What I Do

I host a two-hour daily live radio show called The Jennifer Fulwiler Show on SiriusXM channel 129, where I share fresh takes on pop culture and the spiritual life.

I write books. My latest humor memoir, One Beautiful Dream, is a Wall Street Journal bestseller as well as a no. 1 at Barnes & Noble and in the top 25 on all of Amazon.

with More about me

  • My favorite genres of music are Gregorian chant and gangsta rap.
  • I had six kids in eight years. Six. In eight years.
  • My husband and I are both only children. My dad is also an only child. So basically I have no idea what I’m doing with my big family most days.
  • I’m an INTP. In case you’re not familiar with Myers-Briggs personality types, let me put it this way: I once saw a sci-fi movie about a man who was a brain in a jar, and I thought, “What a great life.”
  • I was raised atheist, my husband was raised nondenominational, and we both converted to Catholicism.
  • My kids are regularly seen in public without shoes because keeping up with matching footwear for so many people is waaaaay more than I can handle.

My Family

I met my husband, Joe, while we were both working at a high tech company. Joe was raised by a single mother, grew up poor, and ended up going to Yale, Columbia, and Stanford. Today, he is a CPA and attorney. Sometimes he dresses up like a banana.

I homeschool our six kids. God gave me absolutely none of the gifts and talents one would need to be an effective homeschool teacher, so that’s always an adventure.

Our kids are passionate, funny, argumentative, opinionated, joyful, faithful, hilarious, and everything I’d hoped for when I became a mom. Our oldest and youngest are boys, and we have four wild and girly girls in the middle. The first time we visited a monastery with our oldest, he thought it was the most amazing thing he’d ever seen—that there’s a place where you can hang out with only other dudes in silence.

Joe and I survive by the maxim: You don’t have to be perfect to be a perfect parent. You can read our rollicking tale of family chaos in One Beautiful Dream.
