Enjoy this real-life, roller-coaster ride of laughter, tears, and stomach-churning truths by a Southern professional speaker, humorist, and singer who, as Miss South Carolina, represented her state in the Miss America pageant and has been singing, speaking, and writing ever since. Incorporating the analogy of pearls, this inspirational book uses humor and spiritual principles to bravely address difficult issues many in her audiences encounter within changing roles, self-actualization, and families.

Bury Me with My Pearls is funny and motivational, addressing the importance of how to guard the countless gifts given by our Lord and that doing the right thing is the right thing regardless of our feelings or circumstances. This personal development book is about trusting God in all things and how he can turn our irritants into pearls. Bury Me with My Pearls encourages us to develop our pearls, protect our jewels, carefully wear them next to our hearts, and share with others. As a speaker and author, Jane shares this with a good splash of humor.

Explore how to walk in love while pruning the family tree in an environment filled with difficult people. See how God's power is released when learning to trust Him, to embrace the lessons being taught, and to grow spiritually no matter how painful. Like the process of the pearl, so many women need to find and embrace their buried treasures.

The author is a CPAE Hall of Fame Speaker

Wisdom delivered with Southern grace, charm and humor.  This enjoyable book will have you laughing at situations that we can all identify with.  Well, maybe not the being in pageants part- but the types of people she encountered there and in everyday life.  Even toxic family is a chapter in this book.  A cup of tea, a warm fire and you have a perfect evening read that may even help you with a situation or two of your own.  I received a copy of this book for my honest review.

See full review @ The Indigo Quill . blogspot . com Thank you Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas for providing a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.       Jane Jenkins Herlong is a bona fide pearl to add to your strand of inspiration. Very much like Melanie Shankle and Mandy Hale, Herlong brings humor and wit to the scene, even in the most desperate situations. If you're in need of a little perspective, then this book is for you. The book opens up with Herlong's "Mothers of Pearl" where the reader is introduced to the ones who inspired the author throughout her life, planting seeds that grew into [spiritual] fruit that determined several situations in her life. It doesn't take long to get to know Herlong in Bury Me With My Pearls. She is very open, candid, and has no fear of becoming acquainted with her reader. She takes us through several situations throughout her book of stories about not just her, but of people in her life that added to her strand of pearls. Each story is unique, and comes with its own set of problems and out-of-ordinary solutions that will have you laughing and crying along with them. You will take quite the joy ride through this book, and hopefully you will be left encouraged and inspired as well. The format of the book is easy to read and easily organized to fit a busy schedule. Each segment is broken up into chapters and subchapters that are short and sweet, but rich in impact. There are only 8 chapters in this book. You will also find plenty of resources in the back to hook you up with more of Herlong's ministry. The only thing that was missing from my galley was an author bio. It's possible that it's included in the hard copy of the book, but I didn't have access to it at the time. However, I wanted to learn more about the author and was unable to.  Definitely, if you need a laugh, some encouragement, and a dose of inspiration (so basically, if you are a breathing human being with a soul), then you need to pick up this book. You won't regret it!

I love Jane Jenkins Herlong. I love this book. She has you hooked from the first line. I personally know Jane and can "hear" her talking as I read this book with her true Southern accent. My mom has been in the hospital for two weeks and commented (the day this book became available at Amazon) "will you read to me?" I jumped and said "oh mom, I have the perfect book for us to read together". She loves Jane as much as I do. At the end of an otherwise gloomy day, she and I were laughing together as we began to read "Bury Me with My Pearls". Thank you Jane for such an awesome book. We love you.

Think of the humor of "Golden Girls" mixed with little pearls of wisdom for every day life. That's exactly what you get with Jane Jenkins Herlong's book "Bury Me With My Pearls." The stories she shares from her family will have you laughing out loud and wishing you could've been there to experience it yourself. Jane has a wonderful way of taking struggles so many of us face and putting a positive spin on them. I love her observation that you have to find the funny in dysfunction. I carry that thought with me every day now. Even if you aren't looking for "advice", "Bury Me With My Pearls" is a great read, and I have no doubt that you'll remember the little pearls of wisdom when you least expect it.
