We are so excited to introduce you to a dynamic, positive force in our community, Jackie Hooks! Jackie brings an inspiring energy everywhere she goes. She has had quite a roller coaster of a life but has found a way to use words to reframe her story and encourages others to do the same with their stories.
Thank you for listening, you don’t want to miss this one!
About Jackie, in her words:
I am an everyday ordinary gal who started following Jesus just a little over a decade ago, and has fallen
madly in love with theCarpenter King who saved my life and my marriage. Corey and I are raising
four holy moly messes (Jake 13, Jude 12, Grace 10 and Joshua 4).I am technically a stay at home
mom, but rarely do I find myself at home, and the soap opera and bon bon life hasn’t found its way into
my living room just yet. I do occasionally allow for a small celebration when all the laundry is clean
AND folded at the SAME TIME on the SAME DAY…and that is typically twice a decade.
And I write. And I speak.Words have been the tool Jesus gave me from the very beginning of my life
to navigate every road I have walked. My hope is that my words inspire and encourage you to see
Jesus in your everyday too. He is right here waiting for each of us, in the daily mess, hoping we see He
wants so much more from us and for us than we could ever imagine. I pray my words will lead you to Him.

Brenda Hughes is not your typical “church lady,” with an edgy undercut and sleeves of tattoos, but this is what the employees and performers of Austin-area strip clubs have endearingly named her. Multiple times a year, Brenda and her small team, dive into the world of exotic dancing to bring a message of love. She never overtly talks about Jesus unless prompted. She is there simply to show that no one is too far into darkness to be reached with love and light. This episode is a very candid conversation that contains some mild swearing and we are talking about strip clubs sooo…. keep that in mind if you listen with your kiddos around.
