Jayne Michener has been married for over twenty years to a "son of thunder" and is mother to two adolescent daughters, one delightfully immersed in nature and another humorous, artistic girl who is devoted to cats.

The First […]

From Pain to Wisdom to Hope 

From Pain to Wisdom to Hope We also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope.  Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.   Romans 5:3-5 Pain Pain is the high price of wisdom, but even after purchase, we can accidentally leave it on the shelf.  […]
