"Jealous of the Angels," was written for my dad.  He passed away in a tragic car accident when I was ten years old.  Music and songwriting became the only forms of therapy that truly allowed me to express my emotions.  I have written multiple songs on this subject, but it wasn't until fourteen years after his death that we (cowriters Zach Runquist and Jimmy Fortune) created something that represented everything I felt.  I remember saying that night that my one wish was to know that he was smiling down on me and that he was proud of me.  That night I prayed.  I prayed every night for two months that God would give me some sort of sign that my dad was smiling down on me.  I didn't tell anyone what I was praying for, but I was believing God for a selfish answer.  On Christmas Eve that year, my best friend in the world, who has been with me through everything, called me from Oregon at 7:15 in the morning to tell me about a dream she had had the night before.  She said my dad was in her dream and said, "Please tell Jenn I'm so proud of her and that I'm at every one of her shows.I share this story whenever I perform "Jealous of the Angels."  It is a huge part of my testimony.  As I began sharing it inspired others to tell me there stories.  Soon I was receiving emails and facebook messages from strangers telling me their intimate stories about loss and how much my song had spoken to them. The stories have not only been an affirmation that God is at work through the song, but they are healing and comforting to me as well.
