Jottings By Jane
A Collection of Wisdom, Musings and Poems
by Jane Sheldon and Dotty J Bollinger

What is the best advice your mother ever gave you? What snippets of wisdom and insight has she shared with you and the other people in her life? Wouldn’t it be a shame if those were lost or forgotten?

Jottings by Jane is one woman’s endeavor to ensure that the thoughts, perspectives, and insights of her mother, Jane Marie Sheldon―an amazing mother and member of her community―are available for years to come, both to those who knew her and those who were never lucky enough to get the chance.

This collection of thoughts, poetry, and “jottings” by Jane, some of which were previously published in her local newspaper, as well as letters and notes to her children, not only offers helpful insights on life, family, and faith, but captures the essence of a wonderful woman well worth remembering.

Jane Sheldon was a lay minister at her local United Methodist Church, as well as the “prayer momma” and grandma of her family. Coming from humble beginnings, and with a deep and enduring faith, she played an important role in keeping her family connected on a daily basis.

Her daughter, author Dotty Bollinger, speaks nationally at business events to inspire team unity, loyalty, and performance management, and has published two previous books on related subjects: Women of Faith in the Marketplace: Finding Your Kingdom Purpose (2016), and The Secret Sauce: Lead Well and get Exceptional Results (2017).

Dotty currently lives on Norris Lake in Caryville, Tennessee, with her husband, Jim, and two silver labs, Harley and Nova.
