About Janet Drez
Janet is real, approachable and enthusiastic as she shares from her heart and from the Word of God. God has challenged her to go deep in her relationship with Him and to lead others on their faith journey, using the attributes of the octopus as a unique and profound word-picture. Who would have thought?!
Janet lives by the verses in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (“Be joyful always, pray without ceasing and give thanks in all circumstances.”) and has a passion for prayer and for encouraging women to be all that God intends for them to be. Biblically based and well researched, Janet’s presentations encourage and inspire women nationally at women’s retreats, seminars, conferences and special events.
A wife, mother, and Christian women’s speaker, Janet is also the women’s ministry director at Arizona Community Church in Tempe, Arizona. She is also the author of Putting the Pieces Together: A Christian Woman’s Guide to a Successful Home-Based Business and the Octopus Faith® audio CD Bible study.
