Hi! I’m Grace, and I want to warmly welcome you to the headquarters for Jewel Warriors. I am Co-Director for Camp David of the Ozarks, an author, speaker, mom and friend.
You have landed in a safe zone- a place to be real and to belong. Whether you see yourself as a warrior or not, know that you are a jewel- precious, unique, and incredibly valuable. I am here to champion you saying, “You CAN.” You can recover. You can rebuild. You can reinvent and reinvest. If your dreams have been shattered and you feel hopeless, or you’ve been shamed and told you are “not enough,” know those are lies. You can shine.
Join our community of women who are overcomers. They not only shine, but when the light catches them, they sparkle all over the room.
These are posts written by a team of women who share stories from their lives to encourage, inspire and challenge us!
Learn what Jewel Warriors is all about and how you can find purpose and hope for your life. Join our community!
From books to blogs to tips on parenting and maintaining healthy relationships, we want to empower you to succeed.
Nominate a woman who is living in an extraordinary way so we can celebrate how she shines.

The weekend retreat will empower, encourage, and strengthen women who desire to ignite their lives with courage and renew their faith. We will help you uncover how hope, healing, abundance, and joy can spring where grief, shame, and hurt used to set up camp.
Jewel Warrior Women’s Conference was truly an assignment from God. I thank Him for choosing me to walk out this new story with a unique, gifted, anointed group of ladies who are not afraid to Unleash Their Warrior! Keep shining jewels! God bless you Grace Smith for climbing that mountain!!!

“I had the opportunity to connect with wonderful women at the Jewel Warrior conference hosted by Grace Smith. At this conference, women were transparent, hungry for God and many breakthroughs took place through workshops and small groups. I’m learning not to disregard small groups & workshops as components of conferences. Great deliverance is taking place through these entities. Sometimes you NEED the space and time to digest what God is doing. It was truly a GOD weekend.”
