Happy Thursday reader!

Each week, actually each day, my brain is churning, wondering how to best inspire you, how to bring something to uplift your day and point you to the Lord who makes it all happen.

With that in mind, my ministry partner Cindi and I have been praying about a new direction for the newsletter. We want to make some changes that will improve content and provide you with inspiration to make your life easier, more joy-filled, and richer with God’s Word.

One big change begins with today’s edition: we will be sending out the newsletter once a monthly, rather than weekly. And we’re sure your inbox will appreciate it, as, no doubt, yours is like mine—jammed with more stuff than you can possibly read.

We hope the new direction of our newsletter will be something you can use to make your life easier, more joyful, and richer with God’s Word.

So, as you can see, things are changing indeed! Be sure to open up each monthly newsletter which you will be in your inbox on the first Tuesday of the month. That way, you will receive the latest news, encouragement, and inspiration from Janet.

  December 29, 2017 I stood by the table piled with my books after addressing a large group at a women’s conference. And right after I autographed her book, a sweet lady squeezed my hand. “Honey, I loved what you shared about what helped you get through the sorrow you experienced,” she said. “I also have known tragedy. But the …
