Hey girlfriends! Candace A. Jones here. I think it’s time we get to know each other, okay? Now that you know my name…
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, born to some pretty awesome God-fearing parents. When I was 13, my life was beautifully changed after the birth of my oldest, brilliant nephew, who God would later use to save my life.
Throughout my childhood, I’ve been a highly imaginative and avid reader. Whatever I could get my hands on to read, I would pour myself into it. 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 was revealing part of my calling and purpose–to win others through my words–but thank God I never turned my back on writing.
I was good at many things as a student–yet I didn’t fully know what to pursue in college. My degree paths varied from biochemistry to English. It was during that time I realized a degree wouldn’t validate me–only Jesus could.
Although writing short stories and poetry was my thing, I had no intention whatsoever to become a writer. Ha! My goals were to be a scientist and a business owner. Fast-forward to 2009, I began my first blog and realized there was something more to it than personal healing. I discovered my voice carries weight with the ability to help others.
Now, I’ve embraced all that God has called me–a writer of blog posts, a minister of the Gospel, and, most importantly, His daughter.
I’m willing to share God’s story of grace and relentless love. I know from a personal stance the power of redemption. Because of His matchless love towards me, I will forever give Him my best yes. When pleasing the Father becomes your motivation, you’ll never dull your shine for Christ again.
Here’s my beautiful family, currently comprised of my first-class, magnificent, stellar husband—also, my photographer—Falando,
our super-intelligent firstborn prince, DeAndrè,
and our youngest, amazing prince, Cailen.
Thank you for journeying with me, let’s win in this together!
