My Review

Do you need some encouragement and laughs today?

Then, you’ve come to the right place.

All of Jeanette’s stories will leave you smiling, feeling better about yourself, and being uplifted as you read about her crazy-exciting life. Each story offers hope that regardless of the mistakes you’ve made, where you find yourself today, and what will be coming for tomorrow, God is there with you every step of the way.

I so appreciate Jeanette’s willingness to share every embarrassing moment as well as every glorious victory with us, her readers. Her open heart has and will continue to touch so many lives. Hugs to you sweet Jeanette!

Read the interview and love it. Jeanette’s book kind of reminds me of Barbara Johnson’s writing. I would like to enter to win a copy of her book.

i know you said either place for a comment – but here is the same as the FB comment…..
I know I need grace and two scopes would be much better. But then if my two scopes is served up with a few chuckles that would be so very nice. Perhaps I'll win this nice book in the giveaway and get it all – now wonder if grace will be gracious to me…..

Hi, Diane:

I purchased Jeanette’s book when it was first available. Indeed, it is a heart-warming and uplifting collection of personal vignettes. I admire how Jeanette shares her spiritual wisdom with the reader, and some of her amusing flubs–and we all have those! Jeanette is blessed with a knack for seeing the Scriptural lesson in everyday accomplishments as well as set-backs. I highly recommend this book!
