As a Mennonite author and writer living in the slums of Elkhart, my writing seeks to exalt God’s hand in the broken and mundane, inspiring hope and compassion.
About My Father’s Business – Luke 16:10
This blog is an outlet for my feelings, thoughts, ponderings…as I learn the truth that the daily, the normal, the mundane, the usual, is in fact, what constitutes being “about my Father’s business”! Join me?
Mark’s Views, Perhaps – a look at life from behind my eyeballs
Hearing God’s voice, cultivating a deep relationship with Christ, and bringing His presence to people around me are my passions. I also homeschool our four energetic children, glimpse God’s love through my deafness and, as the only Mennonites in town, regularly fellowship with Christians from other denominations.
People have said that I put into words what they feel. People often have unspoken questions they wrestle with. Scary questions. A vibrant life of love for God and others begins by having risky conversations putting words to these questions. That’s what we do at this blog.

Focus on Bible and Church from an Anabaptist perspective and concern for people to live in joyful, healthy discipleship to Jesus Christ.
We are all born to know Him. Sometimes life gets in the way of seeing the big picture… but all it takes is a moment of choosing to die … again, pressing on toward knowing our King.
What can you expect here? I blog about life as I see it right now – the challenges, the laughter, the lessons, the adventures, the photos. Join me on the journey, share your experiences with me, and maybe we’ll find in each other a kindred spirit.
Thoughts about life, the pursuit of a wild, adventurous God, journeying through depression, what it means to follow Jesus, wrestling through Anabaptist heritage and convictions, church, all that good stuff. Not many answers, just thoughts, ramblings, and my own story.
Come into the Fields – Song of Solomon 7:11
Come Into the Fields is an invitation to come apart, be still, and to ask questions that will take us into a deeper knowledge of God and the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Will you come into the fields?

THIS IS where imagination and reality blend, where poetry, stories, and journal entries mingle, where my heart throbs and God is sought.

JennStory – Because we’re all stories, in the end.
I hope at the end of my life I’ll be allowed to read my story, to look back and understand my part in the Author’s storyline. Until then, I do what I can: I watch for little stories in my days; I record; I look for meaning, and I love.
Through poetry and stories, I explore the personality behind the universe. Theological and philosophical issues come up from time to time as well.
I share weekly video blogs (vlogs) about what life as a young Mennonite mom looks like. I hope to break down misconceptions, offer inspiration, and share the love and hope of Jesus through every post.
conservative Anabaptist perspectives
This blog is about my faith, my family, and my world. Come pull up a chair and stay a while.
Jesus and his teachings are the final authority on the best way to live. If Christians follow the teachings of Jesus, they will not engage in violence against their enemies. I write this blog because I would like to better understand both sides of the issue of Christian violence.

Realizing one version of “the good life,” one day at a time. I believe, like James wrote, that “every Good & Perfect thing is from the Father above”. So I’m filling my little corner of the internet with record of the good things He’s showing + giving me.
During the Protestant Reformation, the Anabaptists were considered radicals for taking Scripture –specifically Jesus’ teachings– literally. While most of the Protestant church fought over their theological differences and even took up arms, the Anabaptists stood in persistent, confrontational peace. My blog’s intent is to do the same.
