I have been a MOPS Speaker for about 10 years and have also taught at Saddleback Church's Women's Bible Study as well as for Mom's Groups and other church affiliated groups.
I have a M.A. in Education and taught elementary school for 11 years before deciding to stay home and raise my family. My husband John and I have 3 children, Kiana- 15, Luke-13, and Logan- 11 years old.
I love encouraging mothers! I remember all too well, how wonderful it was and how overwhelming it was at the same time!
I speak in the Orange, LA, Riverside and San Diego areas and have been very blessed to be called back to revisit many churches.
If you are interested in having me speak, teach your group or speak at your next Women's Retreat, please do not hesitate to contact me!
@ (949) 279-0515 or you can email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
I charge a fee of $100 per talk plus mileage, and this is negotiable, of course!
What others have said after hearing me speak:
"Hi Janet :)
I hope all is well for you. I've been seeing your fun updates on your blog and on facebook! Well, since you spoke at our group last, the women haven't stopped talking about YOU! I was hoping to rebook you for spring (seems like eons away!). Would you be available to speak to our group again? I would love for you to do a "SEX" talk- seriously, the women have been asking for it and they love the way you are so approachable, down to earth, etc.All the best,
MOM 2 MOM Coordinator, Mission Viejo Christian Church, Mission Viejo, CA"

"Oh Janet, how you have blessed us with your brokenness before the Lord. You are unabashed in your gratefulness to His rescuing you from the enemy's plan of destruction! Because of that, the Lord uses you to break His love and power into the dark places in our own lives! God us using your powerfully. Go Girl!
"Thank you for being so transparent and identifiable. Our stones are of no use unless we share them and give glory to the One who delivered us from that which impedes our joy and ability to know the freedom and peace our King wants for us. You have been a blessing!
