About the author
Ms. Jacqueline Vann S.T., R.N., was born and raised in a typical Minnesota family with a working father and stay-at-home mom. Her life was fairly normal and uneventful until she married Roger Vann who eventually became co-pastor of Jesus People Church—one of the largest churches in the nation—and an evangelist around the world. Roger and Jackie enjoyed the success that comes as the result of a thriving ministry from 1970 through 1986 until it all unraveled. She overcame divorce, abandonment, homelessness, financial ruin, and family crisis as she cleaved to God for her strength. Jackie’s heart is to help others discover who God truly is and find hope in any situation that seems hopeless.
