Jen Wilking

Hi, I'm Jen.

I’m in a season of transition, and I’m writing to find my way. I’m putting the pieces together after the loss of my father and the emptying of my nest. By sharing the process, I hope to bring you depth, humor, and joy for the journey.

A perpetual seeker, I’ve long sought answers from others. I’m learning to listen for my own voice, to trust my own knowing. I'm drawn to humor and paradox. I find great joy in books, nature, green tea, and music. I dream of making positive contributions to the world and living by the ocean.

I write on Medium, Instagram, & Twitter.
