Many years ago, Jenne fell in love with writing—first for children, then for adults. Her children’s stories were mostly for her own children’s entertainment. However, she won first place in an international writing competition with Silly Little Feet, an endearing picture book for young children. Later, through her personal struggle with medical issues and anxiety, she began writing to encourage others to find their worth and hope in Christ.
Jenne started the ACW Chandler Writer’s Group in 2011 out of a desire to encourage other writers and to create a community that sharpens one another. Through years of critiquing, coaching, and editing for fellow writers’ group members, she fell in love with editing too. Acevedo Word Solutions LLC is a part of her commitment to honor God with her talents and passion for the written word.
Deeply committed to family and building a strong legacy, Jenne loves to spend time with her husband and three children. She is an avid reader who loves studying God’s Word, traveling, entertaining in her home, making jams and apple butter, baking gluten-free goodies, fine dining, and playing family games.
Encouraging others through the written word is her passion.
Education and Experience
Jenne graduated from Arizona State University in 1997 with a bachelor of arts degree in French. She is fluent in French and conversational in Spanish, but she will be the first to admit her language is a little rusty. She spent a semester at La Sorbonne in Paris studying language, arts, and culture, while also learning about herself and her relationship with the Lord.
Encouraging others is Jenne’s passion. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing God’s work in other people’s lives. She has been involved in many Bible studies and women’s ministry at Cornerstone Christian Fellowship for twenty years. Jenne and her husband have been doing lay counseling and premarital mentoring through Cornerstone for twelve years.
Several of Jenne’s articles and devotions have been published on Christian websites. She has also written for Group Publishing, MOPS International, and megachurch Cornerstone Christian Fellowship. She has written several articles and speeches on topics for women and has spoken at MOPS International and other moms groups in local churches.
Jenne joined The Christian PEN in 2014 and took thirteen professional editing courses (which are now offered through The PEN Institute). In 2015, she became the director of PENCON, the only conference for editors in the Christian market. In 2016, she became the director of The Christian PEN. Later in 2016, Jenne and two partners created Christian Editor Network LLC (CEN) to equip and empower Christian editors. In 2017, she became an instructor for The PEN Institute. And in 2019, she stepped away from leading CEN to focus on her work with private and corporate clients.
Jenne truly enjoys working with editing, writing, and publishing professionals.
