Picture of Jean E. Jones
Welcome! I was raised in a non-Christian home, but believed a god existed. At 15, I read the New Testament and somewhere between John 3 and 5 discovered Jesus as Savior. That left me yearning to know God’s Word more and teach it to others.

Besides teaching, I write Bible study guidebooks, such as Philippians: Steps to Joy & Peace and The Story: Personal Journal & Discussion Guide. I’ve published in Today’s Christian Woman (Christianity Today International) and Home Life (Southern Baptist Convention), including these:

I’m happily married to my high school sweetheart, Clay, who teaches apologetics at Biola University. His always fascinating blog is at www.clayjones.net.

I love reading novels curled up by a fire in the winter and anywhere the rest of the year. I grow lots of herbs for cooking and flowers for hummingbirds. The grapevine banner at the top of this site comes from a painting by Clay’s mom. She called it Joy Comes in the Morning.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (NIV)
