Great story!

Lauren Carpenter says:

Your story is so inspiring! I'm in the process of self-publishing my own book of poetry and after watching your video, I feel incredibly motivated and moved. It was nice to learn about the whole process and the challenges and successes you achieved! You have such perseverance to keep going for your dream after the traditional path was full of roadblocks. Your story is an inspiration to anyone <3 I particularly admired how you believed in the value of your book, even when traditional publishers rejected it time after time, you are amazing! Thank you for posting this video and helping others become motivated to pursue their own dreams.

You are such an inspiration

Vicki Zimmerman says:

Jennifer, I finally had a quiet afternoon to watch your inspiring self-publishing success story video and I savored every minute of it. You are a true inspiration and the photos at the end, with your joyous, uplifting smile and words of encouragement were so powerful: Work Hard. Never give up on your dreams. Have faith. Every way you live your life is grounded in kindness, actually intentional and heartfelt kindness, and you've given me inspiration and hope no matter where we are in our lives. I would very much like to know more about your intentional efficiency which would be most helpful to your readers and the creative pursuits we are pursuing. You have a beautiful way of sharing your insights and tools to inspire us to make our own progress. Sending love and hugs!!! P. S. I'm really curious to hear if Erica of Trident Media or Simon and Schuster were on your initial submissions list of agents and publishers. You also didn't finish your story on why your novel wasn't published. I want to read your novel, too!

Tamara Skinner says:

Thank you, thank you for telling your story. You are truly inspiring, Iโ€™ve loved writing since I was a child, wanted to be a librarian, somehow forgot for a brief moment being caught up! If you know what I mean. Have read all your books growing up though and have always found you to be ssssooo inspiring. I always turn back to your books actually, a specially when I feel like Iโ€™m all over the place! Iโ€™m a recent new mother of three and have always felt like I am going to be a writer, in some way, you give me confidence to pursue this dream. To turn it into reality. Thanks again for sharing your story!

Hi Jennifer ! ๐Ÿ™‚ So glad I found you here tonight . I am wondering if you and your literary agent can turn these fabulous books of yours into a fun movie ?!
It took me awhile to end up buying the first book … unsure why … yet I kept seeing it over and over …so thought it must be wanting to come to me and finally purchased your first Madame Chic book …and before I even got a few pages in … I went on Amazon and ordered the other two right away ! ๐Ÿ™‚
Thank you for this video ! Very inspiring and ….you are so personable! Your writing voice is just like your sparklie personality !!
I actually got your first book then the other two … after my best friend from age 13, and I went to London and Paris for the first time . We planned it since we were 13 ! I illustrated the whole trip while I was there ๐Ÿ™‚ she said at a cafe by Moulin Rouge up the hill … Hey …you are missing it … I said missing what ?! We are waiting for our order and I am enjoying our time together and capturing it right now so it has the energy and the knowing that when I see it I know it was created right in the spot !
You deserve all great things that come to you and I wish you lots and lots more prosperity and lovely experiences and delights to come to you and your family ! ๐Ÿ™‚
Your first book has resonated with me on a lot of things you learned by living with the family in Paris ! I have all three books in my night table . I have not read all thru them yet because I do t want them to end … so I am taking peeks here and there and trying to stretch them out ! It makes me happy to have them with some other favorite books next to me when I sleep. ๐Ÿ™‚
I also plan on giving all three to my best childhood friend who I went on the trip with as gifts !
You have such a warm conversational tone ! I love it ! I am also so thrilled to have found your YOU tube channel tonight ! … it's actually either. Try late at night or very earrrrllly in the morning … it's still dark so I like to say it's evening still ๐Ÿ™‚
I will look thru your other YOU tube videos and look forward to your other books .
Please see if it's possible to consider your Paris Adventures into becoming a movie ๐Ÿ™‚ maybe you will rework to become a screen writer to do that … the world could use a little Paris Sparkle story in a movie form . I think your 'voice' could translate really beautifully into a movie where woman and girls ( and men and boys ) could gather in a theater and watch something beautiful and uplifting !
Ahhhhh ๐Ÿ™‚ … if it dies get turned into a movie , won't you please let me know ๐Ÿ™‚ me and my friends will be the first ones to get tickets ! ๐Ÿ™‚
Why not ?! ๐Ÿ™‚
Have a beautiful sunny day ! Thank you for the gift of your time for the video ! I am going to send it to two of my friends ! ๐Ÿ™‚ and anyone else I come across who would enjoy it !
Warmly , Marseaย Gallagher The Empress of Glamour ๐Ÿ˜‰

Jennifer. Wow. Credit where credit is due. Thankful for your story of hard work, perseverance, and success. Blessings.

Debbie Mettler says:

Yes! To God be the glory! I am so happy for you, and happy to be on the receiving end of your gifts and talents. I began to write a book when my older daughter was two, and she just turned twenty-three. Life happened and I needed to go into survival mode for many years. But, I think that the Lord is showing me, through your testimony and encouragement, that the time to resume writing is now. Thank you, my friend. Debbie, L.A., CA

MB Solomon says:

Thanks for sharing your entire story, with all the nitty gritty details! Loved it. Thank you again.

Tamatha says:

This is so amazing and wonderful and inspiring! ๐Ÿ™‚

Ashley Gaver says:

I love seeing how your story has evolved. Iโ€™ve watched you for several years now and even in the past year or so…you have changed so much…I know youโ€™ve gotten some hate for that, but as another homeschool mother of 3, I love seeing more of your real life. Everyday isnโ€™t glamorous, but I love gleaning ideas from you on cultivating arts and beauty into ordinary days.

Anne says:

I have been following you for years and this is probably one of your best offerings! Thank you for sharing. Thank you for your calm and wise advice on more than writing; on how to live to achieve goals. Thank you for your humility, honesty and recognition of God's hand in all of this. So. Just. Thank you.
