My name is Jenna, and I am a born-again Christian, saved by grace alone through faith alone. I love the Lord Jesus Christ with all my heart and am so thankful for His free gift of salvation.You can read my full testimony here.
I have been married to my best friend and high school sweetheart for 11 years, After living on the Canadian prairies for most of our lives, our family recently packed up and headed north where lakes and trees are plentiful. The beauty of this new frontier has completely captured my heart, and I would happily settle here the rest of my life, Lord-willing.
We have been blessed with 3 children. Our oldest daughter was diagnosed with severe chronic benign neutropenia when she was just over a year old. She was healed from that when was 2 1/2 years old. Her story and updates regarding that journey can be found on my right side column under the tag "Updates on Little Bittles."
I enjoy cooking, watching and playing sports, playing the piano, singing, and have an appreciation for theatre, especially musical theatre. Try as I might, I just can't seem to get into fiction books and much prefer non-fiction. I am an outgoing, talkative introvert.
Why "Homemaking Pilgrim"?
With God's grace and the Holy Spirit's help, I am striving to be more like a Titus 2 and Proverbs 31 woman. Through this blog, I plan on sharing tidbits of my journey of being a woman, wife, and mother as I follow the narrow path to my home in heaven. As I travel on my "pilgrimage", instead of being conformed to this world, I need to be transformed by the "renewing of my mind" so that I can prove what is the good, acceptable, and perfect will of God.
As much as I love all things "home," the truth is this world is not my home. As a Christian, my citizenship is in heaven. I am simply a pilgrim on this earth, traveling through and trying to share the truth of Jesus Christ with those I meet along the way. There is an old country gospel song that goes like this, "This world is not my home; I'm just a-passin' through." The name of my blog, "Homemaking Pilgrim" is inspired by this concept of being in the world but not of the world, which is found throughout the Bible. For Bible passages that touch on this concept, please read the section titled Bible Verses for the Pilgrim.
Won't you join this homemaking pilgrim as I try to keep my heart and mind set on things above during my short pilgrimage on earth, for heaven is my home!
