About Me

Hi! Welcome to Just Ordinary Us.

I'm so glad you've stopped in here. Why don't you have a look around while you're here? Stay a while, I'll put the kettle on and get the baking out. Who am I kidding? I'll get the chocolate out of my secret hiding place!

My name is Jess.
Wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, crafter, blogger, goofball.
Most of all, a sinner saved by grace alone, being transformed into the likeness of Him who made me.

My family is me. I am my family. They are the biggest gift I have ever received.

My man.
A strong, solid man of faith. Worthy of all respect and love.
My partner-in-crime life.

Our first born. Son One.
The baby who first made me a Mother.
By God's grace, we're trying our best to raise him up to be a man after God's own heart.

She's our darling oldest daughter.
A girly girl with a brother either side.
We want to teach Rosie about 'the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.' (1 Peter 3:4)

Our middle child and second son. A gift given to show God's faithfulness to me.
He is full of melt-your-heart smiles and laughs.
This boy is an absolute treasure, a genuine pleasure, and a perfect fit.

Our third precious son and fourth-born.
He has the biggest, brightest blue eyes and a great sense of humour.
He is an absolute delight.

A much longed-for second daughter, precious girl, and sister for Rosie.
A beauty and a delight.
Marches to the beat of her own drum.

Join me as I travel this path that is Motherhood and the process of unrelenting sanctification that it entails.

Now, tell me, do you have milk and sugar in your coffee?
