I’m laughing at how long it’s been since I’ve posted a note. Makes perfect sense to me! Had a baby in Feb 2011; increased my focus on marriage, motherhood, and ministry; wrote a book proposal for Men, Mirrors, and Magazines; and continued speaking around the country. I guess blogging, facebooking, and tweeting were way down on the list!
But in the past year, a bright shining baby boy entered our home just when we needed something to smile about; my marriage and family went center stage where they have always belonged; and the ministry touched more and more lives. I may not have facebooked much. I may not have tweeted or blogged. But I poured my heart into the face-to-face.
Face-to-face: that’s where the real change happens, and that’s where it ends, when we go face-to-face with our God.
I’m back to blogging. The topic? What God is teaching me now … on marriage … on motherhood … and on ministry.
To be continued!
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
At the age of 18, I was recovering from an eating disorder, cutting, and suicide when I read Jennifer Strickland’s book Girl Perfect and it changed my life. At the age of 33, as I travel the world reaching youth for the gospel, this is the only book I recommend to girls who are struggling. The Lord has truly anointed Jennifer’s words through her story, not only to address the struggles of today’s generation of girls, but also to walk them through the healing necessary for victory.
Jennifer is a captivating speaker. She keeps the listener hanging in wonder of what’s coming next! Her presentation is not only absorbing, it reveals the truth of God’s power to heal a wounded spirit.

“The ‘P’ word [perfection] may be the heaviest burden women bear. All the misguided things we do to attain it can keep us away from what we need most – the unconditional love of God the Father. The Girl Perfect Study Guide gives you a map to the wholeness you were created for.”
Nancy Ortberg, author and former teaching pastor at Willow Creek Community Church
“The Girl Perfect Study Guide shatters the lies girls and women believe and points to the ultimate truth, which really does set us free. I am confident that this study will help thousands discover a beauty, purpose, and worth that truly lasts. Thank you Jen for exposing the ‘perfect life’ and inviting girls to experience God’s ‘perfect love.'”

One of the best testaments to what Jennifer is doing for the young girls and women of today is a comment from my eleven-year-old granddaughter: “Grammy, I want to read this book and hear her again. She’s good and I learned a lot.” This is exactly what I experienced from a grown-up perspective when I was introduced to Jennifer Strickland’s amazing story. Read it and see if you don’t get the real story from an icon model and a powerful speaker of truth.”
