_MG_9780zaknjess001_1000I’m Jess. I’m a nerd. I’m married to my best friend and love of my life, Zakary Alan, who is also a nerd. We enjoy not being cool together. We have a jungle cat named Hollywood, who fits her name quite well. I am a hopeless action film junkie. I like all the coffee in the world and enjoy a vast array of music. If I could, I’d spend my entire day reading in the sun and eating guacamole. Thanks to my mother, I’m a natural hugger and an incredibly skilled crier. I wear my heart on my sleeve, and it’s gotten me into some trouble. A few things I don’t think I’ll ever understand in this life: country music, the vegan, and math. I love to serve others and have a heart for people. I’m a Christian, and I love the Lord. Not the kind of Christian who thinks she’s better, smarter, or has it all together.. the kind who knows she’s messed up, broken, and in need of the saving grace and forgiveness of Jesus Christ everyday.. the kind of Christian who’s not going to try and fool you with a display of good deeds or great words to make you think I’m some kind of somebody or good person. There’s only One who is good, and in a world that’s falling apart and has no answers, He’s the One I cling to and live for in good times and disasters.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs‬ ‭3:5-6
