If you were born between 1961 and 1981, you're Generation X. We grew up during the greatest anti-child phase in modern history to become the world's most devoted parents. God always works it out for our good.
I'm Jennifer. I've been blogging since 1999,
and doing this Gen X blog thing since 2008.
Where have you been this whole time?
Motherhood is the greatest adventure and blessing of my life. My children, 19, 11 and 9, are a gift from the Lord. Thank you, God, for my beautiful children.
Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one's youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. (Psalm 127)

Hello, I'm Jennifer, an American wife and mother. I'm a member of the 13th generation of Americans born between 1961 and 1981. I'm Generation X. This blog is dedicated to exploring and understanding my lifelong journey as a Gen-Xer, first in the 20th Century, and now in the 21st. It's also devoted to faith and family. The site has been featured in several news outlets including the National Associated Press, Good Housekeeping and the Washington Post. I'm grateful, but still hope to publish a book someday.
Jennifer, Gen X Blogger
