Hi I'm Jennifer

I'm from America's Dairyland, Wisconsin. I started a virtual school, I'm a homesteader, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Much like a good book, parenthood both consumes and feeds me. To survive and thrive, I immerse myself in spirituality, family, nature, discovery. Stewardship of the knowledge and experiences life brings us matters, so, with my husband, we try to foster a conscious family environment where what we care about aligns with what we do. I've been working in education since the early 2000's, and my greatest satisfaction has come from projects that directly impact my children. I love seeing them develop into global citizens as well as creative, free spirits that aren't afraid of good work or good play. I want to foster that kind of development - not just in them, but in myself and others too. I believe in dirt under the fingernails and commitment in the soul. Music that enlivens, food that heals, and travel that awakens. I don't know what my influence is or will be, but I can't deny that individual choices make a difference. Mine make me a homesteader, an educator, a seeker, a believer, a Mom.

Why I am a Mormon

Life is rich with the gospel in it. It opens my eyes and enlivens my soul. I treasure the truth I discover and feel assurance in my spiritual focus and devotion. When my commitment weakens, life gets more complicated and I find myself stumbling. When I live the gospel, I'm on a path of eternal development. It makes me a better mom and wife, a better professional, a better friend. I feel His love, and it fills me and flows into everything I do.

How I live my faith

Living my faith means opening my heart to More. It means self-awareness that can sometimes be painful and sometimes liberating. It means knowing that the more I give, the more I have to give. In my mind, developing a relationship with Heavenly Father is enhanced by a desire to learn, explore, understand, and share. This makes my journey of faith both personal and communal. My personal development means nothing if I do not use it to the benefit of others. Likewise, sharing experiences with others means little if I do not in turn improve myself. In humility, I seek to know God's will for my life, knowing that my view is often encumbered by my pride, self-consciousness, or selfishness. I want to live my faith by nurturing that which is in my trust, giving my all to His tender care.
