Yesterday I met a man who was actually an angel. Angels seem to come out of nowhere, and always when least expected. I had just experienced a beautiful hike up Provo Canyon, full of rich conversation, grand views and self-reflection. And because I ran out of time to change before I met this angel, I…

Hi, I’m Janae.

As a Mother of six daughters and one son, our family life has always been busy and looks something like organized chaos! My mission is to share bits and pieces of this story, in hopes that it will encourage you to find your voice and share it with others. We all have a message that can bless the world around us, and the first step is to figure out what to say.
