Hello, my name is Jane Shine

Hi there - I am a 65 year old wife, mother and friend who has, so far, lived a rich and full life. I don’t mean monetary rich - I mean a life with amazing memories, experiences and learning curves. I have had the BIG highs -my marriage first house, birth of my children, vacations. I have had my BIG lows where I have been in the shadows of the valley. But I, for the most part, always CHOOSE contentment. Philippians 4:11 says ‘I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances’. Contentment does not come naturally. Why is that do you think?

I write about life - my life and the lives of others around me. The present and the past. What have I learned about being on a budget and how did that help me when my husband lost his job. What have I learned about friendship and how I have maintained relationships for almost 50 years - to just name a few. My hope is that women of all ages will travel their life’s highway with less baggage, and become wiser and inspired to live a fuller and richer life.

I truly believe that the glass is never half empty - it is always half full. It really depends on what lens you are looking through. If you are a half empty person, my prayer is that maybe I can bring you around. So that you can live victoriously and not defeated.

Big Hugs,
