Jana Tether

Goodreads Author



My hubby, my mom, NIV Bible, wonderful friends, excellent books

Member Since
September 2007

Author of "And God Created Human: A Collection of Scenes and Monologues", an array of humorous performing material (scenes, skits, monologues, vignettes) where God and humanity are brought together to show the Almighty One's love for us despite ourselves (a quirky bunch we are by Jana's own account!).
This book is a 2-in-1...not only is it scripts, it also includes scripture, Jana's personal anecdotes, and questions for reflection with each chapter to encourage discussion, making it a wonderful group or individual study.
Available on Amazon.com

On the personal side, she loves nature and takes advantage of this by hiking and traveling with her wonderful husband.

Sam Levenson
“For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.
We leave you a tradition with a future.
The tender loving care of human beings will never become obsolete.
People even more than things have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed and redeemed and redeemed.
Never throw out anybody.

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands: one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

Your “good old days” are still ahead of you, may you have many of them.”
