A world-renowned Christian music artist with chart-topping hits resulting in countless industry awards including a Grammy. Author of eight – soon to be nine – books. Spokesperson for Compassion International aiding in meeting basic needs for tens of thousands of children worldwide. Outspoken advocate for sexual purity and pro-life causes. Actress in the powerful film Sarah’s Choice.
These are all just glimpses of the powerful, God-given influence Rebecca St. James has had on the world. At the age of twelve, she grabbed hold of God’s calling on her life and never looked back. Her accomplishments are undeniable, encouraging, and inspiring.
While preparing to release her latest album I Will Praise You on April 5 of this year, Rebecca’s journey took an exciting new turn into marriage. Rebecca and her husband, Jacob Fink, were united in marriage in San Diego on April 23 in a ceremony that many attendees described as overflowing with God’s presence. The beginning of a new chapter in the life of Rebecca, I had the honor of sitting down to speak with her about this exciting season in her life, the journey of getting there, and the things she learned along the way.

Do you know who Rebecca St. James is? Here’s her story:
Rebecca St. James was born in Australia where she released her first album when she was twelve. Soon after, her parents moved to the U.S. Besides singing, St. James is also an author and actress. In 2000, she wrote the single “Wait for Me”, a song about waiting for the right guy to come along. To promote that song, she also wrote a book called “Wait for Me: Rediscovering the Joy and Purity in Romance”. Since then, St. James has become a major spokeswoman for sexual abstinence before marriage.
To date, she has written eight books with a another one set to come out this Fall. She’s appeared in many movies including Veggie Tales, An Easter Carol, and Sarah’s Choice — a movie about abortion and the choice of pro-life. St. James is still an advocate of pro-life, speaking at pregnancy centers and performing fundraising concerts.
