Janice Davis


My name is Janice Davis. Twelve years ago the Holy Spirit instructed me to write a book titled "Face to Face With God: Healing the Cry Within", but this was only the beginning of my ministry. Now I write devotionals as a part of a ministry aimed at helping people overcome overwhelming odds in their lives.

I understand how difficult life can be when you don't know where to turn. I also know God wants to see us become emotionally well and spiritually sound that we may enjoy a life of peace and joy.

This ministry was established upon the principles that the Word of God is infallible and that Jesus Christ is the son of the Living God. Each day I ask God to give me a "Word" that will be a source of encouragement to you, the reader, providing spiritual nourishment to begin your day.

Not only do I want to encourage you, but I want to teach you how to cultivate a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through the practice of His Holy Word. My prayer is that you grow leaps and bounds in your faith as you seek to know His ways.

I have experienced a lot of disappointment and trouble during the course of my life and I understand the difficulty in tackling the tough issues we face. At the tender age of 5 years old, I lost the most important influence in my life, my mother. A year later my father placed me and two of my siblings in a children’s home... I lived there until I graduated from high school in 1981. I was bullied by my peers, experienced painful rejections, felt hopeless and abandoned, and I experienced fears of all kinds. I lacked personal identity that caused me to question my self-worth and even my worth in God’s eyes. I struggled to understand how God could love someone as unlovable as me.

I have personally spent the past 21 years becoming emotionally and spiritually whole; preparing to offer words of hope that lead others to Jesus Christ. My chief desire is to offer encouragement and hope to you, using my own life experiences about emotional healing and health in hopes that you too may experience God's amazing grace. I pray your faith grows stronger with each passing day and that you come to know the hope of His calling in Christ Jesus.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I didn't discover my writing talent until five years ago. I wrote a book with another author in 2012 titled "Face to Face With God: Healing the Cry Within". We went through the process of trying to have it published, but soon realized the difficulty in having a traditional publisher pick up the book. We decided to self-publish. Unfortunately, at that time, I didn't know about Smashwords. A friend of mine ran across an article in our local newspaper about indie writers. He clipped the article out for me to read. I was fascinated by the ease of having a book published, and the fact, there are undiscovered writers who are making a good living through their writing. I decided to give it a try.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Well, I'm just getting started. I'm in the final phase of editing my third book titled "Unmasking the Spirit of Shame: Breaking Free from the Past". I've read the blogs on Smashwords on how to be successful and I plan to follow their advice.
