eBookJoint Venture eBook • $8.99
Jeanie Miley is an authority on things spiritual and on what she calls the Joint Venture, because she knows the Author of Life and the Giver of Salvation and the Inspirer of our Souls and Lives. She is an authority on matters of the heart and our walk with God because she has prayed without ceasing and traveled the world from without and from within for truth. She has walked with many fellow pilgrims and has taken the wounds of her life—the wounds that we all have to a greater or lesser degree—and she has with conviction and honesty taken us to the scarred but redemptive hands of Jesus. She has shown us how grace leaks out of the brokenness of our lives, and that we not only need God but each other in the Joint Venture of grace. Reading this book is a feast. Come to the table and be fed.”
—From the Foreword, by James W. Nutter,
Rector, Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church, Houston, Texas
This is not another how-to-be-spiritual book, but a treasury of hard-earned wisdom from a Christian life well lived. . . . Joint Venture is in a way like Augustine’s Confessions—it takes one life deeply committed to the quest for Christian wholeness and makes it a rich resource for other seekers. Take and read. Here find wisdom.

Joint Venture is a sensitive and honest memoir of a woman’s response to the call of her inner authentic self to be set free, not as an egotistical venture, but as a sacred responsibility and a partnership effort with God. Reading Jeanie Miley’s experience of her search encourages me to continue on my own “joint venture” with God—with an inspiring sense of the companionship of a sister in Christ on a similar pilgrimage.

With non-brittle, loving honesty and practicality, Jeanie Miley describes the journey of discovery and release of the loving, creative person in each of us who has been wrapped in the invisible grave clothes of denial and out-of-touch religious and social conventions. This is a strong, clear message that I believe can help thousands of women and men break through the frustrating fear of discovering and becoming who (and what) God made us to be. I strongly recommend this book.
