Ashley L. Jones received her M.A. in Biblical Studies so she could learn how to dig deeper into God’s Word. She uses her blog, BigSisterKnows.com, to encourage others to see God as alive and relevant to their everyday lives. She brings this same passion to her other projects, from children’s books to Girls with Gusto, a book for young women on how to navigate the eight major steps of the spiritual journey. Ashley lives in Tallahassee with her patient husband Robby, their curious cats Penelope and Larry, and hungry hen Lula Bell. She is represented by the Hartline Literary Agency.
