As I understand it, her main idea is that, rather than fearing the unknown future and rigidly expecting particular outcomes, we should instead focus on and appreciate the positive aspects of the present (remaining aware that death can come at any time), while approaching the future with an open-minded and flexible sense of wonder and adventure, guided by a uniquely individual and intuitively discerned "higher purpose" within a "grand design." And when the going sometimes gets really tough (as it surely will), we should try to maintain a degree of non-attachment, have confidence that we can cope, aim to learn and grow from these difficult experiences, and accept that perhaps things are happening the way they are for a meaningful reason.
These are fairly standard self-help ideas (with much borrowed from Eastern philosophy), but they're still solidly good ideas, and it's helpful to bring them together in the specific context of dealing with uncertainty. Moreover, Jeffers also suggests many practical exercises for people to try, which is vitally important since ideas need to be translated into action in order to make a real difference in people's lives.
Highly recommended for people who find value in (good) self-help books.
