Bury Me with my Pearls by Jane Jenkins - Review

Bury Me with My Pearls is a real-life, roller-coaster ride of laughter, tears, and stomach-churning truths by a professional speaker, humorist, and singer who, as Miss South Carolina, represented her state in the Miss America pageantand has been singing, speaking, and writing ever since. Incorporating the analogy of pearls, this book uses humor and spiritual principles to bravely address difficult issues many in her audiences encounter within changing roles, self-actualization, and families.
Bury Me with My Pearlsaddresses the importance of how to guard the countless gifts given by our Lord and that doing the right thing is the right thing, regardless of our feelings or circumstances. It is about trusting God in all things and how he can turn our irritants into to pearls. Bury Me with My Pearls encourages us to develop our pearls, protect our jewels, carefully wear them next to our hearts, and share with others. All of this with a good splash of humor.
Explore how to walk in love while pruning the family tree in an environment filled with difficult people and how God’s power is released when learning to trust Him, to embrace the lessons being taught, and to grow spiritually no matter how painful. Like the process of the pearl, so many women need to find and embrace their buried treasures.

My Review:
Being a Southern girl and someone who wouldn’t be caught dead without her pearls, I just had to read this book when I saw the title. Not familiar with this author, I was enthralled by her ability to make you laugh and cry and then laugh again.
Jane Jenkins Herlong is an amazing writer and I loved the way she wove scripture into her stories and ended each story with a moral lesson.
You will be inspired by the book and maybe even a better person for having read it. I highly recommend reading Bury Me With My Pearls and it’s worth every one of the five stars I’m giving it.

    1. Jacque, thank you for stopping by. I haven't been posting much lately. We had five deaths in our family in five months - with three being in December. It's been a little mind boggling to say the least. There are a few more posts on my other blog. Sadly, I've been forgetting to cross-post. It is www.mylifeonestoryatatime.com I appreciate you taking the time to say hello and this book is definitely one for your TBR list.
