She welcomed the kids into her life as her own kids. She was such a loving and supportive wife to Ronnie and mother to her kids.
During the first several years after they married, Janet worked at Heritage Christian Academy which was part of Dallas Christian College where Ronnie served as Vice President.

Janet was not only a wonderful preacher’s wife, but she also led bible studies and spoke at Christian women’s conferences. Upon their return to the Dallas area in 2007, she and Ronnie attended Cornerstone Christian Church in Dallas, TX where Ronnie served as an elder and where Janet continued to be a member until her death. After Ronnie’s death in 2012, Janet worked as an Administrative Assistant in the Admissions office of Dallas Christian College until she retired in May of 2018.
