Join us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! with J. Jackson of the parody band ApologetiX.
Influenced by a steady diet of Mad Magazine, Wacky Packages, novelty records, and comic books, ApologetiX lead singer and lyricist J. Jackson started writing parodies as a kid. He became a born-again Christian in January 1988, and his newfound interest in the Bible had a profound influence on his parodies.
A journalism major in college, J. worked in the public relations field before going full-time with ApologetiX. He started getting together with some other like-minded Christian musicians in 1990, and this loose-knit group eventually played its first concert as ApologetiX on March 27, 1992.
Like many other rock and rollers, J. is surrounded by beautiful women—his wife, Lisa, and four daughters, Janna, Heather, Kelly, and Natalie. They also have a dog (Skippy), three mice (Gracie, Cookie, and Chocolate), and a fish (Diamond). They make their home in Pittsburgh, PA.

Jennie Phillips hails from Monroe, Louisiana and has two children, Christopher Lance and Alicia Michelle. In the early 80s, she sought a serious relationship with the Lord and in 1988 the Holy Spirit filled her at a Frederick K. C. Price crusade in New Orleans, LA.
In January of 2005, Jennie was led to move to Asheville, NC. “The crazy part about this,” she says, “I didn’t know anyone there, have a place to live, or a job to support me.” But God prepared her with these words, "I have gone before you and prepared the way." She came to a women's Bible study at the Billy Graham Training Center at the Cove and began volunteering shortly afterward. She now works part-time as a hostess at this special place.

Jean Ann Williams lost her twenty-five year old son Joshua to suicide on March 16, 2004. The loss has been horrific, but God has been merciful. Jean learned through the grieving process God does not forsake his Children, even when they have the worst attitude possible and are in tremendous agony. Jean understands this is an important way we grow closer to Lord God: through not letting go of Him in our suffering.
So profound was Jean Ann’s experience with a loving God, she decided to create a blog to share what God had done for her. She hoped to help other mothers who may be going through a journey of loss. In 2009, the Love Truth: Hope After Suicide site became a reality.
Jean Ann is a multi-published author through periodicals and book anthologies.
