Janet W. Ferguson grew up in Mississippi and received a degree in Banking and Finance from the University of Mississippi. She has served as a children’s minister and a church youth volunteer. An avid reader, she worked as a librarian at a large public high school. She writes humorous inspirational fiction for people with real lives and real problems. Janet and her husband have two grown children, one really smart dog, and a few cats that allow them to share the space.

We spun from the impact and landed (thankfully) on the lawn of a fire station. Our car was totaled. Maybe it was the wreck combined with pregnancy hormones, but after that, anxiety while in vehicles plagued me. For whatever reason, it eventually led to panic attacks when I drove on the interstate.
I’m an open person, so I shared my experience when it felt appropriate (or when asked to drive on the interstate, ha). Along the way, I met many other people plagued by either anxiety or depressive disorders. I wanted to write a novel that would encourage people with serious anxiety problems, but I was busy caring for my aging parents. In 2012, both of my parents passed away along with my mother-in-law within a sixty day period. It was a tough time for my family, and I realized that life is short. So I sat down to write.
Leaving Oxford is what came of it. God has still been able to use me as a children’s minister, a youth volunteer, and in so many other ways despite my weakness. Whatever struggles and weaknesses you’re facing, you aren’t alone. No matter where you are in life, you are still glorious and useful in God’s eyes.

I hope and pray that at least one person is encouraged by my story.
