"And when you discover what you will be in your life, set out to do it as if God Almighty called you at this particular moment in history to do it. Don’t just set out to do a good job. Set out to do such a good job that the living, the dead or the unborn couldn’t do it any better." - Martin Luther King Jr.

Alabama is a state filled with economic opportunity and promise. Every county is a priceless treasure, encompassed with an abundance of history and heart.
One of the greatest blessings of my life has been the ability to travel across our 67 counties (#Our67), work with a team to build our state, and help folks share their history and stories with others. More good news awaits Alabama. Here is to an incredible bicentennial year and beyond!
Merry Christmas from the Jones Family. Many blessings to you today and always! #Our67
