About Anika Jones

I have been changed and continue to go through a spiritual metamorphosis. Why & How you ask? I fell in love with Jesus! My life with Him has been absolutely fulfilling, at times nail biting, puzzling, joy filled, tear dropping, & absolutely positively WORTHWHILE! I married the handsome man I met at a bus stop over 13 years ago and together we have six energetic children. It is my desire to share what I am learning as I walk with Jesus in hopes that it would have an eternal impact on those who read it!
