I guess this is the space where I’m supposed to brag about myself a little? My name is Janine. I’m 30 years old. I am currently employed as a Home Support Worker (other employment ventures include retail and waitressing), and trusting God with the big dreams. I grew up in a small town in Newfoundland, and in recent years, have grown to rather love its quiet nature. I have no diplomas, degrees, titles or major accomplishments to boast about; but I do have Jesus, and He is enough.
As a child, I always had a passion for helping others rise above their circumstances. I was diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder when I was 13, and though I struggled with anxiety and depression for a lot of my life, I always believed that through the bad the good would shine. I believed that pain was always laced with even greater gain.
Flash forward to 2016–the year I found Christ. Since then, I have remained just as passionate as ever about people; however, my motivation has evolved so much since then. My motivation has matured from empowerment endeavors to evangelistic endeavors. I desire to see every heart sold out for Jesus, and believe that in Christ is life and life abundant.
I would definitely consider myself an old soul at heart. In fact, I am the epitome of an introvert. I need copious amounts of quiet time to function and function happily. I enjoy reading, writing, picture taking, quiet reflection and all things creative. I enjoy deep-woods hiking and all things nature. I thrive on ridiculous amounts of coffee and herbal tea. Oh, and I’m completely obsessed with traveling the world. I love to explore the vast, diverse beauty God’s beautiful and wondrous creation, and there’s really nothing quite like immersing yourself in other cultures and ways of life.
Though there are many who have accomplished far more than I have at 30, I have been truly blessed. I am passionate about sharing my life and my testimony that others may feel the loving touch of Christ overflow into, and captivate their own hearts. This is the life God chose specifically for me, and it is my honor to live it, love it and embrace it. Won’t you come along with me?
