ACCOLADES & BLURBS
There's nothing dull or boring about the poetry of Jayne Jaudon Ferrer and it is an added joy if you are blessed to hear her present it. Jayne's poetry speaks to the heart of every woman and their journey in life. She reminds us that with a sense of humor, faith in God and a circle of friends we can travel the ups and downs in life. Her stories and comments set the stage for the poems she shares, and her charming wit really makes the poetry come alive. Be prepared to laugh and to cry, to reminisce about the past and look to the future, and to leave feeling glad that God made you the special, wonderful woman that you are.
Jayne is a delightful speaker for an afternoon tea, a dinner party, or a Christian women's retreat. You will be blessed by her joy in the Lord. -- Pastor Barbara Parnell
