Hi! My name is Jen Farlow and I'm a mama to my three-year-old princess Elissa Rose. I can usually be found on a running trail, enjoying tea and scones with a friend, exploring the beaches and wooded paths of my beloved Prince Edward Island, or with my nose in a good book. I am daily learning the secret of finding beauty, hope, and peace in a life that I never wanted or imagined.
I was seventeen when I met him. Athletic, tanned, and Southern, Nathan Farlow had a million-dollar smile and eyes the color of the sea. It took us all of five minutes to become best friends, and a few short months to realize that we were soulmates for life. On June 20, 2010 we had a fairytale wedding, and on September 8, 2014, our sweet Elissa Rose was born.
When Elissa was three weeks old, Nathan was killed by a drunk driver on his way home from work. Overnight I became a 26-year-old widow and single mother. I never thought I could live without Nathan, but each new day is a testament to God's faithfulness. He is in the business of creating beauty from ashes. I am learning that there is immense purpose in my suffering, if I have the courage to find it.
