Today over at Good Morning Girls we are announcing our NEWEST contributor Jen Thorn! And here we are 15 years ago – rockin some BIG rather dark – hair lol!
18 years ago, I arrived as a nervous freshman from Ohio, at the Moody Bible Institute. I settled into my new home in Houghton Hall dorm on 9 North and there across the hall lived this sweet girl with a beautiful smile. Jen had arrived in Chicago all the way from Germany and little did I know that God had a special friendship in store for me. Over the next four years, we’d become roommates, life long friends, we’d laugh, cry, share clothes, talk boys and surprisingly talk theology half the night! This girl runs deep!
During those four years of college, I was dating my husband long distance – so this poor girl had to endure me monopolizing the one phone in our room (there weren’t cell phones or email yet – just long distance calling cards!) and me writing snail mail nightly letters to my man. She helped me to enjoy life while my heart ached to be with the man I was head over heels in love with and trust me – that was a bigger task than you realize…I told LOTS of Keith stories people! lol! Which means this girl is a patient listener!
Jen was also head over heels in love with a very wise and intelligent student named Joe (who blogs at JoeThorn.net) – who also happened to be one of my close friends. This guy’s theology rocked my world – he was the source of Jen and I’s very late night theology discussions! lol! I think he taught me more about Theology than all three of my Theology courses at Moody combined! But I’m off track now – back to Jen! They married! Yes, they married the week after graduation and I was in her wedding.
And then I married 3 months later and she was in my wedding!
That’s Jen on my left and surely you recognize who’s on my right??? It’s Angela my partner at GoodMorningGirls.org! What huge blessings these girls have been in my life and I am SO excited to be coming together here and serving along side of them…
