In 2001, Janis gave her life to Christ. She started journaling as a way to organize her thoughts, feelings, and prayers. She is a member of two cross-Canada Christian writers’ groups, The Word Guild and Inscribe Christian Writers Fellowship. She is adamant that all Christians need to spend time in God’s Word.
Janis has been blogging since 2008. In 2012 she published an award-winning children’s book Tadeo Turtle. She ran a group blog called Under the Cover of Prayer for four years.
Recently she joined Hope Stream Radio, an Internet radio station.Her talk Growing Through God’s Word can be heard each Tuesday.
In addition to a career as a homemaker and teacher in the public school system, Janis was a partner in a Canadian small business with her husband, Wayne. They currently reside in Haliburton, Ontario, Canada and winter in Mesa, Arizona. Their family of three married children and seven grandchildren keep them active and enthused. Snowball, their maltipoo dog, is a fun loving ball of fur whose need for walks keeps them outside and exercising often.
Janis loves tell others about what God has done and is doing in her life.
Janis can be reached on her website, Growing Through God’s Word and on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter.
