1. I would love to read what you said about Eve. I imagine that God was not surprised – after all, He gave us choice, He gave us the tree, He gave us curiosity – and then he said, “Don’t. . . .” Oh – there is so much to discuss in the Eve story – that would be a great linky prompt!

  2. So glad it will be archived! I’d love to see you live, but I have barbershop rehearsal. Prayers going up for you and an awesome time of sharing the Lord’s Word.

  3. Hi Jolene, I am in love with your posts. I came across your post about how to become a Godly women, when you listed a bunch of books. Thanks so much I’m definitely subscribing to get your posts! I wanted to ask, ive been married for 4 years and we have had A LOT of issues were working through them but its been mostly me. I’m looking for a book to be encouraged by or just to help me move beyond the issues I’ve had a part in. I’ve was unfaithful emotional with another guy, and had a really bad habit on lying. Now I’ve realized I had a problem, I just maybe need some encouragement on how to develop trust again with my husband. I would love to hear what your thoughts are and hear any suggestions. Your such a great women and I that God I came across your blog!

    1. Hi Amanda,
      So glad to have you here at The Alabaster Jar! Unfortunately I can’t think of any books for your specific situation, other than reading the Bible, of course! Just surrendering your heart to living a life pleasing to the Lord will cause the transformation to take place in your heart. And when your heart is transformed, your actions will follow. Your husband will see that your actions and attitudes are different and that’s what’s going to cause him to trust you. All of this will take time and a submission will to the to the Lord. You and your husband will need patience in this journey. Grace is another big thing that will be needed. Keep in mind that the lying thing is probably a pride issue. That’s usually why one lies. We do so to cover our sins, our imperfections, failures, and shortcomings. It’s always, always, always better for others to see the real you even if the real you falls short (like we all do!) rather than seeing a woman being deceitful. I hope this helps, friend! Stay the narrow course of following the Lord no matter how difficult life becomes!

  4. What a beautiful thought! My daughters have remarkable purpose. I’m excited to see what you have to say about Eve!
