Episode Description

Today, I welcome my beautiful and inspirational guest Jocelyn J Jones, to the podcast. Jocelyn is an author, speaker, and entrepreneur. She received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Iowa in journalism. After receiving her B.A., Jocelyn worked for channel 20, WYCC. She left the television industry to work at the ARK of St. Sabina, where she served for eleven years; eight of which were in the role of Executive Director. While working at the ARK, Jocelyn earned her master’s degree from the University of Chicago in social work.

After accepting her call to ministry, she went on to complete her master’s degree in theological studies from McCormick Theological Seminary. Jocelyn is an ordained minister and the founder of Faith on the Journey, a company committed to showing the world that God’s word has the power to heal. She is the author of the book, Breaking the Power of the Mask, and a training facilitator with the Trauma Healing Institute.

In this podcast conversation, we talk about how to help traumatized communities, how to keep the faith, how to release dark emotions by practicing forgiveness, and how her organization Faith on the Journey helps churches and lay leaders become more trauma informed. It has been my pleasure to have Jocelyn join me, and I know, my listeners, that you will enjoy the episode. Please, head to Amazon or Takealot at the link and get your copy of my E-book or paperback book edition, Ray of Light, and please leave me a rating and review. It would mean the world to me.

Marlene McConnell

Marlene McConnell is an author, podcast host, self-love teacher and trauma survivor. She believes that trauma recovery is accessible to everyone, and that it starts with the acknowledgement that something has happened to you combined with a willingness to heal. McConnell’s book and podcast was inspired by the realization that she touched many lives by sharing her story at a support group. Her message of hope not only resonated with the survivors, but also with the family members and friends who supported them at the group sessions. Marlene is also an attorney who holds B.Proc, LLB and LLM law degrees. She loves travel, Pilates, nature, learning new languages, and good food.
