Goodreads Author



My hubby, my mom, Bible, wonderful friends, and inspiring 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 (Kindle)

On the personal side, she loves nature, hiking, hot chocolate on a rainy day, great books, a good hearty laugh, and traveling with her wonderful husband.
