Kandace Jones is the founder of Living in the Light, an organization dedicated to supporting individuals in releasing stress and returning to the peace that lies within. Her messages of inspiration reach tens of thousands across over 20 countries daily via her Living in the Light blog and Facebook page.
In 2012, Kandace had a profound spiritual awakening which inspired her to write From Stress to Peace: An Intimate Journal on the Journey from Living in Darkness to Living in the Light, and expand her life’s work to assisting others in achieving and sustaining inner peace. As a Certified Spiritual Life Coach, Reiki practitioner, teacher of A Course in Miracles, and lover of spiritual wisdom, her passion for assisting others on the spiritual path is palpable. As a former saleswoman and marketer, she has a knack for sharing messages with others and inspiring them to action. Her professional career began in marketing with Procter & Gamble, Time Warner, and Forbes Magazine.
She also has a tremendous passion for youth development, which led her to transition her career from business to education. She has a certification in youth development, and has overseen the operations of after-school programs in over 200 schools. She also co-founded a non-profit supporting the expansion of youth social entrepreneurship, study-abroad, and cross-cultural exchange throughout the African Diaspora. She was later appointed to a position in the Obama Administration where she supported reform efforts aimed at dramatically improving the nation’s lowest-performing schools.
Despite this career success, Kandace had in inner struggle that ultimately drove her to hit rock bottom. Now on the other side of the pain, she is grateful for the experience being used not only to move her From Stress to Peace, but to inspire the same shift in thousands of others.
Kandace lives in Washington, DC with her husband and two young sons. She loves to travel, and has visited over 25 countries. You can find her online on Facebook at www.facebook.com/livinginthelight, Twitter at www.twitter.com/queenkandace, or on her blog at www.livinginthelight.com.
