Jewel Adams is a wife, the mother of eight children, and a grandmother. She has been writing inspirational romance for over twenty years and has over forty published works. She is an inspirational and motivational speaker to both youth and adult audiences. 


Always one to share a message of God’s love through her stories, Jewel is a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She loves the Lord with all her heart and has experienced many blessings and miracles in her life because of that love, and she is secure in the knowledge of God’s love for her and all men. In her spare time, you can find Jewel curled up with a good book and a healthy stash of orange Tic Tacs. She and her family reside in Utah. 


Mary Magdalene: You think you know me. You may think you know my story. But you don’t. There have been many things said about me, about my life–things that have been taught and touted as truth, lies that have been received and then retaught as fact. It is a human weakness to accept writings of antiquity with assured certainty, never questioning the validity of said writings. As a result, the tangled web that is woven ensnares the mind and heart, leaving no room for question. Nor room for God’s answers.


To the world, my life is a mystery–a fabricated one, but a mystery, nonetheless. Only a precious enlightened few know my heart. And only they possess the gift of discernment to know what is real. As for the rest, allow me to humbly set the record straight. Some hearts may not be open to my words. But no matter. Hidden truths will always be brought to light. And my story has been suppressed long enough.


"Mary Magdalene: Beloved of the Bridegroom is a sweet novella that follows a possible life path of one of the bravest heroines of the Bible. Mary Magdalene is heroic and courageous, learning and growing through the course of this tender love story." ~Loralee Evans, author


This is not the only book that Jewel Adams has written about a noble female character from the Bible. After much research, she wrote a book called: Women of Wisdom: Courage and Virtue. This book is about the lives of four women whom she admired: Eve, Ruth, Esther, and Mary... the mother of the Savior. 


When asked why she wrote this book, Jewel said, “These four holy women have greatly influenced my own life, and thoughts of their examples touch me so much, I can hardly find the words to express my feelings. Each of them owns a special place in my heart, and I don’t even know where to begin to share it. This small booklet contains personal, spiritual thoughts about four righteous women in the Bible…why I love them, and how they touched my life.


Jewel has many fans. One of her readers wrote: “Please never cease to bless us with your amazing stories, full of true love and wisdom." - Janel, a fan

Your story of Mary Magdalene I am sure is a good one. A friend of mine encouraged me to write a story about her as well. I self-published a book, Kindle and print about her, part fiction and part nonfiction. I look forward to reading yours and I am sure will be better than mine. If you are interested in mine I can gift one to you via Amazon. Linda will tell you of one she bought from me about The Shunammite Woman, a character I dearly love.
