Jane, you know I love you and I love your books. I have read your latest book and I thought it was just what I needed. BUT, then I decided to get the audible version. What a breath of fresh air. Your story telling and southern accent add a whole new dimension to this book. As I write this, you are talking about spanx. I am laughing hysterically. Thank you for adding humor to our lives. Readers, don't let this one slip by you. Jane lives "in between" and as a love for the Lord. her family and friends.
I had the pleasure of meeting Jane Jenkins Herlong at a conference earlier this year. She's as warm and genuine in person as she is in her writing and public speaking. A wonderful, Southern, Christian lady. Thus, it was with excitement that I bought her latest book, RHINESTONES ON MY FLIP-FLOPS. I thoroughly enjoyed the read! Jane's latest book is filled with gentle, self-deprecating humor that highlights the biblical text and women she discusses in each of her chapters, and it is loaded with encouragement and wisdom that's grounded in God's word.
From "Deceived Eve" to "Fearless, Fabulous Esther" to "Mary, Did You Know" and every woman in between, Jane deftly weaves their "flip-flops" with their "sparkle and shine," illuminating paths we women can walk that will help us overcome, even when we make our own, inevitable missteps.
Some of my favorite quotes from Rhinestones include: "I learned a great lesson years ago: what others think about you is none of your business, so do not make it your business."
"Always remember, in the eyes of our Father, there are no flip-flops too large to overcome."
"We all need a good dose of self-esteem, and it supposedly comes from husbands." [I snorted out loud on this one because the good Lord knows it's so very true.]
"It is an honor to parent a child and a massive responsibility to set a good example by the way you live. If you want to confuse a child, say one thing and do another."
"Why should we remember [Mrs. Lott]? Simply put, we should strive for a life that is sparkling with rhinestones, not a life ending with fire and brimstone."
RHINESTONES ON MY FLIP-FLOPS is profound, moving, and laugh-out-loud hilarious. It's a great read, and I highly recommend it!
OK, I'm not one who would have found this book on my own but found it based on the author and her funny sense of humor. Guys you need to read it and connect with Thomas.... I found myself at one point connecting with him and a few pages later wondering why he would do something like that but that's what makes it a great read for men. I laughed my way through the book seeing myself in the stories the author, Jane shares. It's a book I'll make sure is on the gift giving list.
Great inspirational book to give to friends or those that cross our paths needing hope and direction... or just some good laughs! Jane’s sense of humor and genuine, real life stories interwoven with spiritual truth is the perfect balance all of us need as we go through our own “flip flops” in life. The guts to be transparent and share her funny personal stories woven with WOW (women of wisdom) biblical stories, made me laugh out loud and nod my head in agreement at the same time. This is a book I’m keeping to reread when I need some truth, fun or a pick me up as life happens. Loved it!!!
Jane has a rare gift for finding humor and wisdom in the quirky incidents of every day life. An easy read that will have you picking this up again to discover what you missed. Buy one for all your friends
This is the best read I have encountered in a long while. This book was what I have missed in my reads for a long time - funny, insightful, comforting, and just down right entertaining! Didn't want it to end. Looking forward to the next adventure with this author!!
Once again Jane has made me laugh out loud as she flip flops through her hectic life. She always finds a way to make us laugh and then reflect on the many ups and downs of life and how we can find ways upon reflection to shine. Keep shining Jane! Will look forward to the next book/installment of a busy life with a purpose to inspire us all.
Like salted caramel, Jane delivers the perfect blend of sweet humor and tangy insight. You'll laugh. You may cry too, but you'll close the book knowing you've spent time with someone who knows how to live joyously in spite of the tough times we all go through.
