About Me

Hi, my name is Jen Stem and I am the face behind StuMinWife.com! Thank you for checking out this blog. Along with blogging here, I also enjoy dabbling in photography, singing, drinking tea and coffee, posting pictures of my cats on Instagram, and laughing at corny jokes. I am currently employed in Worship and Creative Arts at Claremore Assembly of God and have been a licensed minister with the Assembles of God since 2011. I am also the Student Ministry Wife of my husband Jon, who is the Student Pastor of Refresh Student Ministry.

I started StuMinWife.com after coming to realize that most StuMinWives have at one time or another felt alone in their journey of ministry while being married to a Student Pastor. After hearing story after story and knowing my own life as a StuMinWife, I decided to start a blog where women who fit this or a similar role in ministry could connect, find resources, and be encouraged by others who are walking this journey as well. I believe that God never intended for us to do this alone. In a world dominated by insecurity and comparison among women, my prayer is that this can be a place where we can learn to grow stronger together. I’d love for you to join me in this journey!
