About the Author

Steve Green is the President of Hobby Lobby and along with his wife, Jackie, co-founders of the Museum of the Bible. He grew up in Oklahoma City. At age seven, he glued picture frames together for the family start-up business. With his father (David Green) as CEO, Steve became the President of that little start-up business which is now known as Hobby Lobby—the nation’s largest privately held arts and crafts retailer. Over the years, Steve’s been on a journey to experience the Bible as one story, one beautiful story.

Jackie Green is the co-founder of the Museum of the Bible, with her husband Steve. She has assisted in the launch of the Museum and its development efforts in various areas. She’s also a founder of Women of Legacy—an effort to help women discover and leave a legacy. She has co-authored two books: This Dangerous Book (with Steve Green) and Only One Life (with her daughter, Lauren Green McAfee). Jackie is actively involved in a variety of philanthropic endeavors, including distributing Bibles, helping children find their forever homes through adoption, and serving on the advisory board of a crisis pregnancy center, as well as serving on the board of a private Christian school. In 2013, she received the Eagle Forum Homemaker of the Year Award. She’s the mother of six children, and grandmother to four (so far!).

Bill High practiced law for twelve years before becoming the CEO of The Signatry. His mission is to help others live a life of significance through family, legacy, and generosity. He and his wife, Brooke, have four children, two sons-in-law, and two grandchildren. He can be found at and
