“Disarmingly real,” as one reviewer put it, Jane’s passion is to see people’s hearts restored by the knowledge of the truth: that God absolutely delights in them, that God is crazy about them, that God would give everything on earth to make sure they know they are loved. The problem is, she says, “that we have lost our hearts. We are so busy stamping out fires and tending to a thousand urgencies every day, that we don’t remember, don’t notice, that our hearts have gotten trampled somewhere in all the stamping.”
“I believe that every issue we face – whether busyness, failure, shame, transitions – every issue is intended to lead us to God,” she says. “Our tendency is to let our problems separate us from God and one another – but instead, they can become tools to allow us to deepen our spiritual lives, and to in turn change the world!”
Jane speaks internationally and ecumenically, inviting her audiences to tumble into Jesus’ arms and find the love they’ve been looking for.
