Swallow Hard, Vote Trump

By JESSICA KASTNER | October 12, 2020

Down the street from us lives a U.S. Congressman who delivers church sermons on the weekends, has an MBA, and loves his fellow veterans. I wish he was running for President. But he’s not.

Marriage is Killing the Anarchist in Me

By JESSICA KASTNER | September 17, 2020

I married a rule follower. Like a lifelong Boy Scout, ex-military rule follower who files his taxes in January and would rather lose an appendage than park illegally.

By JESSICA KASTNER | September 1, 2020

In an attempt to maintain quasi-delusional hope that this quarantine season shall soon be behind us, I felt like posting a list of all the things I will actually miss about being homebound with my children, all the day long (and we have a combined 5). Of course none of this makes up for tolerating…Read More »

Failure Rests in Yesterday

By JESSICA KASTNER | August 14, 2020

I have become a morning person. I don’t know how or why it happened, but there it is. Aside from enjoying the magnificent blend of caffeine and worship time, I just love the feeling of a new day and the concept of a fresh start. New decisions to be made, new ways to see God…Read More »

She leads Bible studies within juvenile detention centers for Straight Ahead Ministries, and can be found most days on the trampoline with her copious amount of children, wishing she’d ordered the turbo shot.
