Hello, and welcome! I’m very glad to meet you.
My name is Jessie Clemence, and I’m a writer. I’m also a wife, mother, and Christian. I have stacks of books all over my house, I drive a respectable minivan, and sometimes I yell things from the back row when the preacher hits a nerve. You’ll hear a lot about the family, the books, and probably the van if you stick around this site for long.
I’ve been married to Eric for eighteen years, and we have two middle schoolers. We live in southwest Michigan: beautiful, fabulous, and sometimes really, really snowy.
I Write to Help You Find More Joy and Contentment:
I spend a lot of time thinking about joy and contentment, and how we can find those things within the reality of the lives we lead. Jesus came to bring us full and abundant life, but in this messed up, broken down, dangerous world it can be hard to believe.
And yet, I believe Jesus’s words still stand true. A lot of what you’ll read on this blog is my effort to reconcile the truth of Scripture with the reality of my own life, and I hope you’ll recognize the struggle and benefit from what God’s teaching me.
The rest of what I write is just pure nonsense, because the internet is full of enough angst and dumbness and I think it’s high time we all just chill out a little, yes?
I’m glad you’ve joined us. Let’s find a way to build a content, joyful life. We don’t have to do what the rest of the world is doing, but we don’t have to live in dissatisfaction, either. We can build the very best life possible out of the resources we already have.
