Femme or Faux is on a mission for Mary, Queen of Heaven, the New Eve! This ministry proclaims that each lady is a daughter (and heir!) of God. It seeks to mentor and equip ladies with truth that will guide them in life. Through talks, books, and media, ladies are invited to embrace the crown, that comes with authentic femininity, and reject the curse.

Jennessa earned a MA in Theological Studies from the Christendom Gradate School. She also holds a certificate in Youth Ministry (accredited by Franciscan University).

She has made appearances on EWTN, CatholicTV, radio, podcasts, online conferences, and has been featured in National Catholic Register (see Media tab above). Currently, she resides in New England with her husband and children.
The Princess Guide uses fairy tales—specifically the stories of three princesses (Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty)—to inspire young women to dignity, femininity, and fervent faith. With a timeless yet relevant voice, it explores issues important to women today. Scenes from the fairy tales are the backdrop for a new way to look at beauty, vocation, sexuality and chastity, modesty in fashion, and friendship. Personal stories and passages from Scripture, the wisdom of the saints, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church help you discover the princess within.

Road Signs for Catholic Teens offers new drivers tips on how to make the local roadway a path to God. Not unlike stain glass windows, icons, or saintly statues, road signs have the potential to express the faith. You've got the keys to the car, but how about the Kingdom? God still speaks, and he has something to say to you! Highlights include Faith and Science (Deer Crossing), Dating (Single Lanes End, Merge), and Christian Charity (Yield). It's time to become a road pilgrim!
