Broken Jar is for those who wish to be transformed by the Potter from a showboat into an ark of testimony for Him. It is for earthen vessels who know that to be continually molded by His hands-even broken and reformed, if need be-is the only way to keep bearing His hallmark-the only way to continue glorifying the true Potter. From January through December, these daily devotionals, anchored deeply in the Word of God, ask challenging questions about growing pains and comfortable stagnation: Are we allowing the Potter to do as He pleases with us, the clay? Do we trust Him to put pressure where it is needed to mold us to His liking, or do we stiffen at and shrink from His touch? When we arrive at a shape we like, do we grow so proud and possessive of this present form that we disengage ourselves from the wheel to harden into an independent and finished pot to remain permanently "fixed"? This book is for those jars who refuse to stay fixed. Jan Doke is a retired high school English/Bible Literature teacher. She lives in Belton, Texas with her husband, Larry. When she is not writing, she enjoys studying and teaching the Bible, speaking at women's retreats, mentoring at a drug-rehab center, traveling, hiking, fishing, cooking, and playing with her five grandchildren. She has been published in Christian Woman magazine and is currently working on her first novel, Out of the Chute in Azalea Heights."
