Biography

Jennifer-jerniganJenifer Jernigan loves her sisters in Christ with a compassion and faithfulness that inspires others to drop to their knees, to dig deeper in God’s Word, and to see their own potential through Jesus Christ in new and exciting ways. She is encouraging. She is thought-provoking. She is sincere. Above all, her love for the Lord is evident; her teaching of the text is inspiring; and her devotion to the Truth is paramount.

Jenifer graduated from The Baptist College of Florida (formerly Florida Baptist Theological College) in 2000 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Christian Counseling.

Although she was saved at the age of seven and felt God’s call into full-time service for Him around age thirteen, Jenifer spent many years “wandering aimlessly through the wilderness”. After her many years of roaming, God got a hold of her heart and the two of them have been inseparable since.

An avid student of the Word, Jenifer spends much of her time teaching and writing Bible studies. Her passion is to share God’s message of unconditional love, mercy, grace, and forgiveness with ladies of all ages. Jenifer is privileged to be the Faith Applied columnist for Exemplify Online an online Christian women’s magazine. She also writes for and is co-owner of the Internet Cafe your online daily dose of encouragement from the Word.

Since 2003 Jenifer has been involved in various ministries leading others to know their Savior more. She has been blessed to teach and mentor 7th grade girls, write various Bible Studies for the middle school student ministry at her home church, speak to women’s groups of various ages, plan and help lead women’s retreats, and write women’s Bible Studies. Over the past several years Jenifer has been heavily involved in women’s ministry.

In 2007 Jenifer began blogging as a simple pastime; a place where she could share her love for Jesus with others and journal her everyday happenings. That “simple” blog has now turned into a tremendous ministry outlet both on the Internet and in her own personal life.

In 2009 she began the first In His Word Bible Study group. Meeting in the home of a precious lady, Jenifer began teaching women how they can personally and intimately know God, how to dig in His Word on their own, and leading them to flesh out their faith through various community service projects and their local church.

Jenifer is married to the love of her life, Chris, and the couple has three beautiful children: Hannah, Will, and Lydia. They make their home in North Carolina.

Jenifer and Chris have founded By His Grace & In His Word Ministries where the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is boldly and unashamedly proclaimed, where His grace is lived out, and where His life-changing Word is taught with passion.
