ANGIE RANSOME-JONES

“Path to Peace”

 

Angie Ransome-Jones is no stranger to loss.  In 2002,she lost her mother to cancer after 2 years of watching the gradual deterioration of he life.   For years following, she describes each Mother’s Day as feeling similar to a “pap smear….cold, dreadful and uncomfortable, and almost like a violation.”

Fast forward 11 years later, Jones lost her father.  This time, her loss was sudden and unexpected.  It sent her into a whirlwind of emotions, transformation, and eventually peace, which she chronicles in her book “Path to Peace, A Guide to Managing Loss After Losing a Loved One.”

In the process of laying her father to rest and settling his earthly affairs,Jonesquickly realized there was much more to death than dying.  As a result, she has madeit her missionand her ministryto educateaudiences everywhere about what she refers to as “the process.”  In a world of Go Fund Me accounts and family members left to pick up the pieces(emotionally and financially)long after their loved ones have been laid to rest,  Jones is putting people on notice, that pre-planning is essential and anything short of that is irresponsible!  

Since publishing Path to Peace in August of last year, Jones has been invited to share her message from Houston to Little Rock,and will be a featured author at the 2016 National Black Book Club Conference (NBCC) in Atlanta, Georgia, in July.  Herbook was also chosen as “A Good Read” in the Arkansas Times 2015 Holiday Gift Guide and is quickly climbing the Amazon list of bestsellers.   When asked about her plans to write a second book, Jones snickers a bit and responds, “…no plans for a second book at this time, but Idoplan to keep publishing future editions of Path to Peace until Ifeelit is complete.”

When Jones is not out sharing her message of turning pain into purpose, she works as a banking Vice President andMarketingProject Manager.  She also serves as Founder & President of Magnifying our Mothers (M.O.M.), which she founded in 2010 in memory of herlatemother.  She is an avid community volunteer, a proud member of Alpha Kappa Sorority, Incorporated  and afreelanceyoga instructor.  Jonesis married with two sons and lives in Texas.
