HI! I’m Jennifer. Wife to Ronald. Mom to preteen, Mekhi and 8-year old Ayden. I’m a fam-focused, faith-filled, purpose-driven everyday girlfriend navigating life in the middle. I believe in purposeful pause and reflection ’cause sometimes you gotta slow down to gain perspective. And perspective is just what I’m sharing with other M.O.Ms (moms of middle schoolers).
Hi, I’m Mekhi and I’m 11 years old. I enjoy playing basketball, reading long novels, and pestering my sister. Some people call me a jokester but I’m just a naturally funny dude. My mom always says, “Be a kid as long as you can.” It’s kinda hard when everyone expects you to be so mature and grown up. But, I’m taking it one day at a time.

Who knew middle school would be so challenging for both preteens and parents? The Middle School Years is the “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” for moms of middle schoolers. The stuff your girlfriends never told you. Listen to the Podcast as preteen, Mekhi Leaks and his Mom, Jennifer Conner shares their experiences and perspective about life in the middle. You’ll laugh (’cause you gotta laugh), you’ll cry (’cause tears are healing) and you’ll thrive (’cause that’s what community is for).
