Welcome to My Narrow Path! My name is Jennie!
I love animals. I grew up raising horses, sheep, rabbits, and goats! I also grew up involved in 4H. I have 3 older brothers, I am the youngest and the only girl! My brothers made me learn to toughen up as you can imagine! I grew up in a small town in northeast Ohio. I am a licensed hairstylist. I use to work in a salon but I just do my friends and family's hair at home now.
I am a stay-at-home mom to our three kiddos and soon to be home-schooling them all as well.
We also have 2 wild and lovable doggies aka our furry kids!
A few interests of mine are I like to do crafty things, sewing and knitting, cooking, working out, doing fun activities with the kids, and spending quality time with my family.
This is my husband, Ben!
Ben is a very fun loving guy. He is always making me laugh. We love to go to concerts together. A couple of our favorite artists are Lecrae and KB.
We met when we were around 14 at the local county fair where I was showing my animals. A mutual friend introduced us and we hit it off right from the start! Ben was being his joking self as he had me harassing the parking attendants with his walkie-talkie. Ever since we met God would join our paths every so often through the years. Then one day we crossed each others paths again and never separated.
Ben works at our local hospital as a surgical assistant (he helps the surgeon with/in the surgeries). Its pretty gruesome for me. I get to hear the gory details over dinner!
It hasn't always been easy as all relationships go through various struggles or trials but I thank God for blessing me with such a loving, strong, handsome, gentle, compassionate and Godly man to spend my life with. He is a great father to our little ones as well.
Ben proposed to me at Stan Hywet in Akron,Ohio on August 19th 2007. It is a beautiful estate where the founder of Goodyear once lived. Ben got down on one knee in the rain in the middle of those birch trees and honored me by asking me to be his wife.
God has blessed us countless times in our life together but one we truly treasure is our church family. We have grown quite close to a couple at church whom have taken us under wing and become amazing mentors to us. Before and after we got married they counseled, challenged, and have taught us a great deal about living a God glorifying life and relationship. I thank God for blessing my life with such encouraging God loving people like them! I'm so thankful for the many people that God has brought into our life that have helped us grow and encourage us!!
Ben and I were married on a July the 5th of 2008. We could not have asked for a more gorgeous day! It was sunny and really just amazing, more than I could have dreamed.
We were able to spent our honeymoon in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. We loved it! Neither of us had been out of the country before and it was my first time on an airplane. It was so beautiful there!
That's our story! This blog is made to be a little window into our lives through the twists, turns, ins, and outs! Welcome and I hope you stay a while and follow along on our journey.
Thank you for stopping by!!
