MY MORNING DRINK

By Jenna Winegeart / March 15, 2020 /

If you tune in to Coffee with Grandma over on Instagram stories, you’ll usually find me drinking something from a white coffee mug…but it isn’t coffee. The truth is, I enjoy drinking coffee, but it often leaves me feeling jittery. Even if you do take pride in your morning coffee habit, maybe think about giving…

ELDERBERRY SYRUP

By Jenna Winegeart / February 3, 2020 /

I live in Texas, you guys. In Texas, we have to rely on outside resources to teach our kids about the four seasons because we only experience 2 3/4 of them. We’ve got an A+ in summer. No brainer there. Spring is fine. That’s kind of the bridge of not needing heavy coats & still…

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,…

AM I ON PUNK’D? WHERE’S ASHTON?

By Jenna Winegeart / August 26, 2019 /

So the migraine at the beach happened. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s fine, but you can read about that here if you wish.) The migraine happened, & when we got back home, I made an appointment with my doctor to have some blood tests done & make sure I wasn’t scheduled…

WHY INSTAGRAM & I WERE ON A BREAK ROSS & RACHEL STYLE

By Jenna Winegeart / August 21, 2019 /

Rachel Held Evans had died. Thirty eight year old wife to her college sweetheart, mom to two babies, & author. Her books have been on my amazon list for years (planning to have a RHE month later this fall), & I’ve loved hearing her talk on podcasts. She was hospitalized in April for a bad…

SPOTIFY PLAYLISTS

By Jenna Winegeart / March 12, 2019 /

When I workout, it’s usually in the early morning, so I need some STRONG music to get my head motivated & my body moving. Maybe I was sleeping like a hibernating bear thirty minutes ago, but play a song from Hamilton, & it looks like I’m in a charismatic church service from outside my car…

PEP TALK.

By Jenna Winegeart / February 6, 2019 /

I did not want to work out today. I know there are some people on planet Earth who live for the sweat, but I am not one of them. Those people are on a special tier. They either a) don’t have kids b) work out for a living & are already in crazy good shape…

WEDDING DRESS READY

By Jenna Winegeart / January 21, 2019 /

  I loved this day over 7 years ago– but it was a bookend to 6 hard months before. I had wanted to be skinny for so long & finally had a big enough goal to buckle down. I worked out with a trainer & e-mailed him everything I ate. I also kept a journal…

KNEES & ACNE & THE COMPARISON GAME

By Jenna Winegeart / January 14, 2019 /

I had just turned eleven when we took our middle school volleyball pictures. We were in the gym, & there weren’t enough professional photographer lights to save that bad gymnasium lighting.
