Hi! Thanks for stopping by!
I’m Jennifer and this is my little family. We have stayed close to our roots and live in North Texas (Cowtown!!). I’m a wife, daughter, mother, and sister and I have THE BEST daughter in the world! The things that keep me sane are reading, writing, baking, going to church, coloring, and anything creative. Although my mother taught me many valuable things, such as sewing, canning, and cooking, the best example she set was being a great wife and mother.
I work full time but I’m trying desperately to achieve my goal of being a WAHM by the time my daughter starts school. I know the frustration of giving 40 hours a week of my time to an organization when I really want to be there for my daughter.
The purpose for Laughter and Curls is to help others in any way that I can by using my education in psychology, intertwined with a genuine love for people. My passion is simply forwarding the compassion and grace that has continually been shown to me by our heavenly Father. We’ll talk a lot about mental health and throw in a healthy dose of crafts and cooking too. Hopefully the articles you find here will be educational, uplifting, inspiring, and fun!
I attended Ozark Bible Institute when I was fresh out of high school. After that, I earned my B.A. in Psychology from the University of North Texas. Finally, I was accepted at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary where I received a M.A in Marriage and Family Counseling. Aside from my book learning, the School of Life has taught me so much more than any book ever could. I love psychology and learning how the mind works. We are definitely fearfully and wonderfully made!
A Little Something Sweet
For years now I have been baking and decorating cakes and cupcakes. Culinary school was never on my agenda but I can’t say that I’m self-taught either. My mother is a wonderful cook and baker and taught me all of what she knows. YouTube has been a wonderful resource and other decorators have been gracious enough to let me in on their trade secrets! So every once in a while I’ll post here about the things I create.
I am also an Independent Consultant for Perfectly Posh! I’m not a pushy salesperson but I do love all of their sparkly stuff and stand behind their philosophy as a company that provides quality, luxurious products!
I hope we can become fast friends and if there is ever anything I can do for you, just ask!
