Meet  Your Guide


I am Jessica Henderson- a mama of 19 years and a Certified Purejoy Parent Coach! I live in Alaska with my husband and our five kiddos.  My parenting journey has seen me to my highest highs, and my lowest lows- and what I love most about being a mama is that it is never stagnant- yeah? We are always learning and growing, and noticing something so alive to grab onto and enjoy in the moment we find ourselves.

I believe that each of us carries deep wisdom in our beings. The answers you are seeking about parenting – are with you already and through this course that Leslie has written, I’m here to support you to rediscover them.

My own motherhood journey found me feeling trapped, stuck, depleted, confused, and despairing. That’s when I took Parenting Paused- and it so radically changed the way I viewed my parenting journey.

I found so much resonance here, that I went from this course to more offerings, to training as a coach, right up to today, where I am so honored to sit in a place of offering the course back to you!


Jess made us feel comfortable and valued from the get-go.
I was more reactive before Parenting Paused with Jess.
I knew I shouldn’t be, but I didn’t
know how to change when my big feelings flared up.
Now I feel like I know myself better and can communicate with myself
when I feel those big feelings instead of pushing all that energy out on my family.
