“I think every mom feels how Jen writes, but just doesn’t know how to say it. Page 32 of her book says EVERY thought I have had since I had kids. I am craving balance and to live in the moments that matter. I truly LOVED reading her story and hearing about her COMPOST recipe to make my life more balanced. Jen has inspired me to cook differently for my family. We have even begun having conversations about how to fuel our bodies! I’m cooking Jen’s recipes and can’t wait to dig into our family garden this summer! Thank you!!” ~Evelyn N.
“I just got done reading Jen’s book, and I LOVED IT!!! I have been trying to read up on gardening because I finally get to plant a big one this season, but I can’t STAND books that are just knowledge about vegetables. It was SO refreshing to come across The Mom’s Guide to a Nourishing Garden, as I can relate in SO many ways!! Thank you for sharing your story and inspiring me!” ~Crystal P.
