Hi, I’m Jen!

Welcome to Breath of His Spirit, a personal blog about living the Spirit-filled life.

My journey with the Holy Spirit stared on July 4th, 1993 in Flint, Michigan. At that time I was planning my wedding, attending college, and working full-time. I had recently moved out of my parents’ home. Life was a little stressful to say the least, and in the middle of all of this my heart was crying out for a deeper, more intimate relationship with God. While growing up I had read inspiring stories of Catholic Saints whose lives were on fire for God and they held nothing back. I had heard testimonies from people at church who were experiencing God in ways I never had. Could I have these experiences of in my life? I needed to know, so I bared my soul and from the depths of my being, cried out to Him.

On July 7th, God answered. Powerfully.

The God I had been yearning for revealed Himself with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and my heart responded with joy and dancing. The next morning I awoke speaking in tongues. Ever since that night over twenty years ago, my heart has continually sought after the deeper things of God’s own heart in prayer, Scripture, and community. Sure, I’ve had some pretty major struggles since then, but the point is I’ve gotten through them. Everyday with God is an adventure. He challenges me, encourages me, heals me. He can do the same for you.
