Jenna C. Hoff is passionate about many things including gardening, growing and harvesting tea, older child adoption, parenting special needs teens, marriage, writing, miniscule focused photography, Canada, Christianity, nature and living well despite the curves and challenges of life. Living with a health condition for many years that has caused a severe form of chronic pain as well as speaking disabilities and low muscle strength has taught her that life is precious and a gift not to be taken lightly. When her health issues ended her career as a pediatric physical therapist she turned to adoption of (and now is mom to 16 year old Samantha, the daughter of her heart) and also to writing as a way to connect, contribute and create. Succeeding some days more than others, her goal is to live life with joy, passion, and both eyes and heart open for beauty despite the pain.
