All About Grace

    About Jamie
    “No one after lighting a lamp covers it with a jar or puts it under a bed, but puts on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light.”

    As a life-long student of management principles, I enjoy finding those sparks that bring light to a dark situation. It is my hope that this “lampstand” will provide you a bit of light.

    With a diverse background in media, corporate communications, and public sector employee training, I assist ministries in keeping their operation true to their vision, mission and goals.
