Aloha! I’m Jenn
I’m a total word nerd from a small town, and now I hail from Honolulu. But just like any other modern mama, I get insecure and doubt my ability to be “good enough.”
What saves me from slipping into a puddle of defeat is knowing that other moms are going through the same thing. When I get overwhelmed with every-day problems, I need to be reminded of who I am and how much I’m loved.
Let me walk with you through the daily struggles of mom life.
My heart is for women who are aching to find their purpose in the midst of a busy life.
If you have ever wondered what all your effort, education, or experience is for… you are not alone.
Encouragement for Practical Living
If you hope for both the practical and spiritual direction for your family, you’ve come to the right place. Whether you’ve grown up in the faith or found it later in life, my mission for Practical Family is to help you find what you need to build a strong foundation for your family by first securing your identity in Christ.
I use the word “Practical” here and point to its definition: derived from actual use and experience; given to action rather than speculation.
This is exactly how I share information on this platform. To share for actual use and experience. Women today need real life examples and real-life honesty as we approach difficult situations. I’m not into niceties, cuteness, cliches or platitudes. I know that women need real and practical ways to move forward right now. If you’re a mom who needs someone to cut through the fluff and get to the point, I’m your girl!
I Love To Help Communicators
Wherever you are in the writing process, you are not alone. Putting words together for other people to read is a vulnerable process! I love to help authors launch their books into the world. In fact, NetGally is a service many publishing houses use to release their books to pre-readers for honest feedback. If you or someone you know is launching a book, and it falls within the genre of non-fiction, women, motherhood, parenting or family, invite me to be on your launch team!
Invite Jenn to Speak
I love to speak to groups of ladies, moms groups, classrooms, and Bible studies. Find out more here on my Speaking page.
Meet the Team
Originally from West Virginia, raised in a family of nine kids, former nanny of five, and a proud home school graduate (thanks mom!). She holds a degree in public relations and works as an actress, ballroom dancer, and podcaster. Much to her delight, Tyler (i.e. “Hawaiian Man-Candy”) agreed to marry her two years ago and they now live in Hawaii. They enjoy long naps on the beach and are trying to find a hobby that somehow combines dancing and racing cars.
Trisha is a military wife, a mother of two, and a former math teacher. During her years as a stay-at-home mom, she discovered her gift and passion for helping women improve the function of their homes. Trisha is the creator of our home care section Home on Purpose. She loves to create practical videos and blog posts to help women get organized and clutter-free.
Silke is a firefighter’s wife and mama of two busy preschoolers. She loves to sing on the worship team at church and spend time with her family in Honolulu where they live.
