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, was no. 1 at Barnes & Noble and in the top 25 on all of Amazon. (I’m still doing a happy dance.)

I’m an extreme introvert who speaks all over the country and founded a women’s conference. Topics include living without limits, rethinking balance, and the spiritual life.

Your friend Jen

I’m on a mission to encourage you to live a passionate, imperfect life without limits.

[NOTE: If you are an event organizer or media producer looking for an official bio or pictures, please see my Media Kit here.]

I’m Jennifer Fulwiler, a radio host on SiriusXM, bestselling author, speaker, and mother of six. I’m doing my best to live without limits, without guilt, and without much sleep.

My latest book, One Beautiful Dream, is about how to love and appreciate who you are, even if you’re imperfect (which we all are). In it, I detail the struggles I went through as I tried to find how to use my God-given gifts while still putting my family first.

My “me time” is my two-hour daily radio show, The Jennifer Fulwiler Show. I also chronicle my daily experiences on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, where I post about severed doll heads and the complexity of life. I’ve been a guest on Huffington Post Live, Fox and Friends, and other national television shows, which taught me it is extremely important to have a professional blow-out if you’re going to be anywhere near television camera lights. A crazy religious awakening in 2007 inspired me to start blogging about my adventures and mishaps in spirituality, which eventually led to my first book, Something Other than God.

I live in Austin, Texas, with my family of eight and 130-pound dog. My love language is being left alone in silent rooms.

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 were both only children. Our homes used to be so quiet.
  • 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’m a cerebral, skeptical, cynical person but I also take my faith seriously.
  • Sometimes I make questionable decisions like taking my entire family on a month-long book tour.

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.
