Hi!  I'm Jess!

I’m so glad you’re here and I’m excited to meet you.

A little bit about me…


I’m a stay at home mom living in northern Virginia with my husband Mikael, and our three kids, Skylar, Erik & Evelyn. I love Jesus, coffee, family & friends.

I'm a follower of Jesus and that is at the heart and center of everything that I write about.  I spend my free time learning about Him, listening to sermons, digging deep into the Word and praying.  I pray that my life is a living testimony to His saving grace and that you leave here filled with His comfort and strength.

Mikael and I moved from Minnesota to Virginia a few days after we were married in 2016, so our marriage has had quite a few twists and turns from the very beginning! We love to travel, find adventures near our home, visit breweries and wineries, and hang out at the house with our little family. While we miss our MN people, we love living in VA and making new friends here too. The nicer winters are a definite bonus.

I would love to connect with you and hear your story! Email me at hallstromheartandhome@gmail.com or sign up to receive updates on new blog posts.
I’m on Instagram and Pinterest too, let’s be friends!

With Joy, Jessica
