Jeane Carmichael

Hello! I am Jeane Carmichael and I am the author of The Stand Out Project. I am passionate about my family and being a servant of God. My desire is to see every person having a deep relationship with God, and living an exciting selfless life that will inspire others to do the same. That's why we have started a mentoring program for high school girls to embolden them to godly living while providing them with skills and opportunities to make a difference in their generation. You might "see" an accent in my writing and that is because I am originally from Brazil. What does that mean? You may get some cultural information once in a while that will broaden how you perceive the world. Nothing to lose here! I hope you enjoy your reading and leave me a comment if you desire so.

Building a Burn Pile – A Lesson To Be Learned

Building a Burn Pile – A Lesson To Be Learned

Another storm has come. Branches lay all over the yard and the work is still to be done. It’s time to build a burn pile. I did not do much of that growing up in Brazil, if any; I really can’t recall. Mostly because we lived in houses with a much smaller yard than now or in condos where concrete seemed to be everywhere. Life was rushed between the urgency of accomplishments and fulfillment and ther ...[Read More]
