Come on in, sit down on the couch, grab a soft blanket, sip on a cup of tea, and stay awhile!
I’m Cortney Jenkins, a lover of Jesus who desires to equip women to live intentional and missional lives. I created this blog to share experiences and resources to encourage you to offer up your home and life as a tool to be used by God for His glory. I also want to help equip you in your personal walk with the Lord and in the ministries He has entrusted you with. It is my life’s aim to reach people far from God and develop reproducing disciples, and I want to share with you practical tools for you to do the same. I want to invest in my family, create a home that provides rest and refuge for my people, and then use our home as a launching ground to reach the world for Jesus. My prayer is that all who enter our home be blessed and all those who leave, be a blessing.
I’m the wife of Jeremy, who is a student pastor with a huge heart for the nations. I’m the Mama of Savannah, a 3 year old with a fascination of the globe, the world, and animals. I’m just a “good Christian girl” from a small southern town in North Carolina who grew up in church, attended Liberty University, got a degree in Women’s Ministry, moved back to Small Town Friendly, and then somehow became a Special Education teacher. This blog is my story of how God is changing my heart, shifting my focus, and igniting a passion in me to fulfill the Great Commission in my community and abroad- beginning with ministry that happens right within the walls of our home.
I’m so passionate about the home and the ministry that can happen there. It is my hope that as you read the words on these pages, interact within our community, and use the resources provided here, that you begin to see your home in a new light and that it stirs within you a love for your home, the people who fill it, and for your neighbors and community. I want to help you see your living room as a place for the communion of saints and sinners, your table as a place for souls to be fed, and your home as a shelter to the weary, a place of community, authenticity, and vulnerability.
Within these posts and pages, I pray you find words to help equip you for your journey of growing closer to the Lord through sanctification and ideas to help you in the ministries God has entrusted you with.
I hope you come here again and again to join in this community of women, and each time leave encouraged to really see and respond to those within and beyond the walls of home – near and afar. That you will feel encouraged and enabled to live missionally and share the love of Jesus within your circles of influence so that others might experience His amazing grace.
