About Jenny

Hi!  I’m Jenny Slattery.  I’m so glad you stopped by.  Here’s a little about me…

I’m wife of 11 years to my husband, Mike, the most amazing man on the planet.  And for the last 8 of those years, God has been growing our wild little flock of five sparkling and spirited children, who fill my heart and life with an abundance of every emotion in the realm of human experience, but overwhelmingly with joy…

I grew up in the church, and have known about and believed in the goodness of God since I was very young.  But I came to know Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior in high school, through Young Life.  I’d love to say it’s been smooth sailing since then, but you and I both know that this side of heaven life is a bit more sloppy than that.  I like to be honest about the mess of life, marriage, and especially motherhood.  I think our honesty brings freedom, and allows us to also claim the real joy and beauty of things.  When we pretend for each other, we wrap cords of pressure and guilt and shame around this beautiful gift of being a mama.  I’m on a journey of the unwrapping that leads to delight.  Will you sit with me for a few minutes and maybe unwrap a few of your cords to grab hold of a bit more of the beauty?
