Jan is a Christian who has journeyed through grief, loss, and depression by God's faithfulness and grace.
She has been married for over forty years to her prince, and they have two adult daughters. Teaching is the family business--Jan has recently retired from teaching English to high school students with learning disabilities, and both daughters are also teachers.
A terrible accident in her youngest daughter's late teens was the event that sent Jan into depression, as the family dealt with the emotional and physical difficulty of living with a loved one with a spinal cord injury. Thanks be to God--who has graced the entire family with emotional and spiritual healing.
She enjoys playing piano, reading, traveling, sparring with the cat, and practicing social justice.
