What’s Growing Toward The Sun?

Heliotropic: The growth or movement of a fixed organism, especially a plant, toward or away from sunlight. Heliotropism can be easily seen in sunflowers, which slowly turn their large flowers so that they continually face the sun.

My name is Jennifer and I am a reluctant graphic designer who spends my time searching for a headache fix, talking to my 13 year old about all the big questions and blogging about life and challenges. I’m hoping this blog, along with my other social media channels, will become a place of sharing and growing and figuring things out together. I love hearing others’ stories and points of view!

I see it all around us. Spirituality is something that we practice in a million tiny ways each day. As long as you’re trying and learning—you’re growing toward the sun.

“Seek the light, defend the light, increase the light, turn your face toward the light, become the light.” —Elizabeth Gilbert

Yeah. Let’s Grow Toward the Sun.



  1. I found a link to your blog from the weightwatchers community forum. I enjoyed the funny yet serious way you looked at things. I appreciate your honesty. And, no you are not alone in thinking that the “patient mom” from the bounty commercial is a moron.
