SPEAKER - AUTHOR - COACH
WHO I AM
They said I should say something like, "Christene Jackson, M. Ed. is on a mission to change the world."
They were right....that is my mission! A big goal? YES! You better believe it. But, nothing great ever happened from dreaming small!
I am a fierce advocate for community inclusion, respect, and support of individuals with disabilities and their families. As a former special education teacher, special education administrator and parent of a child, now adult, with significant special needs, I am knowledgeable and a determined author, speaker, coach and voice for the voiceless.
What has my experience in the world of advocacy and disability inclusion taught me?
It has taught me everything about life.
--It has taught me the importance of loving ourselves.-
-It has taught me that change is possible.
-It has taught me that you don't have to live in a state or anger.
-It has taught me that we can be and do better with our lives.
-It has taught me each and every one of us has a gift and a passion.
-It has taught me that each of us has a role to play in the world.
-It has taught me that each of us has the power to influence the world.
“You are an intricate thread to the tapestry of this world. While small, you are mighty. Without you, the tapestry would not be complete. You were created with purpose and if your purpose is not fulfilled, the world will not be as it should. Find the thing that makes your heart beat a bit faster and follow that until you sing the joyous melody that is in your soul.”
And, it's also taught me that we all need someone in our lives to guide us, support us and help us discover the God given gifts we hold inside.
That's what I do...
Finding Faith through Fury
I am a mom, an entrepreneur, an educator and follower of Christ, not necessarily in that order. I share a message of our responsibility to live the best life we can, regardless of our current situation. My transition back to Christ, through so much anger, was a journey of a thousand miles. I didn't know it at that time, but my journey was a gift, a blessing. This path led me to an enlightenment of how we should live and lead, an enlightenment of how we can go out and impact the world.
My message and my upcoming book, with the same title, shares my journey from anger and denial of God's existence to a faith filled life. I know that sometimes it's hard for Christ followers to grow in their relationship with God because they have shame over questioning their own faith. So, often people walk go through the motions and come to church but hide from the real conversations because they are ashamed. I know this because I was there. In my message, Finding Faith through Fury, I share my journey from anger and denial to reconnecting with my faith and growing my relationship with God.
