Are you tired of striving? Growing weary of trying to become a better version of yourself? Dismayed at trying new rhythms and routines, only to fall back into the same old – same old, year after year?
21 Days of Agreement is a free online guide you can download when you subscribe for Jess’ newsletter. It’s based on Philippians 3:12 and the truth that we can take hold of the character and qualities that Jesus has taken hold of for us – which are abundant and overflowing. It’s a Biblically-based guide to help you quit trying to become better and start agreeing with who He’s made you to be.

Every week I meet with women over the phone and in person who are seeking to be obedient to what God has called them to. I meet with women in ministry, women in business, women who are aspiring writers or teachers, and those gals who have just begun to dream about what God has for them.

Each week Jess sends out some No Filter thoughts via email. Words, questions, and encouragement to help you step into the light and live truthful in community with God and others.

Jess has had the joy of publishing a few books over the past few years, with more coming soon!
All books published with Zondervan.
In fall of 2014, my husband Nick and I planted Bright City Church. We lead the church here in Charleston, SC and it’s one of the hardest and most fruitful parts of our life.
I love talking food, health, exercise, and body image on my My Freedom Bell instagram account. Would love to see you over there!
In the fall of 2018, I’ll be releasing a video curriculum called “Six Steps to Start”. It will be a self-paced course with three different tracks: one for women in ministry, one for women in business, one for women who’d love to pursue publishing.
Nick and I are excited to start meeting with couples who are in the beginning stages of praying through church planting. We find that we really wish we’d had a safe place to process in those early days, not just separately - but together as a couple.
If that’s something you’re interested in - email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What ages are the Connolly kids?
Our kids range from 11 to 5! The first three are irish triplets and are one year apart each.
Where is your bible from?
Sadly, I got my Bible at a small Christian bookstore years ago and since then - I haven’t been able to find one like it. It’s an NIV wide margin!

I'm about to have two (or three) kids super close together, any advice?
First of all, it's going to be great. You are about to build a really sweet and intimate family culture. You're going to lean on each other and laugh a whole, whole lot. My biggest regret during the season I had three kids under three in is that I didn't give myself more grace. Take a promise from a veteran and believe me when I say that God has picked you to be the mama to these kids for a reason and He will equip you with all you need. Ask for help when you need it, even if it's often. Find a good church if you don't have one and find an older mom to encourage you. Take little pockets of rest and time to feel inspired wherever you can. Read the Bible. God is for you. It's often said and very true - these days are going to fly by.
How did you start All Good Things Collective?
Very unprofessionally and haphazardly! A friend encouraged me to start selling my prints and at that time - I wasn't even sure where or how to print them. Sometimes you just have to try that crazy idea and see what happens.
Can Jessi come speak at our event/conference?
We'd love to hear more about it! Will you fill out the form on our speaking page? Thanks!
I'm visiting Charleston soon, anywhere you suggest going?
Yay, Charleston! You're going to love it! You’ve got to hit the following spots: The Harbinger Cafe, Xiao Bao Biscuit, Leon’s, Sullivan’s Island, Basic Kitchen, Obstinate Daughter, and Minero.
Can I stop by the All Good Things Collective shop and visit?
Please! I’m not there all day every day, but check the All Good Things website for more info on our open times.
Can I send you something from my business/company/shop?
I'd be crazy blessed by that, thank you! I can't promise to blog or share it on social media. Please email email@example.com to get our PO Box address.
My husband is interested in or praying about planting a church. How can I help him?
Sit beside him and let him tell you his crazy dreams. Nick and I offer couples coaching calls for men and women at the very beginning stage of praying through church planting. We’d love to meet with you!
Can I ask you a few questions about my business or ministry idea?
Please do! I offer coaching sessions here. Unfortunately at this time I can't do a lot of business coaching outside of those blocks.
Got another question? Email firstname.lastname@example.org!
