Founder and Keynote Speaker
Jessie Seneca is the founder of More of Him Ministries and The Real mom Conference. Jessie lives in Bethlehem, PA with her husband, John of 36 years. They have two daughters, Lauren and Sarah and two wonderful sons-in-law. And now add on three grandsons, Luke, Connor, and Logan (life is full!). Her message inspires women to move into a whole-hearted lifestyle, one devoted fully to God. Jessie’s passion and wisdom is to use the gifts God has given her to speak into the lives of her listeners and readers through her Bible studies and books. While writing her book, Raising Girls, Diaper to Diamond, she had one question at the forefront of her mind, “What do I wish I could tell the younger me?” She doesn’t claim to have all the answers and like most of us, has made mistakes along the way, but her continued desire has been to develop girls into responsible young adults while nurturing a deep friendship with her own daughters. Most days you can find Jessie walking her two furry friends, Murphy and Baxter or playing with her grandsons.
