Jane Stanley with JANE: A MEMOIR OF FAMILY AND FAITH

Jane Stanley has lived in 42 homes and held more than 25 different jobs. She’s been married five times (to four men) and holds four advanced degrees. She’s started a private school, an alternative school for juvenile offenders, and a pilot pre-school for three-year-olds. At the age of 58, she decided to become a minister. She preaches each Sunday in a poverty stricken neighborhood of Gulfport, Mississippi. As a testament to her success from the pulpit, one of her congregants recently bragged, “This stuff works! I’m not half the slut I used to be!”

"Across the landscape of her life, Jane Stanley experimented, explored, won, lost, and ultimately prevailed. The turbulent times were, as if by grace, laced with joy and kindness. This story reflects those times honestly and poignantly...sometimes causing a reader to laugh, sometimes cry, and sometimes say, 'I don't believe it.'" - Robert Khayat, author of The Education of a Lifetime
