Many of Jennifer’s life lessons have been learned . . . in the dark. But that didn’t come until she went blind at age 15 from a rare, degenerative eye disease called retinitis pigmentosis.
That was more than 30 years ago, and, since then, Jennifer has reached out towards women. Known for her substance, and down-to-earth style, Jennifer helps women walk with endurance, find contentment, and celebrate the ordinary. Through her signature wit, poignant story-telling and music, women are prompted to look beyond their circumstances to find unique “gifts,” in unusual packaging.
Jennifer has been a featured speaker at Women of Faith, and has teamed up with Beth Moore and others to lead conferences.
She is also an accomplished songwriter and recording artist, with six albums to her credit, and has been featured on Dr. Phil, ABC’s Good Morning America, and the Billy Graham Television Special.
She is also the founder and publisher of the popular online magazine, WomensMinistry.NET.
She lives in Missouri with her husband of 21 years, Dr. Philip Rothschild, and their two sons Clayton and Connor. She enjoys nature walks, visits to theme parks, and riding a bicycle built for two. She got a real charge singing the American national anthem for the Atlanta Braves and bungee-jumping from seven and a half stories.
In addition to collecting Depression glass and enjoying movies, she loves classical music, dark chocolate, and the smell of a hazelnut-coffee candle.
