1. Lee’s favorite food is Mexican food and considers chips and salsa her best-case scenario.

2. Lee’s an adoptive mom whose oldest daughter was born in Guatemala.

" Jennifer Gentner leads by example. She is patient.  She has high expectations, but she makes those expectations clear and enables her children to meet those expectations.  She partners with God in her parenting, and intentionally works on her marriage to Robert, which creates a loving environment where their children flourish.  She spends quality time with each child and is diligent about building relationships with them."
