Hi Jennifer, first, tell us a little about yourself.

Oh, boy. This is a loaded question. So, do you want to know the strange, the hilarious, the boring and mundane …

I’m a mama and wife. I feel like those are my favorite realities. My daughter just got married this spring, and I’ve really enjoyed watching her and her husband grow. I feel like I’ve now got two kiddos to love on, and my heart is full! I write, serve in various capacities, drink way too much coffee (or perhaps I should say, heavily flavored almond milk seasoned with coffee), have a severe ice cream addiction, and love to read almost any genre that exists. And I love to podcast.

Were you an avid reader as a child? If so, what did you read?

I had an obsession with Shakespeare for a while. I’m not sure why, except perhaps due to an honors English teac…

Clare shares a yummy recipe and one of her favorite Bible verses.


To Nourish Our Sweet Tooth
Fruit Cake 
 6 ounces butter 6 ounces sugar 8 ounces self-raising flour 2 eggs 4 tablespoons milk
Cream butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs. Fold in the flour and milk. Pour into a lined tin Bake Gas 6/200C for 10 minutes, then Gas 3/160C for 1½ hours.
Use dried fruit of your choice.
This was originally Nanna’s fruit cake recipe. She passed it onto Mum, who gave it to me and now my daughters make it as well. We’d go visit Nanna and Grandad on a Saturday afternoon and she’d always be baking. Probably to avoid the TV sport in the other room :-)
Yum!
To Soothe Our Souls
Bible Verse – 1 Peter 5:7
Cast all your cares upon Him, for He careth for you.
