Janelle Green the author

For many reasons, I am very proud of my mother. To name just one, she is a newly published author and you are welcomed to purchase her book on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc. "This Earthly Tent" was a work in progress for several years and could not have been completed but for the efforts of her dear friend and cousin, Mary Anne Allread. Some of it reads as a story, while much of it is taken from journal entries she made throughout her long struggle with Multiple Sclerosis.
I must admit, it was rather hard for me to read. It served as a stark reminder of my own oversights and self- centeredness. Yet, I was also inspired that in the center of turmoil there is victory in Christ. In the midst of destruction, there is peace- if you seek Him.

Here's the synopsis of the book:

"Janelle Green was a vibrant young wife and mother in 1975. She and her husband Rick had two wonderful little boys and had just welcomed their beautiful little adopted daughter from Vietnam. They were like many other ordinary young families when suddenly her life took on a whole new dimension. She was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, a disease that affects the central nervous system.
This is her story—a story of strength, determination and a profound faith in God, a faith that has enabled her to live a life that is an inspiration to us all. In her own words, she tells of her struggles, her triumphs, her dark days and her optimism. Through it all, she relied on her strong belief in God and the promises in His Word. Her book will be a blessing to all readers."
Mom hopes that her story will give others hope, through her positive attitude, her optimism and her belief in God's promise that there are better days ahead. I believe that. She demonstrates it daily.
