About

Hi, I’m Jen, a work in progress.

I grew up as an MK (missionary kid), partially here in the states and partially in our half-island home of Papua New Guinea.  Today I find myself in some of the most flat country ever – the Midwest!  I live here in Indiana with my pastor husband and our four amazing and often challenging children, including a set of fraternal twins.

Despite my good life, I find myself often frustrated by failure and plagued by perfectionism.

I’m just not as “good” as I’d like to be. How about you, friend?

So, I write about that struggle to find my way here at Being Confident of This, which  is centered around my life verse:

“[B]eing confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Phil. 1:6 (NIV)

Being Confident of This button, grace for the work-in-progress woman, knowing your identity in Christ and living from it

I can be a woman who is confident in the knowledge that God’s still working on her and that He promises to carry that work to completion.  I don’t have to fear when I’m faced with failure or flaws; instead I can rest in His unfailing grace.

Theses promises are for you, too, friend, if you know and trust in Jesus as your Savior.

Let’s journey together in becoming the women our loving Father created us to be, rather than the perfect myth-of-a-woman we sometimes strive to be.

Let’s loosen perfectionism’s grip as we trust the Lord to mold us.

Let’s be confident in the work in progress

Will you join me?
