Destin beach, Florida
What is your happy place? Mine is the beach. Specifically, Destin beach, Florida. I’ve been praying for over three years to travel there. It is the setting for the first fiction book that I wrote, Storm Tossed. The Destin beach is gorgeous with soft, white sand and clear, blue-green water.
I recently went there for a week, staying in a beautiful Air BnB. It was an amazing, fun time. I give Jesus Christ all the glory for getting me there. I’m so thankful to my husband Ray for his support for me to do this, and for his, my daughters Heather’s and Leah’s, my sister Maria’s and my intercessors’ prayers for me as I was traveling.
I plan to do some blogging about it here at BethJones.net about the trip, but meanwhile you can watch my vlogs on my YouTube channel by clicking here.
Stay tuned for more of them soon!

I haven’t been blogging lately. Just doing life stuff. So…I thought I’d give you an update of what’s been going on this year. First, about writing.
Part of my story is in a chapter of my writing coaches CJ Hitz and Shelley Hitz’s book, Kingdom Writers. I helped to promote it. You can find the book here, available on Amazon. It is a great book!
I’m one of the featured alumni panelist speakers for Shelley’s upcoming Kingdom Writers conference on Tuesday, September 13, 2022, at 11 a.m. eastern time, so stay tuned for more news about that!
Each alumni speaker will only speak for a few minutes, but this is such an honor that Shelley asked me to do this! This edition of the conference is dedicated to helping authors build their platform and sell more books through collaborations
If you need a speaker for your women’s conference, retreat, online event, or podcast, or know an event planner who does, please contact me here. I love encouraging women and giving them the hope of Jesus Christ!
I’ve also been writing a Vella fiction short story called She Won. It’s about a recent widow and mom of 4 grown children, Norah Wellington, who goes to the convenience store every day to buy a coffee, a chocolate doughnut with colored sprinkles, and a lottery ticket. One day she wins the jackpot.
She winds up moving to Destin beach, Florida, the place of her dreams. She has heard that winning the lottery can be a curse instead of a blessing. It also changes people–for the worst! What will Norah do with the money?
Me with my chips and salsa fix
My family and my friends know that I LOVE chips and salsa ~ it’s an addiction! I also love Mexican food, encouraging people to fulfill their purpose and to dream big dreams!
I have a quote that I often say, “Dream big because we serve a big God!”
What is your big dream? You and I are in good company as dreamers with Joseph the Dreamer in the Bible. It’s one of my favorite stories, and I relate a lot to Joseph!
You have probably heard of the story of Joseph, but if you haven’t, it’s found in Genesis Chapters 37 – 50.
I’m going to speak about Joseph and why you haven’t seen your dream come to pass yet (and the #1 ingredient for seeing it come true!) at my upcoming live and virtual event, Mex and Chillaxing: Grab your dream & a taco!
