Jen

Jennifer Scheuermann

WRITER

While living out her vocations of marriage, motherhood, and health care provider, Jen can often be found on the sidelines of a ball game, searching for shade while cheering for her sons. She firmly believes any household chore can be enjoyable with a podcast playing, but as a recovering perfectionist, she tries not do them too often. 

After finding herself on an Ignatian retreat that she hadn't realized would be silent, she encountered Jesus personally, and her world has not been the same since. An early riser, she sits with Jesus while it’s still dark and blogs about the things He reveals to her at earlyAMcoffeewithJesus.com. She considers her Instagram squares her personal stones of remembrance, and you can follow her daily faith journey at @earlyAMcoffeewithJesus.
