Jacqueline D. Jones selected for her outstanding leadership and commitment within her profession

I’m pleased to welcome Jacqueline into this exceptional group of professional women. I applaud her for using her expertise to build a successful business enterprise.

The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Jacqueline D. Jones as a 2015-2016 inductee into its VIP Professional Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in business. NAPW is the nation’s leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting 850,000 members and over 200 operating Local Chapters.

“I’m pleased to welcome Jacqueline into this exceptional group of professional women,” said NAPW President Star Jones. “I applaud her for using her expertise to build a successful business enterprise.”

The idea for Divine Beginnings® began nearly 13 years ago, after Ms. Jones gave birth to her first son. “Like many new moms, I looked forward to building my baby’s wardrobe and decorating his nursery. I searched everywhere for clothing and items with inspirational and faith-based themes, but was unable to find anything to my liking,” she says. “One night, while rocking my son to sleep, I had a surreal vision, and the name ‘Divine Beginnings’ just came to me. I decided then I would one day create my own line of Christian-themed products for children.”

Recognizing a need to fill a void in the marketplace, Ms. Jones is now ready to make her dream a reality. She’s teamed up with a talented designer to create a unique multi-cultural product line of custom-designed clothing and items for infants, toddlers and small children. Divine Beginnings® products feature Biblical scriptures, spiritual symbolism and inspirational messages, and are available in both English and Spanish. Products are currently available through the Divine Beginnings® online store, but Ms. Jones hopes to expand to Christian-themed retailers, traditional retail stores, Christian schools and churches in the near future.

“I’m excited about blending my love of children with my passion for spreading God’s word,” says Ms. Jones, who leveraged her personal strength, 20 plus years of professional experience and unwavering Christian values and beliefs to start the business. “Divine Beginnings® is all about uplifting children through positive affirmation and reinforcing how special they are to God and to this world. After all, ‘children are a gift from God.’ (Psalms 127:3). We should celebrate that daily!”
