Cinnamon Dickens ONE: transformation "The Bible is like no other piece of literature in existence in that every single time we read it the Author is present with us and speaking to us. Let's learn the life-giving joy of reading God's Word for more than information, but also for transformation." Cinnamon is a Des Moines native, living in Cambridge, IA.  Fun fact about Cinnamon - her mom was forced by the US Navy to name her without talking to her dad first!
