Bolivian immigrant Janet Perez Eckles will be the last woman you would expect to dance for joy.

• She lost her eyesight at age 31
• Suffered financial devastation
• Endured infidelity
• Lost her 19-year-old son to murder and saw the acquittal of the man responsible

Yet with God's grace, Janet has learned to dance. Her healing journey has enriched her ability to minister to others as a teacher, group leader, writer, and public speaker.

Janet is the author of Trials of Today, Treasures for Tomorrow: Overcoming Adversities in Life, and has contributed to more than 20 books, including the Chicken Soup for the Soul series and Guideposts. Her experiences have been shared in The New York Times, The New York Daily News, Hispanic Times, The St. Louis Post Dispatch, El Nuevo Dia, and The Orlando Sentinel.

When she is not traveling to her next speaking engagement, Janet makes her home in Orlando, Florida.
