About me...


Hi, friends. I'm Jennifer (the J in JL). I look for God in the bushes (burning or otherwise), in books, on mountain tops, in conversations over waffle fries, underwater, and in gluten-free communion bread. I believe sometimes the unseen can be seen. When I catch a glimpse I take notes.

I'm a writer and Bible teacher (ex reporter and college English teacher). I've been writing and teaching about God since my first church Ladies' Day at the age of nine years old. I speak at events, lead Bible studies, and write Bible study curriculum and devotional materials.

My husband Justin Gerhardt--and partner here at JLGerhardt//God Scout--preaches at Round Rock Church of Christ just outside Austin, TX. Together we have two delightful, curious kids: London and Eve. We like hiking, swimming, exploring new places, and telling epic stories.

About God Scouting...


To scout is to seek. To explore to obtain information.

A God scout seeks the face of God, exploring what God’s made and is making, what God’s said and is saying, what God’s done and is doing, all to obtain information about Who and What “I AM” really is. 

God scouting is a little like deep space exploration and a little like climbing into your Father's lap.


Everything I do here at JLGerhardt//GODscout concentrates on this idea of seeking God's face. I want to know God more so I can love God more. And I want to help you do the same.
