A true renaissance woman, Jewel is the wife of gospel jazz artist Ben Tankard and is making international strides as a businesswoman, author, and evangelist. With her deeply embedded roots in entrepreneurship, Jewel is a fierce advocate for personal development and financial empowerment. She mentors others to invoke new ideas in order to inspire them to dream and create change in their lives. Jewel's perspective is that prayer is paramount to success, and she is deeply committed to giving people, especially women, a picture of what is possible. When she's not involved in ministry, closing a business deal, or tending to her blended family, Jewel loves boating, jet skiing, tubing, and dancing. Jewel faces a rough patch this season as she copes with her youngest, Cyrene, leaving for college and a rift with her sister threatens to divide the family.
