4 WAYS TO CHANGE THE WORLD

By Jenna Winegeart / January 20, 2020 /

Growing up in a Christian community, giving was synonymous to tithing & tithing meant putting money in the offering plate at church. My dad always put a check in the offering. He always folded in half so you couldn’t see the amount & his hand covered almost the whole thing so you maybe didn’t even…

MY SKINCARE REGIMEN

By Jenna Winegeart / January 13, 2020 /

I remember when I was eighteen & my primary concern when it came to skincare was finding a product that took off my makeup & didn’t make me breakout. If it could be a one step process like a Neutrogena wipe, even better. I know Jennifer Garner is forty-five & there are commercials of her…

WHY THE ENNEAGRAM

By Jenna Winegeart / January 12, 2020 /

I couldn’t even tell you where I first learned about the enneagram. Was it a podcast? An Instagram post? A friend? I remember I was super into personality assessments—ever since I was young enough to appreciate a quiz that wasn’t for a grade, I’ve taken any I could get my hands on. Who wouldn’t want…

BOOK REVIEW- THE SECRETS WE KEPT by Lara Prescott

By Jenna Winegeart / November 25, 2019 /

I’m always torn when I finish a good read– on one hand, it feels like an achievement. It’s nice to see how a story ends, plus I know a new book is waiting for me– but on the other hand, I’ve spent so much time with the characters & now the story is over! It’s…

WHAT’S IN YOUR BAG?

By Jenna Winegeart / November 11, 2019 /

There was a season that lasted about four years where I honestly never carried a purse. Ever. I had the diaper bag & would just stuff any essentials of my own in one of the outside pockets– my billfold, my phone, a tube of lipstick I never remembered to use. And on the off chance…

YOU ARE. (a little love letter from me to you.)

By Jenna Winegeart / November 7, 2019 /

Who are you? I’ll tell you. You are loved. Don’t skip this first one because it seems generic & cliche. You may have been born out of biology & free will, but make no mistake that the second you gained a beating heart, God’s reflection took place within you. Before you took your first breath,…

By Jenna Winegeart / November 2, 2019 /

You know what goes really well with chilly, fall weather? Baking. Give me all the cinnamon & vanilla & ginger & nutmeg! Baking signals the start of the holidays for me– a warm, spicy aroma in the kitchen with music or a fun movie playing in the background. I’m notching a change in baking with…

By Jenna Winegeart / October 30, 2019 /

Shopping for children’s books is one of my favorite things to shop for. I started collecting them in college, & I basically look for any opportunity to buy one now– birthday present, Christmas present, travel souvenir, & any other random special occasion– it’s safe to say I’ll show up with a book! I like buying…

“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.” -Henri Nouwen This quote introduced chapter thirty, titled…
