Hello Friends! I’m Jennifer, the face behind most of the words that you read at Contentment Questing. I’m so glad you’re here!
I started Contentment Questing in November of 2017 (On Black Friday, of all days!) Blogging was something that had been on my mind for some time, but like most things there came a breaking point. I had and still have a great life. My wonderful husband Shanon, is the love of my life. We have 2 sweet sons who are 11 and 7.
I taught high school for 3 years before deciding to become a stay at home Mom when I had my oldest son. When my youngest son started approaching kindergarten age, I started praying for some guidance about what to do in the next phase of my life. I thought I’d either go back to teaching or maybe a girl would be nice?
Funny how sometimes the Lord has plans for a person that gives exactly what you ask for but in an entirely different way. I prayed for a girl, I got a girl alright… but she was 85 years old! An elderly family member needed someone to care for her, as she was getting unable to take care of herself. As a stay at home mom, I was the only one in the family that was in a position to do that. I’m not alone, I have an incredibly supportive family and we all work together to make sure she’s taken care of, but I am the one that spends the most time with her.
