Jinger and Jessica Lord are a mother and daughter pair whom I have watched and admired first hand. They share a closeness that is often not present between a mom and her 19 year old daughter.  Jinger is on staff at my church in charge of our children’s and family ministries.  She is highly organized and administrative with a passion for excellence and the discipleship of children and parents.
