My name is Janis. I am a Christian woman with a creative spirit. I am a stay at home mom and wife. I love crafts, puzzles, singing, reading and very much into writing, cooking and baking gluten free foods.

Feeling positive this year is a year of good change and setting a plan to jump back on that weight-loss bus. My family prayed together this morning and we are looking forward to eating smarter and being more active.

Thanking God every moment! He is gracious and merciful and I love walking with Him every day! God bless!

I am learning to be more creative in the kitchen, not just with meals, but with gluten free and sugar free (mostly) baking.

Other Information:
This is one of my favorite quotes:
"Each of us may be a diamond-in-the-rough, needing only a muse and a change in circumstance to go from humble caterpillar to majestic butterfly." - Peter Whitmer, Ph.D. ~from The Inner Elvis: A Psychological Biography of Elvis Aaron Presley

I am inspired by God and all he has created; by my family and friends, by people such as Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Johnny Depp, among a few others.

I love most kinds of music except death metal. I like romantic comedies, comedies, adventure, thriller, and drama movies. I love Disney and Pixar films.

My hobbies are writing, reading, crafts, scrapbooking, playing online games on Facebook, gardening, going for walks, hiking, fishing, horseback riding, four wheeling, snowmobiling, cooking, baking, interior decoration, listening to music, watching movies, and those are just a start.
