Welcome to my blog, Living in White Bear Lake.

My name is Jen.  I am married to my best friend and the mother to three young men, ages 25, 20 and 11 years.  This site is my ramblings on my life as a wife and mother in White Bear Lake.  Life is never dull and I feel truly blessed each and every day.

My husband and I are 2 years into our 4 year journey to become debt free, except our house. (6 years for that!) We are following Dave Ramsey’s baby steps and have been very happy with our progress so far.  On the blog we will share about our debt free journey in hopes to inspire others to join us in this very rewarding journey.

I love to cook and share recipes.  I share my weekly menu plan each week on the blog. I am working to rebuild my online cookbook on this site, so bear with me as I working on moving all my recipes.  I also love to read in my free time.  You can find book reviews and other reading related pasts on my reading blog, Reading in White Bear Lake.

We hope you will enjoy learning more about our family and will find inspiration in our journey.

Peace & Joy,
