Gracie Jackson is a native of Lake Charles, Louisiana, where she currently resides with her husband. Gracie grew up in Lake Charles, Louisiana, graduating from Marion High School, in 1975. Gracie and her husband have 7 children and 8 grandchildren. 

Gracie is a devout believer in the Word and works of Jesus Christ.  Growing up, Gracie always loved "playing church" and school as she was the choir, the preacher, and the teacher to her baby doll students.

However, a new walk of life has given Gracie a brand-new outlook in living for God that includes holiness every day. She no longer plays church, but is serious, sold out, and fully committed to Jesus Christ.

For the past 15 years, Gracie Jackson has lived victoriously with visual impairment. Since receiving her blind skills training, Mrs. Jackson has provided and provides service to individuals with disabilities. This has opened the door to her hands and her heart to give and serve individuals who are blind. Gracie also serves other persons with disabilities as service to the Most High God with a zeal and passion that only comes from her personal relationship with Him.   

Not to minimize education, but maximize her love for God, caused Gracie to end her college pursuit and follow God's call on her life. 

As Gracie Jackson has followed the voice of God and the call on her life, her pursuit for the things of God has been a journey she never knew she would experience. Because of her obedience, Gracie is now completing her first book project entitled “Remember Jesus: The Main Ingredient”. So in addition to being a daughter of the Most High God, a wife, a mother, a grandmother, an advocate for individuals with disabilities with an emphasis on those who are blind, Mrs. Jackson will soon be a best-selling author, speaker, writer, and advocate.
