Priceless Wisdom from a True Spiritual Elder!
"A Word from 'Brother' Jeanne" brings the kind of sage life experience that's much needed in today's information-rich, but wisdom-poor, society. From a long line of Methodist preachers and the daughter of a bishop, "Brother" Jeanne proves the value of a strong family background, particularly a family that's as grounded in faith as hers. She also emphasizes the importance of a supportive faith community in which one both receives and gives. Many "spiritual but not religious" young people could benefit from the ways that the author describes how belonging to a church eases loneliness and hardship in a cold and cruel world.
"Brother Jeanne" draws much of this wisdom from her life experiences, often by a severe test of her own faith. She tells personal stories with wit and insight, moving from the specific to the universal in ways that will enlighten receptive readers of any age. "Senior saints" may especially find encouragement from this book, as the author candidly talks about grieving after the death of her husband of many years, and coming to terms with multiple infirmities. She proves that though the flesh may weaken, the spirit can actually strengthen in weakness by allowing God to take over.
Begun as a column for her local church newsletter, "A Word from 'Brother' Jeanne" transcends the confines of its time and space to bring an eternal message of forgiveness and hope. Few authors mine both the riches and the dross of their lives as well as Jeanne Webb Davis has. She is a true spiritual elder with a priceless "word" to share with those who will listen.
