Yvonne Jones

I am at heart, a LIFEguard: “big” sister, mama, grandmother, aunt, friend, swimming coach, lifeguard trainer, and registered nurse. I am in the business of alleviating fear through education and lots of hand holding. As a swimming instructor, I have taught people of all ages to overcome fear of the water and I marvel as fear gives way to fearlessness, as panic turns to pure joy, as tears dissolve into giggles of glee, and pennies retrieved from the bottom of the abyss become trophies. As a nurse, I have been privileged to walk up to Heaven’s gate as patients and family are welcomed home, witnessed the miracle of birth, helped mend broken hearts, and cared for the elderly as they wait.

Scriptures number one admonition is “fear not.” Question is HOW??? The Word becomes our swimming instructor and can help us learn to “tread water til Jesus comes.” Something my students often thought I was going to make them do!

So welcome to my pool! Jump in the cool water. Let it refresh your soul and feel the unseen hands of the Master Lifeguard lift you up and out of the deep water. Who knows, you just might even walk on water!

    All of you are doing an amazing job of putting yourselves and your knowledge on this blog. I have read some, but not all. I do plan however to continue reading your (in its entirety) blog. Thanks for sharing. People associate with personal stories, in my opinion, more than just quoting because they are able to relate your stories to things in their lives. Hope this is helpful. Love you all and look forward to continuing to be blessed by your words
