Hello sweet friend!
I’m a Texas writer and speaker who shares common-sense grace for the try-hard girl. I love my people, books, podcasts, and sprinkles.
I’m the writer behind jillemccormick.com because I’m tricky that way! The blog is designed to help try-hard girls who crave hope in the form of how-to.
I grew up in the suburbs of Houston, graduated from Texas A&M with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism, and have had a crazy-awesome career path. I’ve worked in professional sports with the Houston Astros Baseball Club, higher education at the University of Arkansas – Fort Smith, trucking with ABF Freight, health care at Mercy, church ministry at our home church, and now writing words on the internet!
I married my high school sweetheart Ryan in 1999, and I’ll tell you that I got the better end of that deal. We have two daughters born 18 months apart. Most days you’ll find me with a book in my hand and earbuds in my ears listening to one of 80 bazillion podcasts that I follow. I start and end every day with sprinkles: power oatmeal with sprinkles in the morning and ice-cream-made-from-bananas at night.
I’m a woman who grew up memorizing verses in AWANA, who loves the training + teaching found in Bible Study Fellowship, and who served as her church’s children’s pastor for two years. Loving God, serving Him, knowing Him, enjoying Him and sharing Him are my highest priorities and privilege.
Jill’s statement of faith
I believe that God is displayed in three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
I believe that Jesus is the one and only Son of God, born of a virgin, fully-God and fully-man, who lived, was crucified, died, and was buried the third day according to the Scriptures.
I believe that Jesus rose again.
I believe that salvation is found in Christ alone, a gift of mercy and grace, not based on merit or performance.
I believe that the Bible is God’s inerrant, infallible, and inspired word of God and is useful for teaching, training, rebuking, and correcting.
I believe that every single person made was created in the image of God.
I believe that Jesus loves you like crazy.
