Saturday @ 11:00am & 2:30pmJennie Komp

Jennie Komp is a student of stories and their impact on our lives. She studied theater education and was quickly drawn to the stories that held the greatest meaning in the simplest of words. Now she spends her free time creating videos for her youtube channel,”Bedtime Bear,” so she can read to her 25+ nieces and nephews far away. And she writes and edits books she hopes will have a lasting impact on our world.
