When Jayne speaks to groups, her passion for communicating truth and revealing Jesus takes priority, and Proverbs 2:3-6 is her guide:
Cry out for insight,
and ask for understanding.
Search for them as you would for silver;
seek them like hidden treasures.
Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord,
and you will gain knowledge of God.
For the Lord grants wisdom!
From his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
