” The other day as Luke and I were driving around town, I was thinking about the women that God has given me the opportunity to help move forward in their goals and dreams. And as I thought about these women and how far they have come and how successful they’ve become, I'll admit, I had a yucky feeling rise up in me. A feeling of, … [Read more...]
