Jen spent most of her growing-up years in Germany. As a teen, she moved to Africa as a Missionary kid. She attended Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. It was at Moody that she met and married her best friend, Joe. Together they have 4 children: Katherine, Elias, Madeline, and Kilian. They live in the western suburbs of Chicago, where Joe is a pastor, and Jen homeschools their children.
Jen loves to cook and read. She hates getting up early, and longs for the day when all the rooms of her house are cleaned up at the same time! She probably spends too much time reading blogs, catching up with friends and family on Facebook, and pretending she’s creative on Pinterest. In this season of life God is teaching Jen self-sacrifice, discipline, the need for more organizational skills and how to apply the gospel to everyday situations and conversations.
