  • I am reading Jan’s latest book, “When Jesus Shows Up,” and felt compelled to recommed it. Jan truly has a talent for telling stories in the most powerful way. Two of the stories brought me to tears and caused me to plunge into some needed reflective thinking. I see this book as a profound, inspirational guide that you can leave on your nightstand and read one story at a time, just in time. I plan to buy a copy as a Christmas present for my team, my family, and some spiritual friends. Ken Blanchard would most likely enjoy it too, so I’ll send him a copy as well. Jan, congratulations on a beautiful work, and best of success as it soars to the top of the bestseller lists. Oh, by the way, I think non-Christians would enjoy it, too.

  • We had a great time this past Wednesday at our first “Hope” Bible Study! I asked everyone why they were interested in the study and they said they had enjoyed YOU so much at our retreat that they wanted to continue with the topic and study your book! They were really excited to hear you might join us from time to time.

  • The ladies in our Bible study were fascinated with Jan’s great story-telling ability. I appreciated the way she held everyone’s attention and encouraged discussion among our ladies. Her message of a confident hope in Jesus Christ is sure to encourage you.
