Hi, I’m Jennifer.
Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the Internet. This blog is my little project that has become so much more. I grew up knowing two things, I wanted to be a mom and I was born to write! Oh, and one really big thing, I am loved and created by my Almighty Savior!
My father had always wanted me to be a journalist. I wrote for the school newspaper in high school and college, trying to convince myself I liked it, but failed miserably.
However, I have always enjoyed writing and researching. My mom always said that I had a “flair” for writing and language.
I kept telling people what I wanted to do was spend my days researching on the Internet and writing. Everyone told me I could never get paid for that, and I believed them.
I married my high school sweetheart and we started our own crazy adventure. Once my oldest was born, I knew I wanted to just be home and be mom. I tried to find ways to be home with my children as much as possible, working night, taking dead-end, dreadfully boring work from home jobs.
I was in need of an outlet, a place to let my creative juices flow. For a few years I toyed with the idea of blogging but never took the leap. Then my friend, Jessica at Shower of Roses, encouraged me to start my own blog.
So here I am, writing a blog. I don’t think this is what either of my parents had in mind but I hope that they are smiling on this little pet project from Heaven.
My husband and I are raising our four miraculous children, with three more tiny saints to pray for us in Heaven. There is never a dull moment and never a deficit of joy.
We wanted our children to have the best education possible, so as two former public school techers, we chose to homeschool and have been homeschooling for nine years. We use an eclectic approach with classical influences.
Using my passion for research and my education background, I have helped countless people discover the best homeschooling plan for their families. Aurelius Cabrini is my mission to bring that gift to many more families out there in the world that just need a little support and a guiding hand.
I have a deep passion for orphans and suffering children, as well as for our Church, my country, and our liberty.
St Catherine of Siena said, “Be who you were meant to be and you will set the world afire!”
This is me setting the world afire. So happy to have you be a part of it!
