I’ve had a passion for words and expressed my musings on paper (and screens) most of my life. Writing has been the perfect avenue to think deeply about the stuff of life. Rookie writers begin with ‘what they know,’ and that’s how it all started.
I married a wonderful man, a virtual “utility player” on the church staff team, and we began the family journey. A few career changes, two different homes, and two children in our first four years—life was a quick run down the road. The learning curves of marriage and parenting revealed just how much of life was actually a mystery. Humility grew in me with every age or stage I knew nothing about. Married nearly two decades and a mom of two “man cubs,” I continue to explore new (and challenging) ages and stages of life.
Over 24 years on life’s adventure with Jesus, new things begged to be shared. Journaling was an opportunity for personal growth, but I felt there was more. I had to write. I had to share. But I did what I loved very differently.
I share thoughts on writing and personal topics at my blog, jenniferjHowe.com. I wrestle with deeper truths and write with a little more humility at my blog, Fragrant Grace. I don’t have all the answers; I’ve grown in my perspective over the years. I’m only certain of the One who answers the challenging questions life demands we ask.
