Jennifer, co-founder of Gather Ministries, and author of Loop and Breathing Eden, grew up in the middle of an almond orchard in Northern California. A former high school English teacher, she loves to write . . . but she especially loves to encourage people to seek and live out the truth of their story, their identity in Christ. After leading and teaching women’s ministry groups at her home church for ten years, Jennifer wanted to create a smaller, more intimate group—a safe place for women to gather, be vulnerable, and encourage each other in the sharing and living out their life with Christ. You can read more about the group, called My Girls, here.
Her heart to encourage God’s girls, and her love for writing and story-telling, prompted the creation of her blog. The creations of both Loop and Breathing Eden were stirred by Jennifer’s desire for women to listen to God’s voice, to be reminded of the truth of who they are. Both books have a 5-star rating, and Loop immediately became a #1 Amazon ‘Hot New Release’ in ‘Women’s Christian Issues.’
Jennifer earned a teaching credential from UC Berkeley and a MA degree in English Education from Columbia, Teacher’s College, after graduating with a BA in English, at UCLA. She has been married to Justin for twenty years now, and they have three children. Justin is her buddy, her best friend, her partner, the one who shares her heart for adventure and seeking to live out the truth of God’s voice, gathered up in the community He brings.
