The Unabridged Version:
Jenna Van Mourik is an inspired writer and an inspirational fiction reader who reads, writes, and lives for Jesus, but before she was an avid reader, writer, and reviewer, she was a teenage girl growing up in Sacramento, CA. She had always loved reading and storytelling as a child, but it wasn’t until her grandmother passed away suddenly and unexpectedly that she turned to Christian fiction to give her hope and relief during that difficult time. The books she found, literally changed her life.
In August of 2017 she married her high school sweetheart, and began to take her first steps towards pursuing the career of her dreams. She started a blog, began posting #Bookstagram pictures to her social media accounts, and signed up for several blogging programs with Christian publishers. She currently resides in Arizona with her husband and her toy Australian shepherd, Piper, where she studies writing in college.
When she’s not working on homework assignments, she’s promoting Christian Fiction on her Instagram account @jennavanmourik, posting book reviews and writing advice to her YouTube channel, writing for her blog, or working on her own book which she hopes to traditionally publish.
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
Philippians 4:8 NIV
Jenna has always loved reading and writing, and she loves merging her faith with those two things. She created this blog with the intention to promote the genre she loves the most, Christian fiction, and firmly believes that those who want to read good content need to support good content. As such, she does everything she can to promote authors who create that Phillipians 4:8 kind of content! Jenna hopes that one day she will be able to impact many people, not only with her reviews, but with her own writing, using her gifts to lead others to Christ in the same way some of her favorite authors already have.
