Annie Blest’s creative mind was sharpened early on with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Her desire to help others played out over thirty years of human resources, attaining an MS in behavioral science along the way. Widowed today, Annie lives in Texas. She continues faith-based painting and writing along with a heart for prison ministry—a place she describes as ripe with a harvest of second-chance fruit.

Her current passion is “Growing Older in Times Growing Shorter” and she welcomes opportunities to speak on the topic she describes as urgent.
