Jessica Jemmott is an alumna of Liberty University. She has received both a BS in psychology and sociology and an MA in professional counseling, and her desire is to promote psychological, physical, and spiritual health and awareness amongst adolescents, women, and men.
Fifteen years ago, Jessica received a vision from the Lord to create a multifaceted counseling center/café named The Lamp (a.k.a. The Chocolate Lamp) to create an atmosphere for the community that provides services for the needs and desires of all who enter through the doors, a space for refuge from crisis and the happenings of daily life. It is a community counseling center/café that provides expressive art therapies while meeting needs holistically—body, mind, and spirit. It promotes a healthy and safe environment for the self and the community while encouraging unity among cultural divides.
As she works to bring that vision to life, she is currently being prepared for the ministry facet through Simply Redeemed.
Whether through counseling, cooking/baking, expressive arts, sharing thoughts and experiences through written form, and/or ministry, everything that the Lord equips Jessica with to engage with others starts and ends with love—through the expression of the love of Christ.
“Wife, mother (of three), worshiper, entrepreneur, teacher, counselor, sister, friend, daughter, lover, fighter, visionary, prayer warrior, author, woman—whatever the title on whatever day, I am totally loving the woman that I am! As I stand under the covering of the Lord and alongside my husband, I am gaining confidence in the full acceptance of me! I’m no longer the people pleaser I once was, no longer seeking acceptance of others, no longer in bondage of the perceptions of others. My identity is in him who has created me as I am, his prized possession.”
