According to the Webster’s 1828 dictionary, the word abundant means “plentiful; in great quantity; fully sufficient; as an abundant supply. In scripture, abounding; having in great quantity; overflowing with.”
That definitely describes my life! Wherever I look, there is abundance. Abundant family. Abundant chaos. Abundant blessings. Abundant bills. Abundant provision. Abundant love. Abundant “issues”. It’s all there. And I strive to live my abundant life joyfully. It’s not always easy and I don’t always succeed at being joyful, but I know that God is working in me to make me more like Him (and if I’d get out of the way, He’d be able to work so much faster!)

Hi there! I’m Jacque. A pastor’s wife of 28 years. A mom of 4 amazing kids – Mark (26), Nathan (25), Madison (23), and Emma (13). Mother-in-love to Brittani and Kim. (And soon-to-be mother-in-love to Larry). Gigi to Halie (18), Bryce (3), and Emery (born September 2017).
My husband, Duane (or PD as pretty much everyone calls him), and I are Florida transplants serving a church in a small town in Middle Tennessee. I love the ministry life! (So much so that I started a podcast just for pastors’ wives.) I homeschooled all my kids, but now it’s just Emma and me!
I am passionate about encouraging women to grab hold of the abundant life that Jesus promised. I love seeing women discover their identity and purpose in Him.
In my “spare” time, I enjoy reading, crafting, hiking, geocaching, and photography.
