About the Author
Deaconess Jill Nowell grew up in Episcopal Churches in Midland, Michigan and Lake Jackson, Texas. After earning a degree in Finance/Economics, she discovered teaching as a passion and returned to college to earn an English degree and certification as a Secondary School teacher. After spending time in corporate training curriculum development and administration with Sylvan Learning Systems, Texas Instruments, and Citibank, she met and married the son of a Baptist preacher; she and Mike spent the first decade of their lives together growing their family by three sons. During that time, they attended a Baptist church but moved to the Episcopal Church in 2005, where she served as interim Children’s Minister. In 2009, the family joined Church of the Holy Communion, where Jill pursued roles in women’s and children’s ministry, culminating in her call to become a Deaconess in 2016. After being set-apart on Mother’s Day 2019, she has continued teaching catechesis, children’s chapel, Sunday School, Financial Peace University, speaking at various women’s events and workshops, and leading the Altar Guild. She continues to pursue a M.A. in Religion, Deaconess Studies at Cranmer Theological House and is honored to write the 2020-2021 devotional for the women of the REC.
