The reality is that, if you live long enough, you’re going to suffer. If you’ve experienced profound loss, you may know what it’s like to just not know if you can go on. “I literally did not feel like I would live through that pain,” says our guest on this episode of the Southern Fried Girlfriends podcast. Jennifer Yearty Martin knows what it feels like to suffer loss. Some of the hardest – from an incredibly difficult divorce to the loss of a child. But she has so much wisdom that has helped her find happiness even in the midst of pain. One of those things is the value of girlfriends. Can I get an Amen?! Y’all are going to love Jennifer.
Jennifer Martin is a self-described extrovert, a “2” in its clearest sense on the Ennegram scale. She’s a lover of people and wife to Jimmy, Mom to Emery (6) and James (3). Jennifer was born and raised (& still residing) in Marietta and grew up believing that she was going to be an astronaut (even attending Space Camp in the 80’s for a week!). She loves all things Southern & happiest when her home is filled with folks. Whether having friends over for dinner, hosting a brunch, baby shower, game night, she enjoys any reason to get together! Jennifer is passionate about Women’s Ministry and sharing her story of pain, hope and redemption. One girl’s journey of climbing mountains “In Cute Shoes”
