Cecelia Jackson is chief editor for Four Craftsmen Publishing, a Bible study teacher, and writes studies intended to draw Christians closer to their Lord.
She was born in Portland, Oregon,and grew up in a machine shop where her father pioneered small model airplane engines. She graduated from high school in Milwaukie, Oregon.
New adventures started when she attended Pomona College in Claremont, California. There she met a future newspaper editor, Martin Jackson, and later married him. They traveled from newspaper to newspaper in the west, spent time with the Army, and tried their own businesses.
She came to know Jesus Christ in a church in Hemet, California, and became very active in bringing renewal to the churches there and later in Arizona. She was an officer in local Women's Aglow chapters for many years.
CeCe learned book editing by doing it. This involved typing a manuscript over and over at first, a task now greatly simplified in her computer.
She learned the Bible through intensive personal study, by preparing and leading studies for others, and by applying it to her own household and mothering of three children. CeCe is also a spiritual director for individual Christians. Her leaflet series of Bible studies grew out of Sunday school lessons and teaching for small groups. She loves writing and teaching about the Bible. She co-authored Radical Grace for Finances with Martin, and has now combined and revised older studies into Open Your Bible NOW!
