Meet Jessica

I am a child of the Most High King.  Though I’m ragged and filthy, and often blind, He has taken me in and made me His own.  My feeble attempts to show my love are as nothing, and I long to know how to know Him.  As a “recovering Pharisee”, His grace continually astounds me and I learn more each day how precious the promise that His mercies are new each morning and great is His faithfulness.  Hallelujah.

I married my beloved, Aaron, in March of 2009 and then I began to live my lifelong dream of being the wife of an amazing man who loves Jesus.  In December 2009, arriving four weeks early, we welcomed our son, Cedar, and I started living my dream of being a mama.  Our first  daughter, Genoa, was born in April 2011, and our second daughter, Avila, in May 2013. Our second son, Caedmon, was born in February 2016. And little Saoirse was born in June 2018. God is so good to me.

I spend my days learning how best to love my husband and little ones, homeschooling from a Charlotte Mason approach, keeping my 130-year-old house in the mountains of Colorado, and cooking with lots of garlic and no recipes (but lots of cookbooks!).  I’m a regular writer for the Wild + Free content bundles. My spare moments find me reading or enjoying conversations with friends.  Comfort foods are dark chocolate, natural potato chips, and good organic tea with a bit of honey and a spot of milk.  Other loves include green places and the ocean, gardening, traveling, sea mist in my hair and face, dancing in the rain, walking barefoot through dew-wet grass and trying to live in elegant simplicity — with a good bit of crunchiness thrown in.
