Jenni Greaves is a Brisbane mum with over 25 years experience. She's Associate Director of a successful tourism business, a worship leader and universal mum to countless youth service and smash camp attendees over many years.
In Part 1 of this episode Jenni explains how God came and found her after her first child was born. Unexpectedly, it was through her husband's return to faith that Jenni was brought into a church setting. Then, continually drawn back not only through her own children but the neighbours kids as well, Jenni found her faith and understanding growing through songs and children's Bible stories.
In Part 2 Jenni describes how children have continued to speak into her faith. She speaks about nursing her own mother through the last 8 weeks of her life and seeing the faithfulness of God as all the children, biological and otherwise that she has gathered over the years, spoke hope into her mother's final days.
