Jen Marie is a young part-time editor/writer/graphic designer studying for her personal trainer's certificate and health and wellness counseling degree. She grew up in Covenant Life Church, a part of Sovereign Grace Ministries, and relocated to Frederick, Md., with her family at the age of 18 in 2006 to be a part of a church plant in that area. She loves her crazy, amazing family; time with her godly and wonderful boyfriend; anything by Charles Spurgeon; watching the Red Sox; running, dark chocolate, flavored chapstick, and country music ... in that order. Some of her life goals include participating in (and completing!) the Ironman Triathlon in Hawaii, and working with middle-school children as a PE and health instructor.
