On Writing: Meet One of our Authors

Jean Oathout

Jean Oathout

Jean Oathout writes from her heart. Her first recently released book, SO YOU PLAN TO MARRY A MAN, is as much a personal testimony of what she’s learned from God as a book of helps for wives and gals desiring to be married one day.

Jean was born in Tacoma Park, MA, in 1937. Her father died when Jean was six, her mother remarrying when Jean was eleven years old and moving the family to New York State.

In 1955, Jean married an Air Force man and had three sons. However, the marriage failed. Jean later remarried and had one more son. Her new husband relocated the family in Vermont in 1983, where they “homesteaded,” growing most of their food and living without electricity for most of seventeen years.

Unfortunately for Jean, the second marriage also had its problems, both she and her husband “having issues.” Jean found it hard to be a submissive wife and wanted to leave. However, at the Lord’s prompting, she stayed and learned how to deal with life according to the way her husband wished. Through these difficult years, Jean started to journal, putting her writings in poetic form with the thought that some day she would share them with other women.

Finally in 1999, Jean had to leave her married life and seek inward healing that only God could provide. Over the years, she’s come to realize that she needed to forgive and go on with her life. She has fellowship with a body of believers in a local church and has many friends in the Madrid, NY, community. She is presently working on two more poetic devotionals that are scheduled for publication with Lighthouse Publishing from the Carolinas.

It’s Jean’s desire that her efforts glorify the Lord and help women look to Him for guidance in their married lives. Her next book, WHEN A WOMAN MARRIES A MAN, will share more wisdom Jean had learned to find God’s help and peace in the trials of everyday life. Her third book, TO RAISE A CHILD CAN BE JOY, is an encouragement to parents who desire to rear their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
