Finding Jeena

Jeena Gregory thought she’d made it. She has everything a woman could ask for and a budding career promises more. But when rumors around town cast her boss in a shady light, Jeena starts to question her employer’s integrity. Was she wrong to trust this man and this job?

When the boss disappears, salaries go unpaid, and Jeena overhears several hush-hush phone calls, she realizes her carefully crafted world is crumbling. Shaken to the core at the threat of losing everything, Jeena is suddenly confronted with her prejudices─and with a God she had long forgotten.

Book Review
Everyone defines success differently, but Jeena had the sterotypical definition.    Big money.   Big job.    Big house.      She thought she had found success and was on top of the world.      Unfortunately, when you are on top there is only one place to go.      And that is where she goes very quickly as the big money, big job and everything else she defined as success starts to disappear "like the foolish man who built his house upon the sand."

Suddenly she is pushed back into the world that she fought to leave behind.     She is also forced to see grace and mercy for the first time.     Not only her lack of it, but her unwillingness to accept it for herself.   

A great story of the true meaning of success and that great childhood song, "A wise man built his house upon the Rock."
