& Writing

so glad you’re here

I’m Janet Perez Eckles—dedicated to igniting in you a passion to overcome your struggles.


I invite you to take a break from this chaotic, dark world. In the pages of my books, you’ll find proof of God’s power to heal and restore. Through my keynote messages, you and your group will be lifted up with unexpected humor, practical steps, and stories of victory. And through my videos, you’ll be entertained enough to see the lighter side of life.


I can offer this to you because I’ve crossed the bridge from adversity to victory. Some have said I should be sinking in the mud of misery—blindness at 30, the murder of my son, the acquittal of the man responsible, and the death of my 42-year marriage. But that’s not the case. Instead, I dance on the platform of gratitude…because of Christ Jesus who ushered in fresh joy within beautiful victories.


Now it’s your turn to welcome the same kind of triumph that’s framed with purpose, confidence, and sweet expectations.


No matter what you face, you’re no longer alone. Together we’ll walk toward your triumphant outcome. I invite you to begin by taking in the inspiration prepared for you in these pages!

Speaking - Faith Based

While our world shakes with fear, God’s Word stands firm: “Be not afraid for I am with you.” I'd love to team up with you and make this truth come alive before your congregation or women’s event. Here’s how we can make this happen.

Speaking - Corporate Events

The workplace is not the same anymore. These chaotic times keep many from reaching excellence. Today, leaders are only as effective as their ability to rise above negativity and overcome adversity.

Here’s how we can partner together and provide that path to your leaders.

Janet's Books

I fill the pages of my five books with a bit of sass and a friend-to-friend style, but with life-changing guidance for you to begin a life of significance and abundance.

Is this what you're missing?

These little ones you see in the pic aren’t rattled, stressed or worried. They sit peacefully delighted by the rain splashing on the outside patio. In the other picture, could the two-year-old be praying for her little brother? Could be. But the disciples didn’t know about the power of these little one’s innocence. They asked Jesus who was the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? His reply didn’t mention the devoted Christians, the teachers, the holy preachers or the driven to perform. Instead,...read more
Victory - God's Promises

When my problems are too deep.

As the sun and the sand grew hotter with every hour, the ocean breeze blew a delightful freshness. Then a challenge came from a friend. “C’mon, it’ll be lots of fun,” he said. The adventurous side of me wanted to say, “Let’s do it. I’ve never tried scuba diving lessons.” But how silly that would be—completely blind, navigating in the depth of the sea…to see what? I gave him a silly smile and shook my head. “Nope. Too crazy for me.” But as a...read more
