What You Need to Know About Me—Candace A. Jones

Hey, girl, hey! I think it’s time we get to know each other, okay? Let’s go!

A Little About Me

I’m a southern belle, through and through, born and raised in SC. I’m the youngest of three spectacular daughters to some awesome, God-fearing parents. When I was 13, my oldest sister beautifully changed my life after the birth of my oldest, brilliant nephew, who God would later use to save my life.

I’ve been a highly imaginative and avid reader throughout my childhood, pouring myself into every book I found. Amazingly enough, it showed because I’ve always had a knack for creating stories and poetry. I didn’t know that was one way God used to reveal part of my calling and purpose—to win others through my words—but thank God I never turned my back on writing.

Connecting the Dots

College years, 2011

I was good at many things as a student—yet I didn’t fully know what to pursue in college. My degree path was to double major in biochemistry and genetics. My goals were to be a scientist and a business owner. Then, in 2009, I began my first blog and realized it carried more weight than my personal healing. When I returned to college, I switched my major to English, planning to graduate with an emphasis in Writing & Publication studies, then obtain a Master’s degree in Rhetoric and Linguistics. During that time I realized a degree wouldn’t validate me—only Jesus could. College and degrees are not bad or wrong; it just wasn’t the path the Lord chose for me then.

Although writing short stories and poetry was my thing, I had no intention of becoming a professional or serial writer. Ha! I discovered my voice carries weight with the ability to help others.

Now, I’ve embraced who God called me—a daughter of the King, a wife, and a mom. I’m a kingdom blogger, author, entrepreneur (in the mental wellness, financial, and clean beauty spaces), and a minister of the Gospel.

My Why

I’m willing to share God’s story of grace and relentless love. I know the power of redemption personally. Because of His matchless love towards me, I will forever give Him my best yes.

My why is to show others how we should use everything Abba gives us and let it accrue interest. I want other wives and mamas to shine their light brilliantly where they are and never dim their brightness because of the monotony that comes via the dailyness of life.

When pleasing the Father becomes our motivation, we’ll never dull our shine for Christ again. We have tough seasons, but our loving Father controls even them.

Here’s my beautiful family: my first-class, magnificent, stellar husband—also my photographer—Falando,

our super-intelligent, joyful firstborn prince, DeAndrè,

our happy and marvelous second-born prince, Cailen,

and our precious third-born prince, sweet baby Micaiah!

Thank you for journeying with me. Let’s win life together for the glory of God!
