About Jennifer

Hi! Welcome to my little corner of the internet! My name is Jennifer Neyhart (pronounced N-ī-hart, think N-eye-heart).

I have a passion for studying and teaching the Bible and Theology. (I've also spent a lot of time focused on C. S Lewis over the years as he is one of my favorite authors!) I started Seminary (the first time!) in 2014 and graduated on May 18, 2019, with my Master of Arts in Theological Studies. This was my second Master's degree because I was originally pursuing teaching Literature, so I earned my MA in English from the University of Louisville in 2009.

Then, plot twist, in June of 2020 due to the economic downturn from the pandemic, I was laid off from my corporate cubicle job where I had worked since 2011. The good news is that freed me to take a risk and follow the nudge/call that I had been resisting for a long time towards some kind of pastoral ministry. So, that's right, I'm back in seminary again, this time working towards my MDiv (Master's of Divinity, which really seems like a bit of a stretch to think that anyone could "master" divinity... but I digress.)

I am passionate about a great many things. Clearly, I am passionate about theology. But I believe that theology matters deeply because bad theology leads to death, both metaphorical and literal.

On a lighter note, I love Fantasy and Science Fiction stories, especially epic tales such as The Lord of the Rings and the Harry Potter series. I also love Star Trek and Star Wars, Marvel and DC Superhero stories (I am an equal opportunity nerd), and Doctor Who. I'm a bit of a LEGO Maniac, or Adult Fan of LEGO (AFOL). And I also love playing board games. And singing. And I love musicals. (I told you I have a lot of interests!)

Most of all, I really love people. I have more friends than I am able to keep up with! (ENFJ here.) I am also deeply empathetic and my heart aches so much for those who are suffering. I am especially concerned with raising awareness about mental illness, eradicating stigma, and encouraging people to get the help they need.

I tend to write about C. S. Lewis, books, movies, and various topics in theology. In 2017 I start ranking the movies I've seen starting with movies made in 2017 and going backward year by year. I went all the way back to the movies of the 1950's-1960's! If you want to keep up with my posts, sign up for free updates by entering your email below:
