Ms. Jones’s mission with Divine Beginnings is to glorify God by spreading HIS word through his divine little children.

Jacqueline envisioned her unique, Christian-themed product line nearly 13 years ago shortly after the birth of her first son. She recognized an absence of such products in the marketplace – and over the years, leveraged her personal strength, 20 plus years of professional experience in communications, and unwavering Christian values and beliefs to develop her brand of retail items. “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.” She recently teamed up with a talented designer to create a multi-cultural product line of custom-themed apparel and products for infants, toddlers and small children that features Biblical scriptures, spiritual symbolism and inspirational messages. All are available in both English and Spanish. “I’m excited about blending my love of children with my passion for spreading God’s word,” says Ms. Jones. “Proverbs 22:6 instructs us to "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it… “Divine Beginnings makes it easy to introduce Biblical values to little ones early in life by adorning them with God’s word for them.” Products currently available through the Divine Beginnings’ online store include t-shirts, baby gowns and baby bibs. This year, the company will be introduce tote bags, one-piece garments, customizable baby caps and blankets. Jacqueline plans to expand her product line to Christian-themed retailers, traditional retail stores, Christian schools and churches in the near future.
