My Story

Hello friend and welcome to my blog “Younique Expression”. My name is Jennifer and I live in “Sweet Home Alabama”. I am a 31-year-old single mother to one precious, strong-willed little girl. When I was 19 years old, I was not living my life right and ended up pregnant. Once I realized my decisions were going to be affecting my unborn child, I rededicated my life to God. At three months pregnant, my daughter’s father left me, and when Marissa was 11 months old, he quit picking her up for visitation. I have been single for going on twelve years now. Thankfully, I am in a position where I do not have to rely on a man to support me and my daughter. Right now I feel that my attention needs to be on my daughter. There will be plenty of time for dating later. I know if I am patient God will bring a man into my life to complete me, and I do not want to settle.

What is Younique Expression about?

Can I admit something to you? I get overwhelmed. My life is overflowing, and there are times that I feel out of control. Since having my daughter, I have lost my identity. What is it that Jennifer wants to accomplish with her life? I want to:

1) Gain control of my finances

2) Keep a clean home, at least moderately (just keeping it real, my home will always look lived in)

3) Take time to work on my health and fitness so I can continue to help take care of others

4) Organize my life, so I do not feel overwhelmed with clutter

5) Build a strong relationship with my daughter

5) Still have time to do things I enjoy

Look, we all know how chaotic life can get, but I hope we can find ways to make life easier and more enjoyable together. Welcome on this journey to find joy, contentment, and maybe a little sanity.



The goal is not to change who you are but to become more of who you are at your best.” – Sally Hogshead

I look forward to getting to know you.

Your Best Year Ever

A New Year Are you ready to have your best year ever? 2015 has been a pretty good year. Thankfully I am still surrounded by all of my loved ones, and everyone is in reasonably good health. That is of utmost importance; however, I feel like my life has been unfulfilled. Don't get me wrong, I have an excellent job, a comfortable home, and a lovely family. There just seems to be something missing. I want more than to exist; I want to thrive. I have always wondered why we seem to wait until New … [Read More...]
