In an age where moving past platitudes and band-aid solutions to our most pressing family needs, Jenn speaks to both who we are today and who we want to be tomorrow. Biblically grounded theology presented in a logical method make her presentations an entertaining, educational, and exceptional resource. Her words help guide listening hearts and minds towards embracing living fully in our Fathers world.
I was truly blessed by the Titus 2 workshop. No matter how old the kids are, I can’t expect anything to be cleaned or as clean as I would like them to be. I have learned to break it down smaller into “quadrants” and that my son is a confident young man that can put his clothes away in the drawer. Every day is a learning experience for everyone. It was a true blessing to have another mothers perspective on how to get the children more involved.
