Janis Jakes, Writer

It's true. Life is a journey. God is your guide.
I'm thankful your journey brought you here today.

Please take a few minutes to explore the site. While you're here, leave a prayer request. I will remember you in my prayer time.

I also ask you to pray for me. My hope is to use the written word to touch lives of women and families in such a way that they find strength to persevere during trials and passion to pursue every God-given assignment.

Let the adventure start anew. Let the journey continue. Remember that the Lord goes with you, and always begin the day with prayer.

Guiding Verse

And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us,
And establish the work of our hands for us;
Yes, establish the work of our hands.
(Psalm 90:17 / NKJV)

Janis Jakes' Statement of Faith

I believe Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross for my sins (and yours), rose again on the third day and sits at the right hand of the Father. I believe He will return for those who belong to His kingdom, and of His kingdom there will be no end. And, I believe that salvation is found in no other name than JESUS.
(Acts, 4:12; Luke 1:33; Acts 2:32-33; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Romans 10:9-10)
