About

Hey friends!

Here’s a some things I’d love for you to know about me.

I am Jeanette and I am married to Jesse, we have been married for 13 years. We got married when I was 18 and he was 20. We were married in a small Baptist church in Alaska where my dad was the Pastor. We were just acouple of babies back then and had no clue what was in store for us.

We started our family just a couple years later, Ezekiel who we call Zeke, is ourfirst born and then came Titus. When I turned 25 I felt the Lord very clearly said to me, ” I have more in store for you. It’s time to go.” I had no idea what that meant but I told Jesse that I think it was time to talk about leaving Alaska (something he had been aching to do for sometime). As we prepared for this life changing move we stepped in faith and landed in Central Texas. Good Bye to the Great State of Alaska and HELLO Lone Star State.

We thought that the molding and shaping was over and that our family was done with hard things, I believe the Lord chuckled at those thoughts as He placed the adoption of a little girl with no hearing into our line of vision. We began the process of bringing home our daughter in 2013 and after what seemed like a lifetime of papers, problems and red tape we welcomed Zoe into our family in 2015.

So in summary…I was basically a child bride. I was raised a Pastors kid in a super teensy town in Alaska. I love my sweet husband and all the adventures we have gone on together. I have two boys and one sassy deaf little girl. I love Jesus. I love adoption. I love summer time. I love coffee. I love Disney. I love laughing. I love friends and if you offer me a sweet glass of wine I think we’ll be friends forever!

We are very happy to call Texas home. We came from one extreme to the other, ice cold winters to summers that never end and honestly I wouldn’t have it any other way. Isn’t that life though? One extreme to another? That’s how our life seems anyways! I hope that you’ll stick around so we can become friends!
