More About Janet Eckles


Blindness didn’t slow her down, nor tragedy stop her. As an author, international speaker, and founder of JC Empowerment Ministries, Janet Perez Eckles gives a new meaning to God-given victory and success.

She overcame not only the loss of her eyesight at 30, but endured the loss of her youngest son to violence as well as the acquittal of the man responsible. But rather than sink as a victim, each episode from which she rose above showcases the value of faith, forgiveness and tenacity.

Though her life includes tragedy, her message and her books showcase God’s power to restore any setback, heal any heartache and calm any storm. (Use this LINK for a two-minute introductory video showcasing what Janet can bring to your next event.)

Without physical eyesight, but with a clear vision, she travels across the U.S. and internationally to empower her English- and Spanish-speaking audiences.

In addition to her own five books, her writings include 32 stories in Chicken Soup for the Soul titles, Guidepost Magazine, dozens of anthologies, Crosswalk.com and hundreds of print and online magazines.

The media captures her compelling story as she’s been featured on the cover of Hispanic Woman Magazine, 700 Club, Desperate America (Good Morning America), Lifestyle Magazine and Focus on the Family as well as dozens of national and regional media.

Janet’s work has been recognized by numerous awards including the Lifetime Achievement from the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Central Florida, Latina Women who make a difference, Beyond Me Award, Professional Excellence and first runner-up for the Ms. Senior Florida pageant.

Janet resides in Florida with her husband Dale, her adult children and delightful grandchildren.

You leave the audience with hope, inspiration, and encouragement so that they can make it through any circumstance if they learn to live a life of forgiveness, determination and total trust in God.

At twelve years old, Janet and her family left Bolivia for St. Louis, Missouri, their suitcases filled with dreams of a happy life in the United States. But cruel reality awaited. Complete blindness by age thirty, a tragically broken marriage, the murder of her youngest son, the acquittal of his killer were each enough to drown any woman in a tempest of heartache and despair. But God did not leave His child lost and adrift. Instead, the lowest points of her devastation became God’s divine...
