Meet Janie!

Janie is one of the six ladies at Protected Harbor’s first house. When you first visit the home, you won’t be surprised if Janie wants to show you her room. Her love for animals ever-present has an electronic cat that purrs and reacts to her touching it. Janie loves “Snuggles” very much and loves to introduce her to every visitor.

Janie is part of the wonderful community of women who live at Protected Harbor, which provides a caring and nurturing environment in a loving, Christian home.  The ladies work together to help out in the household.  Together they plan dinner with the staff, including checking for recipe ingredients, shopping for needed items, and preparing the meals.  Janie recently made a 3-bean salad and chicken in the crockpot for everyone to enjoy.

Other volunteer activities that Janie engages in are the prayer shawl ministry at McGregor Baptist Church and the Church Prayer team.  Because of Janie’s love of prayer, she was invited to join the prayer team to pray for the Sunday services and she is regarded as the Prayer Warrior of the group.

Janie is an avid exerciser and uses the elliptical trainer in the home’s workout room every day.  She also loves to knit and crochet and takes pleasure in presenting staff and visitors with her handmade gifts.

We are so grateful that the ladies have this home to provide them with opportunities for community fellowship and an environment that allows them to deepen their relationships with each other and God. Please pray that these ladies continue to be blessed in a home where they feel loved, respected, and needed, and where they can grow spiritually and emotionally.
