Jackie Green is a full-time homemaker who relishes her roles of wife, mother to six children, mother-in-law, and “Gigi” to four grandchildren. Married to her high-school sweetheart, Steve, for more than 30 years, Jackie actively supports him in his high-profile role as President of Hobby Lobby and Chairman of the Board of Museum of the Bible. She has just completed a project where she assisted with the plans and design of a beautiful building for the company’s conference center known as the Legacy House.
Jackie homeschooled for thirteen years and now serves on the Board of her younger children’s private Christian school. An adoptive mom herself, Jackie served on the Advisory Board of a local Crisis Pregnancy Center, worked with her family in orphanages worldwide, and has assisted several agencies in making adoption financially possible.
Over the past eight years, Jackie has assisted Steve on launching Museum of the Bible, and later founded Women of Legacy. She has volunteered, traveled and worked with the development team in a variety of areas, such as hospitality, event planning, and merchandise design. She has hosted events and conducted interviews discussing the many different aspects of the Museum. Jackie released her first book, This Dangerous Book, with her husband Steve in November 2017 (Zondervan). Her second book, Only One Life, written with her daughter, Lauren Green McAfee, releases June 2018.
Jackie was recognized as Homemaker of the Year by Phyllis Schlafly and the Eagle Forum in 2013. Her other involvements include her home church and Christian charities, both national and international. Although she is a world traveler, her favorite place is with her family.
