About this thing I call TroubleFace.
TroubleFace is the look on a persons face when some kind of terrific mischief is about to go down, already under way, or has just happened. It’s my favorite expression because it always leads to the best moments, and to the stories that my grandchildren will want to hear about their parents one day. It’s the twinkle in the eyes, the silly grin, the dimples, the scrunchy nose, the crooked smile, and the hand in the cookie jar. There is all kinds of delicious trouble to be had in our home and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I am Jenna, wife to Glenn since August 2004.
Our children are 3 sons aged 14, 12, and 9, and a daughter who is 7. Our second son was diagnosed with autism when he was 5 and I sometimes write about that, although I wouldn’t say this is an autism specific blog. We’re Canadian; I’m of French and Irish descent, while my husband’s parents immigrated to Canada from the Philippines before he was born. We love Jesus and my husband leads worship music in our church; I write about faith and issues of faith, but I do not aim to use this blog as a means for argument about them. It happens sometimes anyway, but engaging in the debate is optional.
I am currently a student working toward a Master of Divinity, which is a whole situation for a stay at home mom. It’s good, but it’s a lot. One day at a time, God gives me the grace I need for all of it.
You can find me on Facebook, where I post almost daily about the shenanigans and goings on in our lives.
