Mad for…Jenny

Intense love does not measure, it just gives. St. (Mother) Teresa of Calcutta

From afar, I spotted an old acquaintance today named Jenny Hubbard. Jenny is the mother of three who is pictured above with her husband, Dan, and her kiddos in this slightly dated photo. She’s a beautiful woman with a bright and compassionate countenance.

I met Jenny at St. Louis de Montfort Catholic School where her children and mine were enrolled, but I got to know her a bit better through the CRHP experience. If you’re Catholic and you haven’t gone on one of these “Christ Renews His Parish” retreats, you really are missing out. They are a wonderful way to really connect with others in your parish on a more personal and spiritual level. Jenny impressed me as a truly genuine and kind soul during our time together, and I’ve always had great respect for her since that experience.

Jenny has a gentle and caring spirit and she smiles easily. She has spent a lot of her energy and time over the past several years helping pregnant women from our community to have healthier pregnancies, become better parents, and take steps towards self-sufficiency at the Women’s Care Center in Indianapolis. The pregnancy resource center is the largest, most successful such center in America and they support and educate women facing unplanned pregnancies. It’s beautiful work which certainly has Jesus smiling down on all who are involved. In fact, if you want to know more or you’d like to help, visit for more information!

Start by doing what’s necessary, then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible. (St. Francis of Assisi)

I am long overdue to thank Jenny for the stunning example of selflessness she shows us all by the way she has lived her life. Just like St. Francis instructs, Jenny just seemed to put one foot in front of the other, trusting in providence, and before I knew it, she was off to the races doing amazing work every single day. I don’t know Jenny as well as I’d like, but from my perch over here on Randolph Crescent Drive, she’s been a very solid wife, mother, friend, and amazing pro-life advocate with a good portion of her life. You, Mrs. Hubbard, are the real deal and I am inspired by your energetic and positive spirit! Keep doing you, Jenny, because you are an extra large scoop of fantastic!
