About Good Life Detroit

Jennifer Hamra, creator of Good Life Detroit (8 months pregnant with baby Zaya, July 2020)


Good Life Detroit (GLD) is a family lifestyle blog created by Jennifer Hamra. On the blog, you will find topics on culture, family life, and motherhood.

After moving from Tennessee to the metro Detroit (2015), Jennifer started blogging about her family’s favorite things to do in Detroit.

I think it’s “the Detroit feeling” that led me to create Good Life Detroit. At first, I started the blog to share photographs of my family’s big move to the city.

Next thing I knew, we were attending more Detroit events, exploring the city, and learning more about Detroit’s diverse culture.

We started connecting with people who lived in Detroit and the metro area. I had to share our beautiful experiences with someone and the blog was a perfect place to share our journey!

Jennifer Hamra, “Why I Created Good Life Detroit”

Soon GLD transitioned into a family/women’s lifestyle blog. Jennifer started sharing family life topics on culture, homeschooling, motherhood, and parenting. “As my family started to expand,” she explains, “writing about more family topics and our own family experiences just felt right to me. I also wanted to share more cultural topics that are important to me, such as Black maternal health and other social justice issues.”
