The Real Deal
Jen’s journey to knowing the one true God began when she was in her late thirties. Although she grew up in church, she never truly knew God. She never understood that God wanted a relationship with her and that He could love her with an unconditional, unceasing, unrelenting love that no one else ever could. Seeking the Lord has become a deep desire in her heart, and her commitment to help other women find ways to connect more fully with God is her passion. She knows that, without a doubt, God has called her to reach out to other women to share the hope that she has found in Him.
What She Brings to Your Event
Jen’s love for Jesus is contagious. Her messages bring an honest, genuine transparency of the way God has transformed her life from a place of busy, chaotic, self-centered happiness to a place of peace, contentment, and service to Him. Her love for engaging in new relationships is obvious as she connects with other women with compassion, humor, and real-life stories. Finding new and creative ways to apply Scripture to everyday life is an encouragement to women of all walks of life.
How About Experience?
With over ten years of experience in women’s ministry roles, Jen has trained new leaders and mentored women in their pursuit of Jesus Christ. She graduated from Southern Illinois University where she studied Psychology and Speech Communications and is currently enrolled in an independent study course at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. Jen co-founded the NFP My Sister and Me Ministries and has served as the Director of Women’s Ministry since 2011 at Grace Bible Church in Minooka, Illinois. Her experience and dedication in leading and helping women to understand Scripture and learn how to live in the freedom of Christ Jesus is at the forefront of her teachings.
Jen and her husband Brent have been married since 1989 and treasure raising their adult daughters, Emily and Bethany. She enjoys spending time with her family, crafting, baking, exercising, going to dinner or movies with friends and playing with her perfect dog, Murphy.
