Hi, I’m Jenni, wife to a wonderful husband, Dave, and mom to 7 beautiful adopted children.

I began this blog as a way to sort through my feelings of inadequacy, hopelessness, and disappointment. Life has been a continuous struggle for me to find meaning through my own suffering.

Although I believe my suffering is not exactly unique, it is personal and frames my interpretation of the world around me.

At times, I have found myself overwhelmed by my suffering to the point of feeling completely hopeless. I am convinced that my faith in God is the single lifeline sustaining me during my darkest hours.

Specifically, my experiences involve the hardships of chronic illnesses since childhood, navigating life with inter-racial adoptions, and understanding the complexities of my personal faith in Jesus. Please join me as I attempt to sort through very personal and provocative questions in life.
