Hey there, I'm Jennifer
Also known as the "Driver" on this crazy train.
I'm a fearless Mama to 3 crazy little people through adoption, and one home grown (they ironically ALL look like my husband)
I'm a wife, a Designer by degree and a Woodworker at heart. I can be found most days with sawdust in my hair and paint stains on my jeans. When I'm not designing furniture to build I design custom brands and websites for other furniture builders.
I've been married 7 years and have been designing and building for 10+ years now. Throughout that time our family has saved countless thousands of dollars by designing and building our own furniture for our home and our customers.
We want to support YOU, the maker, the woodworker, the diyer, the craftsman.
Rather you do it for your job, for your family, for just for fun, we get it., and we're here to help.
at NJS Design Company...
You can call us crazy to our face, it's ok we would too.
We went from 0 to 3 kids in one day, crazy is about the best word to describe it.
We also somehow find time to design and build beautiful custom furniture for our home and others.
Told ya, crazy!
Seriously though, At NJS Design Company we love what we do! We can't help it we're a little different than most families, and a little different than most couples. Our life is fun and hectic, and we're trying really hard to make Jesus known in it all. As a husband and wife team working side by side, we want to make our Creator famous by using our gifts and talents for Him.
"For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God." Hebrews 3:4

Loving others well
A few ways you're helping us give back
At NJS Design Company, we feel blessed to get to do what we love and call it work!
We believe that it is our privilege and responsibility to show Christ's love by giving back and partnering with organizations that do the same.
Through the years, we’ve supported some amazing organizations. Please take a look into how your project helps us contribute to efforts of orphan care and family preservation, locally and around the world.
lifeline children's services
We know that as Christians, we have all been adopted by our Heavenly Father. Adoption is a beautiful picture of the gospel on earth that points us back toward Christ. The Mission of Lifeline Children’s Services is to equip the body of Christ to manifest the gospel to orphaned and vulnerable children.
both hands foundation
Both Hands mission is to fulfill James 1:27 by serving orphans, widows, and Christian adoptive families.
Both Hands' purpose is to help Christian adoptive families fund their adoptions by coordinating a service project fixing up a widow’s home.
Both Hands' vision is to see the day when finances are not an obstacle for Christian families who are led to adopt, while simultaneously serving every widow in need of home repairs.
Feeding the orphans
Feeding the Orphans is a grassroots organization founded by 10 year old, Sydney O’Leary, in 2010. We exist to advocate for the fatherless of West Africa in Jesus’ name by providing for their basic earthly needs in order to provide for their spiritual need to know Christ. FTO works in partnership with existing Christian ministries when possible. If needs are identified that reach beyond the capabilities or scope of these ministries, FTO becomes the driving force to provide for those in need.
Athletes in action - a cru ministry
Our mission is to build spiritual movements everywhere through the platform of sports so that everyone knows someone who truly follows Jesus. Our vision is to see a day when there are Christ-followers on every team, in every sport, in every nation.
