Serving the Christian community with resources for pastor families, church leaders and Christian living.


JaniceMy name is Janice Hildreth. I am a wife to Mike, a pastor’s wife to Victory Church, the mother of Jana, David, and Jenn, mother-in-law to Ken, Curtis, and Cora; Nana to Jaxson who resides in Heaven and Gabriel who is 6 months old. I am a writer, mentor, friend, lover, and office clerk, plus many other monikers too numerous to mention.

Like you, my life is a constant teeter-totter between what I want to do and what I have to do. Two quotes that allow me to balance the demands are: “If you want something done, ask a busy person to do it.” (Lucille Ball) and “Keeping house is like threading beads on a string with no knot.” (Erma Bombeck). Which I translate into: I can always make time for something I like, and don’t sweat the small stuff.

Just like you, I have dreams. Since I was small, I have loved words. Words are the perfect vehicle to express love, anger, despair, laughter, and every other emotion known to humankind. Their power is far reaching and lasting. How could you not be impressed? So from childhood I have journaled, adored essay questions, and thought term papers were a special treat for enduring boring classes.

I sold my first article to a now-defunct women’s magazine in 1979 and it fueled a life-long dream to be a full time writer. I am now living my full-time writing dream — accompanied by a second full-time day job and a multitude of additional interests and activities.

The result of this schizophrenic lifestyle is a finely-honed gift for time management and writing discipline. I wrote my first book, What Would the Bible Say? in 2003 for AdamsMedia while working full-time, helping pastor a church, and with three teens and a husband in the house that still needed Mom’s touch.

Over the years I have written Sunday school lessons, devotionals and plays. I began a 6-page monthly newsletter for pastors’ wives in 1993 to offer “practical and spiritual encouragement to women married to ministers.” When webpages came along I learned to blog. Through it all, I have exercised my love for words.

I hope you will check back again and again with me. This site is to introduce myself and to order products. I have two blogs which you may enjoy: My author blog is JaniceHildreth.com, and my pastor’s wife blog is PastorsWife.com

I hope you will check back again and drop me a line.

God bless,
