Hey there!! I’m Jen
I am the founder of Simple Steps By Jen. I love helping moms to walk in their true identity and purpose. I had a traumatic past and mother wounds almost limited my potential to truly thrive in my God-given calling until God healed and restored me. Now, he has given me the grace to nurture moms and awaken her to live out the dream of authenticity and to be fully present with her children.
How it all started
God had a plan for me all along
After graduating with my bachelor’s degree, I planned to go to graduate school to specialize in speech therapy. I thought that I wanted to help adult’s with speech and language problems through rehabilitative efforts. But during that time, I found a job working as an Autism/ ABA Tutor but for children.
I never imagined that I would work with children. In fact I did not like it at first because some of my client’s behaviors were difficult to manage. With God’s help, I was able to understand the science of behavior and I began to really enjoy working with children.
I enjoyed working with parents…
I enjoyed discussing with parents some behavioral strategies that they could practice in the home.
I worked with parents in the home on nightly routines, modeled parental techniques to deal with defiance and ways to communicate as a family. From there, I decided that I wanted to go to school full-time to become a Board Certified assistant Behavior Analyst. I dropped out of my graduate speech language pathology program without any regrets.
I have been working as a behavior therapist with children with autism for over 12 years now and I love it!
Then God called me to Coaching…
In 2018, I traveled a lot and took a deep dive into my healing journey. I did things that scared me by traveling alone to Orlando to attend the Jesus Image Conference. When I was there, I was ministered to by a brother in the Lord who told me that I was like a mother. I did not understand what this meant but it now makes sense now with my eBook, “Motherhood Simplified By God.”
I remember it like it was yesterday. I had some friends that I met in North Carolina. They all spoke over my life and said that I see you doing coaching because you have the ability to counsel people and you have an easy going personality.
This was the open door that God opened for me. He said it is time daughter to do what I have called you to do.
When I first started my coaching business, I was not sure how to market or target my business. I knew that I was going to help parents but I wasn’t sure how I would do that.
God healed me from Childhood Trauma
God revealed to me that I would reach parents through the testimony of my life and my relationship with my mother. I experienced a lot of childhood trauma and it was the power of the Holy Spirit that healed me and taught me how to live not as an orphan but as a child of God.
Now here I am fulfilling the call to nurture moms with all that God has taught me.
