The genesis of this book came from trying to understand my adopted son, Jacob, a bit better. As I learned so many things it became clear to me that the lessons I was learning about adoption issues were common needs touching areas way beyond adoption. Thus, the book! If you don’t understand what a goose has to do with this journey…keep reading…
Beginning with the true story of a goose, Understanding Goose explores the issues of loss, grief, rejection, identity,trust, shame, intimacy and control…and how they affect our lives.This book moves beyond mere self-analysis to help readers discover the fulfillment that comes when we look to God for healing and self-worth. Without the Scriptures and a relationship with God (which secular teachings often avoid), we miss the most significant and crucial path to healing! It is my conviction that all things work better when based on principles that have their origins in God’s word. May you find rest for your soul as you come to ‘Understand Goose’.”

Prime Rib: Exploring a Woman’s Value and Purpose
In Prime Rib, Jeanie Shaw shares her “Top Ten” list of truths essential to understanding your value and purpose as a woman.
As God lovingly fashioned woman from a rib—not just an extra rib he’d found lying around, but a rib taken from Adam’s own body, a rib of foremost importance and special purpose—he knew he had formed a “prime rib” that would complete creation, and take it from “good,” to “very good.” But if women have been so lovingly designed by God, why do so many miss the peace, the power, and the sense of fulfillment and purpose God created them to have?
This book explores God’s answers to questions and feelings that many women have:
- Does God love me and have a purpose for my life?
- Can I overcome fear and live victoriously?
- Can God help me forgive and not hold on to resentment?
- Is it possible for me to take my thoughts and words captive?
- How can I see the beauty that God sees in me?
- How can I have the close relationships I long for?
Be prepared to fall in love with the God who is in love with you, and to live the life he created you to live.
“Prime Rib” has recently been translated into Spanish. Please contact me for details about “Exquisita Costilla”.
I wrote this book (my first book) at the beginning of a journey that changed my life…for the better. The journey has been much more difficult than I could have imagined…sort of like a path I traveled this morning. The path was rocky. Poison ivy, along the sides of the path, seemed to be “eager for attack”. Walking the path produced some sweat or “glow” (if you want a more dainty word). However, beyond the hill and at the end of the path I witnessed a most spectacular panoramic view of our gorgeous rocky New England coast. Isn’t it often the case… that in order to catch the most breathtaking views you must first take a journey?
From the back cover: Come with Jeanie Shaw on an incredible journey of faith and love…Jacob’s Journey. Jeanie shares the story of her family’s adoption of a Romanian orphan and the insights she gained about God’s adoption of his children. Heart-moving and heart-challenging, this book will bring tears and smiles, heartaches and belly laughs…all wrapped up together. Jacob will journey right into your heart and give you a deeper understanding of adoption and a more personal relationship with your heavenly Father. You may order directly from me.
