Greetings from Quaker Jane... and welcome to my website where I share the openings, concerns, leadings and opportunities God has, in his great loving-kindness, provided to me. My name is Isabel, aka Quaker Jane. I am a Conservative Quaker who fellowships with Ohio Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends, though I am not a member.

Read about How I Became a (Bonnet-required) Plain-dressing Quaker. I also have a QuakerJane Facebook page.

(The dress is their maternity style, which I am wearing in these photos, but I am not currently expecting).

One or the other becomes wrong when it is contrary to God's wishes for me. When that becomes apparent, I yield. If thee can let Jesus guide thee in thy daily life, he may set thee free.
AND now Friends, so many Monthly Men's Meetings as you have in your County, you may have so many Monthly Women's Meetings; and if once a year, at least, you had a General Women's Meeting; it would be well (for in some Counties they have as many Quarterly Women's Meetings as Mens) and in others they have only two in the Summer-time, because the Ways are foul and Days short in Winter. . . .

I am not Amish or Mennonite, but some people who come to my website are interested in knowing more about these groups. I can recommend these books as authoritative and relatively inexpensive sources of further information.
