Hi! I’m Jan.
I’m a Bible teacher, author, and speaker, and I am passionate about connecting women to Jesus.
When I was growing up, my dad used to say, “Every day is a new day to Jan,” and it’s true. No matter what happened the day before, every day is new to me. Like you, I’ve had some great highs and some very difficult lows. In those hard times, Jesus always holds and comforts me.
If you would have told my mother I would become a writer, she would have gotten so tickled. She was a very particular English teacher, and everything I wrote made her want to pull her hair out! I was a “life is a bowl of cherries” kind of a girl. Fun, carefree, and the life of the party, I met my straight-laced, Baptist future husband at 18. We married at 20 and began going to church. I went through the motions, but I became a true believer at 24.
I love teaching women the Bible and seeing the light bulb come on. One time, I was preparing to speak to a group of women leaders, when I asked the Lord what to teach on. Immediately, He gave me the picture of us being the Bride of Christ. I am a hopeless romantic, so this spoke to my heart. I dove into studying Jesus as our Bridegroom, and it wooed me into a more intimate relationship with Him.
My husband always says I am full of surprises. No one is as surprised as we are that I’m writing, but Jesus isn’t surprised. He took my love for Him, my love for the Word, my love for women, and turned it into this ministry.
Each of us has hidden qualities that Jesus is waiting to bring out. As you linger here and enjoy my writing, I hope you come to understand Jesus as your Bridegroom and the depth of love He has for you.
To request me to speak at your event or reach out to me at all, please send me a message here.

I’ve got the most encouraging news for you!
Say Yes to the Bridegroom: God’s eternal love story — written just for you!
I’ve got the most encouraging news for you! The most divine love story ever written was penned thousands of years ago and it is all about you. Yes, you.
Wherever you are in life at this very moment — no matter your marital status — I suspect that there has always been a deep longing for an unconditional love you somehow hope exists. It does! The God of the universe has invited you to a wedding and not just any wedding — your ultimate wedding — the wedding of the Lamb to His bride. That invitation is seen throughout the Bible. It is revealed through the analogy of ancient Jewish wedding traditions of the Old Testament, culminating in Revelations of the New Testament revealing Christ as our Bridegroom.
This book reveals the hidden gems in the Bible that illuminate the life Christ has prepared for you as his bride and how they pertain to us today. Who is the matchmaker? What is the role of the father? What are the love gifts from the bridegroom? What are our rights and promises? Be prepared to be surprised and enlightened. Be prepared to be loved.
This compelling true-life narrative will give you a deeper understanding of God’s heart for His people and the glorious future we can look forward to. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. Open the pages and read on as I invite you to say yes to the Bridegroom who has prepared a place just for you!
