Hi. I'm Janet Roller: wife of one, mother of two, lover of coffee and writer of songs. I have just finished my first fiction novel and I'm looking forward to watching how God uses the simple story to minister to others. God is a big deal to me. My goal each day is to wake up and declare, "This day is Yours, Lord. Show me what to do with it."

TSMS - Blessed Be The Name of the LORD

This week has been such a mix of ups and downs! It really has been a "Roller" coaster. Last Monday, Matt was a victim of our economy...that's right...downsized. Yuck.

Just a few days later, I received thrilling, long-awaited news...I officially have a literary agent! The proposal for a new book went out to Christian publishers and already received positive response! Yeah.

Our health insurance ended 2 weeks ago. Yuck.

The Bible study I'm leading, "Discerning the Voice of God," began with great response. Yeah.

Matt continues to follow-up on leads: some with positive response.

Please join me in praying that God's Will be VERY EVIDENT in our lives during these times. We are united in our passion to please Him. We will CHOOSE to say, "Blessed be the name of the LORD!"

Check out more TSMS with Amy!

I think in these tough economic times, we have to really make sure that our faith is firm and that even in the hard times we know where our help comes from & who has our lives in His hand. He has a plan for our lives no matter what. So glad that in the midst of the unknown...you are still blessing His name.

First time visitor to your blog, but we can be on a God watch together as the Lord provides jobs for our husbands. My husband's job will end in a few months as his company is moving to Houston and we are choosing not to. With five children, and the impending lack of insurance, I enter this with you as we patiently wait for the BIG REVEAL in all that God is going to do with our families. :)

I will keep y'all in my prayers as Matt continues to follow up on leads...praying that God will lead him where he needs to be.

I am so happy for you! Way to go, girl!!
