20 Things to Know About Me

I started this blog to have a place where I can share my story, express my passions and just write down my thoughts. I’m excited to begin and I figured a little ‘Get to know me’ post will be the best place to start. So, here are 20 things about me. 20 things that’ll give you a small glimpse of who I am and what I’m about.

  1. I’m 20 years old which means I’m a 90s kid who doesn’t remember anything about the 90s.
  2. My full name is Jazmin Faith Henson. My mom said that when I was born, I went un-named for 3 days. My parents finally agreed on the name Jazmin as long as it was spelled with a ‘z’. My middle name, Faith, was given to me because my parents felt that God’s plan for my life would heavily involve faith in Him, boy were they right.
  3. I am married to my best friend who is the most caring man in the world. Eythan Henson became my husband August 19th 2017. He is a man devoted to God. I couldn’t imagine my life without him.

  4. I am an optimist in every aspect of life. The glass is always half full in my eyes.
  5. Dogs are God’s best creation. The bigger the better. If I see a dog in public you bet I’m asking their owner if I can pet them. Dogs bring me joy. Dogs are everything.
  6. I have 2 dogs. Well, one of them is my parents dog (I have to say she’s my parents dog because she lives with them but she really is mine). Her name is Sadie and she is a 10-year-old chocolate lab. She has been through everything with me and she is my pacifier and best friend. I love her more than anything in the world (Shhh, don’t tell Eythan). My Other dog is my german shepherd puppy, Lacey. My amazing husband surprised me with her for Christmas. She is the sweetest, calmest and most mischievous thing out there. She’s my Little Dog. Lacey’s Instagram


  7. I’m a ginger. This explains a lot…
  8. My favourite colour is green. I’m a redhead, I basically have to love it since it looks so good on me. (I’m also really humble)
  9. I’m a true Northern girl. I grew up outside of Sudbury Ontario.
  10. So I naturally grew up playing hockey. I played for 9 years and loved every minute of it. I absolutely love playing hockey but will not watch it.
  11. I have a passion for counselling/volunteering at summer camp. I grew up going to Aush-Bik-Koong bible camp which was my favourite week of every summer. I absolutely love being there, in Gods creation, getting to know and show love to the campers. I would say that ABK is probably my favourite place on earth.
  12. I have stage IV cancer. I was diagnosed in 2014 with Adrenocortical Carcinoma after doctors found a 14 cm tumour on my adrenal gland.
  13. I’m a total foodie. I LOVE food. Since I’ve been sick, I’ve had to eat a very strict diet so I’ve learned to really appreciate rich and fresh flavours. My sister Vangie is an amazing cook which makes her one of my favourite people.
  14. I have 6 siblings. (This includes my in-laws but I count them as siblings just the same). Kyle, Charity, Dan (Charity’s husband), Devyn and Aryanna are Eythan’s siblings. Vangie is my older sister. I love them all dearly.

  15. Although I’m a Northern girl, I’m also a total girly girl. I love clothes and makeup and hair. I love dressing up and looking fancy.
  16. Home décor is something I really appreciate. Eythan and I recently moved into our new apartment and I am beyond excited to dress it up.
  17. I love everything natural. I love essential oils, clean foods and I am enthusiastic about using natural products.
  18. I’ve been living in both Ontario and Arizona lately. My true home is in Ontario but right now my cancer treatment is in Arizona so I go back and fourth.
  19. I’m one of the most nostalgic people out there (according to my husband). Reminiscing with my 2 best friends, Serena Reimer and Emily Loewen, is my favourite thing to do. We 3 have been best friends since well, forever. Emily is my cousin and Serena has been in my life since I was 3. I love them both so much.

  20. And the most important thing about me is my faith in Jesus. He is my Lord and saviour and my comforter. He is strong in my weakness. Knowing that God loves me unconditionally is something that gets me through every single day.
