Creating opportunity to develop a passionate, educated faith

Jeniffer shares a room in Nashville, TN with a dramatically overweight Lop rabbit named Key Lime Pie. Though now fully committed to her speaking ministry, her past is jam-packed with weird and wonderful adventures.

She has traveled all over the world for various reasons, whether it was studying medicine in Ethiopia, climbing the mountains of San Jose in Costa Rica, biking across Italy or selling vacuums to penguins on the glaciers of Antarctica. She's worn many hats, having dissected everything from cow's eyes and sharks in the name of science, to jumping out of a plane, served as a youth pastor, participated in the world's largest leapfrog game (making it into the Guiness Book!), line-danced her way through two country music videos, acted onstage and on-screen, waitressed, pole-vaulted, worked as a jeweler, toured as tour chaplain with Stacie Orrico, and was part of the startup staff for Michael W. Smith's Rocketown (the disenfranchised youth ministry).

Jen proudly speaks about choosing to remain a virgin and the blessings of remaining pure. Lifestyle evangelism is not only her most passionate speaking topic, but also her manner of living. It is a topic that encompasses everything the body of Christ desires to impart to young people today---to live in such a way that those around you will be eternally impacted for the kingdom of God.

She has no tattoos, but she does have a B.A. from Taylor University--a degree in Premedical Biology with a minor in Theater Performance Arts--she's always enjoyed a wide variety of life experiences. Its through these experiences that she is able to connect with and relate to today's youth and bring to them a passion and desire to live life to the fullest as a beloved child of God.

Speech Topics

Is it worth the wait. . . single forever!

As someone who was single through her 20s and not married until 34, I have a heart for this demographic. “So why aren’t you married?” was the question that haunted me. So many of my friends were moving on with careers and relationships and i felt as though my life was on pause. When was my life going to move forward? When was it my turn? Then one day i woke and realized it was my turn, my turn to live the adventure of being single and in my 20s.Now as a wife and a mother i am so grateful for those years as a single girl who had so much freedom and opportunity for ministry, and how that prepared me for the next part of my life. This is the perspective i wish to give singles in the Church.

After the honeymoon. . . a conference for young marrieds

The honeymoon is over and, life begins to be ordinary. It is in this ordinary that many young married couples begin to wonder, is this all there is? For girls especially, marriage is dreamed of for most of their lives, and when they are the first of their peer group to get married there remains a pressure to have a fairytale everyday. Yet when the dinner party ends and these young women are left with a sink full of dishes, doubt and struggle begins to set in and their husbands remain confused to why the emotional roller coaster has begun. In this conference I have the opportunity to speak biblical truths to these young marrieds about how to make the ordinary parts of marriage extraordinary, how to find the fairytale in the midst of the dirty dishes and how to serve one another in the mundane.

Identity in Christ...

“I think the struggle of knowing who you are is on-going, because we change so much as we grow and learn more about the world around us and the one who made it. However, this struggle is never more pronounced then in the teen years. For this reason knowing the promises of Christ is of vital importance. I believe that teens and young adults who have an understanding of their identity as God defines it are better equipped to make life choices that will set them up for success and protect them from the traps of Satan.

Eternal Perspective...

“So much of life is in the here and now. What’s this mean to me in this moment? What would make me happy now? Why am I important? We rarely think of next year, let alone eternity, but what if a generation of students had an eternal perspective, a perspective that caused them to focus on each of their actions with the weigh of eternity resting on the choices they make. I believe a generation with an eternal perspective could change the world!”
