A little about me.

Wow, I have loved reading all the bios and how we are all connected through Annie, and how each of us is dealing with transitions in our lives.

My name is Jennifer, or Jenn. I am a sleep-deprived, gloriously happy wife of almost 10 years to the newly Dr. Todd Brenneman and the mom to the cutest little girl in the world, Chloe Elizabeth.

We moved from Tallahassee last December when Todd graduated from FSU and currently we are living in Oklahoma while he searches for a teaching position. I am a RN for a home care agency and I do quality management and get to work from home. Gotta love that!! My hobbies are singing, card making, scrapbooking, and decorating cakes.

I was raised in the church and have known the Lord for a long time but in the last year I have really grown to be in love with the Lord and am striving for a deeper understanding of Him. I have been in the deep, dark pit of infertility and wept and cried out to my God. He is always faithful and always in control. His ways are infinitely better than any I could come up with. In September of 2008 the Lord blessed us with Chloe. She was born on my birthday and I was there for her birth. To me this is an example of my cup being empty and then not just filled by the Lord but filled to overflowing.

Motherhood has changed my perspective on many things. I am honored and awed at the responsibility bestowed on me to raise this little human in the best way possible, to mold her and shape her and raise her in the love of our Lord. I look at her and think, how can I teach her to have a deep love for the Lord if I don’t model it for her. It makes me want to be a better Christian so I can teach her how to be a Christian.

I am really looking forward to our time together and getting to know each of you better.
