hey there

I am Jennifer Williams. Welcome to a quiet pause.

little about my blog...

It is a place where I am learning to journal a few quiet pauses in my ordinary, busy life. Let's get real for a minute. When I say busy, you know what I mean. Most of our lives are full and overflowing. It is hard to catch a breath or break some days. When we don't pause to refuel and refresh, we run on empty, and eventually, burn out. But, there is a better way...

Jesus said,

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened,

and I will give you rest."

Matthew 11:28

In Mark 6:31, Jesus also told his disciples to "Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest." Jesus knew they could not continue their ministry, their work, without quiet time and rest with him. Neither can we.

My prayer is that this blog would encourage and inspire you to find quiet pauses with Jesus, to discover and embrace an abundant life rooted in God's promises, and let Him refuel and refresh you.

"In quietness and trust is your strength"

Isaiah 30:15

a little bit about me...

I have been married to my husband for thirty years. I have two grown sons - one by brith and one by adoption. I live in a small town south of Nashville where I enjoy the simple things in life like long walks, sweet tea, flowers, birdwatching, and date nights. I have a graduate degree in psychology and have served in ministry for the last 25 years. I have a passion for writing and encouraging women to find quiet pauses in their busy lives.

I am so thankful for the love and abundant grace of Jesus and for my sweet family and friends that make good times even better and hard times much better, too.

Thanks again for stopping by for a quiet pause.
