This Is Us

These Are My People

My name is Janet. I am a wife, mother, and Mimi. I have been married for 39 years, to the boy I had a crush on in 6th grade. We have two grown children with spouses who feel like my own. We have one granddaughter, Isabella, and one grandson, Milo. This is a fun season of life, full of bubbles, tickles, and giggles.

Our secret to a long marriage, God at the center, and never use the word divorce. Our secret to great adult kids, start them in church young, and keep them in youth group. Our secret to grandkids, there is no secret SPOIL them.

I was saved at the age of 14, but God really became real to me in my 40’s when I started to understand and comprehend God’s grace. That no matter what I had done, and no matter what my perfectionist, people pleasing self did, God was not going to love me any more or any less than He already did. A life changing concept that I still grow in each day.

I work at a family owned trucking company with my parents, my son, my two sisters, my brother-in-law’s, and nieces and a nephew. Which can be amazing some days, and amazingly trying on other days. All joking aside, I know how lucky I am to be blessed to work with all them.

My husband is the Assimilation/Celebrate Recovery Pastor at Redemption Church. Full time Pastors wife is a new role for me, but being part of CR is something we have been doing for years. It aligns with one of my passions, helping women find healing in Christ. Jump over to my Celebrate Recovery page to learn about healing from hurts, habits, and hang ups.

Why did I start this blog? I love words, I love reading them, and I love writing them. Writing has always been a way to formulate my thoughts. When I talk my brain goes faster than my mouth, writing makes me slow down and organize my thoughts before they turn into words. For a long time I wrote for praise and attention of others. Now, I am WORKING on writing just for the love of it. So, I hope you will choose to follow me on this journey. You may follow by email, just click follow on the home page.
