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 the Carpenter 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.
