I’m a mom, an advocate, and a writer.
My name is Jennifer Senne, an advocate for anything and everything beautiful in life. I love God, fashion, art, music, reading, and writing. I love to take photos of people, animals, things, places; anything that my eyes recognizes as beauty. I love animals, like my two rescued fur-babies prince Kula and my dog Rondo who once lived behind tall garbage bins and now sleeps soundly on my bed every night.
Before I focused on writing, I was an entrepreneur, personal growth, parent, and family coach. I helped children, parents, and families find ways to grow together and as individuals. As a motivational speaker, I spoke to adults and children in schools about leadership character traits, positive self – image, love for animals, among other topics I think may help them grow personally.
In 2014 I was diagnosed with a rare chronic illness called Dystonia. Like many others out there, I also suffer from the debilitating effects of migraine. I openly speak about my chronic illness journey with others hoping to spread awareness to people who may not understand the conditions and the days we go through as chronic illness warriors. We all fight our battles differently, and some lose hope. I desire to be a light to other warriors out there and their friends and family, defying the stigma that surrounds our condition. We battle an invisible illness, and yes, our days may be challenging and unpredictable, but we fight through it the best way we know-how. Instead of letting the situation bring us down or defeat us, we do what we can, when we can, and cherish the good moments we have no matter how short-lived they may be. I lived by the mantra, “It’s ok not to be ok,” after all, warriors need rest too!
One of my mentors taught me to jump and build my wings on the way down; paraphrasing John Maxwell’s statement. I wrote a faith-based Christmas book called “Believe,” Which was my first book published in 2017 under a Christian Publisher. In 2019 I decided to change the cover and republished it with its new and better look.
Getting the hang of self-publishing, I published another book in 2019. I grew up not believing in myself. Self-limiting thoughts and beliefs hindered me from accomplishing many things in life. My experiences inspired me to write “Good Morning, Mirror!” My desire is to reach children and teach them the power of positive self-talk through my book.
When I am inspired, I write blogs on different topics. I write about faith, struggles, fashion, pets, and other things that inspire me. You can find some of these stories on my blog page, but please don’t be too harsh to judge my writings; I’m still growing as a writer.
Believe – A boy, a dream, an angel, and an old man who doesn’t believe in Christmas = a recipe for God to work.
Good Morning, Mirror! – A story about the importance of positive self-talk.
