JB Price earned an undergraduate degree from Carson Newman College and a master’s from Middle Tennessee State University. She has been a public school teacher, a home school educator focusing on autism, dyslexia and ADHD and a friend to women in crisis for thirty plus years.
Growing up in the hills of East Tennessee in a culture rich in storytelling and having a Dad who loved to spin a tale led to a fascination for appealing yarns and engaging stories at an early age. Writing snippets for family and friends and using stories to teach became second nature.
Writing a book, however, had never been a dream or consideration. So the birth of this book was quite unexpected.
JB was scheduled to lead a retreat in the fall of 2013 with the theme of love and intimacy. While struggling with an effective way to not only teach, but also engage the hearts of the ladies, a plot began to unfold. This book resulted.
God has used the story and the work involved in writing and publishing to teach and engage the writer’s own heart regarding God’s love and desire for intimacy. One such lesson involved the parking lot pen story which is an adaptation of an event that happened to the writer and her granddaughter as she was shopping for “treasures” for the cover shoot.
JB and her husband of forty-nine plus years live on a small farm in Rutherford County, Tennessee.
