Janet was two years old when her family began attending First Christian Church, a new church plant in Beardstown, IL. She has seen many changes over the years, including the addition of Beardstown Christian Academy in 1981, a ministry she has been involved in since the beginning, currently serving on the school board.
Janet and her husband Bill have been married since 1970. They are the parents of three grown sons: Will (MaryEllen), Karl (Tammee) and Wells (Kayla) and four grandchildren: Walker, Stella, Wyatt and Alixandra.
Her life’s mission statement is: That I would live my life in such a way that people would see more of Jesus and less of me.
