Jennifer Smith’s youth was filled with abuse, bitterness, addiction, and violence that led her to spend eleven years in prison. During her incarceration she came to know her Savior and was transformed by God’s Word. Now, she serves as a volunteer denominational chaplain at the McPherson prison where she was once incarcerated—sharing the hope of the gospel to women in prison. Jennifer has experienced transitioning from prison to the free-world and now ministers to women making that transition, through the Cornerstone Transition Home in Newport, Arkansas.
Jennifer is a speaker for Awakening Compassion for the Incarcerated.
