Well it is now 2020! It is the time of year when everyone is posting their resolutions and goals, so I decided I would add mine to the mix. 2020 is the year that I choose to be kind to myself, but 2020 is also the year that I choose to thrive rather than survive.
In the time that I have been blogging I have not properly introduced myself, so that is exactly what this post is. It’s time to get close and personal with me! My name is Jennifer Brock. I am a mother of one amazing little boy. My husband, Joe, and I started dating in April 2014, got engaged November 2014, and on January 31, 2015 we married! Soon after we married I became pregnant with our little monkey, Joshua Alexander Brock. While I was pregnant I attended my dream school, Christ For The Nations Institute, with hopes of being able to major in Missions ministry, graduate, and be sent to India to work in Human Trafficking Safe Houses with the rescued women.
After fighting through school with morning sickness my husband and I had a change of plans. I would not be able to continue to attend school like I had planned after Joshua was born, so we moved back to my husband’s home town.
Most of my life I have battled with some sort of mental illness. One of the greatest helps through my battles has been knowing that I am not alone. I have managed to get through most of it with the help of God, my friends and family, and writing. Writing has been a passion of mine ever since I was little. I remember writing children’s stories instead of working on my school work during my Jr. High and High School years.
My mom is my hero and my best friend. She raised my brother and I to be the people we are today. She always relied on God even in the tough times and we always managed to make it out alive, I always managed to make it out alive because of her.
My husband and I are HUGE nerds. Harry Potter, Star Wars, Marvel, you name it we are probably a part of the fandom associated with it!!! I may not be considered much of a gamer at all but I do enjoy watching ESports as well as gameplays and streams! Most of our family activities include bonding over our favorite Competitive Call Of Duty team, Optic Gaming.
I love Jesus, coffee, helping others, anything Fandom related, and I am a makeup addict! I’m a 19 year old mom what else would you expect? What else do you want to know about me? Comment below with a question (goofy or personal) and I will answer it as soon as I can!!!!
