Welcome to Consider Yourself Hugged: A Place for Women! Click here to listen to Episode 73.
Today we go deeper with our series about Women & Spirituality in 2021 with our fabulous guest, Jennifer Walden. A little bit about Jennifer:
With degrees in History, Psychology, and Education, Jenn Walden has served in various educational fields for more than twenty years. Her teaching and administrative roles in public, private, and Christian education have afforded her the unique opportunity to work with a wide range of people from varied economic, religious, and social circumstances.
Jenn has been nationally recognized for her design and implementation of programs serving at-risk youth, and currently works with underserved and at-risk populations through volunteering and partnering with local and national non-profit organizations. Her most recent projects specifically focus on influencing and empowering women. Her blog, Jenn’s Closet, is dedicated to inspiring spiritual wholeness in women and transparent communities of faith.
Pouring herself into a teaching career and church ministry brought Jenn a great deal of fulfillment but, meeting her husband Kirk--when she was 33--was an answer to prayer.
As an ovarian cancer survivor, Jenn did not think it was in the cards to have children. Yet, marrying a single dad immediately blessed her with three children, then Jenn and Kirk were surprised by two miracle babies who are now growing into young men.
Today, Jenn enjoys homeschooling their two youngest, while also supporting Kirk as he speaks and writes for non-profit ministries in the U.S. and throughout the world.
Jenn and her husband Kirk live in the suburbs of Nashville, TN with their two youngest children, a cat (“Meatloaf”) and a dog (“Aubie”).
