Big news for our family!

Those of you who have followed our family’s story over the years, or who read my book Like Living Among Scorpions, are familiar with Yaya.


Yaya who crushes wasps in her fist.

Yaya who once brought an oversized Easter Bunny to the house and expected the kids not to touch it.

Yaya who sends the kids home with bags of scorpions.

Yaya who quickly developed a great relationship with St. Anthony, despite not being Catholic.

I’m thrilled to tell you that Yaya’s latest adventure is that she is entering the Church! She has been in the Rite of Christian Initiation and will receive the Eucharist for the first time at the Easter Vigil Mass.


Watch out, Church! Yaya is about to be in the house!

Also, I think I have the concept for my next book: Yaya Meets Catholicism. That has bestseller written aaalllll over it.

It’s going to be a wild week so check Facebook, Instagram (@JenniferFulwiler), and Twitter (@JenFulwiler) for updates!

High expectations collide with low estimates of how many free hours I actually have in a day, and the result is lot of staring at Instagram in despair as I convince myself that everyone else gets an A+ for their holiday celebrations and I get an… [Continue Reading]

My kid lost a toy…and I found a clue


Recently my nine-year-old daughter lost her favorite stuffed animal, a pink dog named Princess. She carries the bed toy everywhere — it is seriously like a seventh child in our family (or, maybe like the 15th or 16th child if you count all the other stuffed animals that we treat like royalty around here). I was… [Continue Reading]
