WHERE TO FIND HOPE: Janet K. Brown, author of Worth Her Weight



Janet K. Brown lives in Wichita Falls, Texas with her husband, Charles. Writing became her second career after retirement from medical coding.

     Worth Her Weight will be the author’s debut inspirational women’s fiction, but it makes a perfect companion to her recently released, Divine Dining: 365 Devotions to Guide You to Healthier Weight and Abundant Wellness. Both books encompass her passion for diet, fitness, and God’s Word.
Worth Her Weight marks Brown’s third book. Who knew she had a penchant for teens and ghosts? She released her debut novel, an inspirational young adult, Victoria and the Ghost, in July, 2012.
     Janet and her husband love to travel with their RV, visit their three daughters, two sons-in-law and three perfect grandchildren, and work in their church. Find her at http:/ / on Twitter, @janetkbrowntx , on Facebook @!/pages/Janet-K-Brown-Author/143915285641707

Thy Will Be Done


The Lord’s prayer states, “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

That’s the secret that Lacey Chandler—along with her childhood boyfriend and her mother—from Worth Her Weight must learn to find hope. It’s also the secret I had to grasp to obtain emotional healing. Now, twenty years since God miraculously healed me, I still must pray daily, “Let my will, my life, my choices be yours, Lord.” Praise God for one step at a time with Him in charge.

My power equals destruction.
God’s power equals victory.

I pray Lacey’s journey will remind you that:     I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Phil: 4:13

Our will power can become won’t power without Christ.
     The driving force behind our white-knuckled, clenched-teeth “no” can just as well shift over and fuel the mania to swallow more and more and everything.
From a Hazelden Publication booklet “When Willpower is Not Enough.”

My 4 “S” Motto for Success

Strive toward a decision to follow Christ in all things.
Stretch toward God’s excellence, not man’s approval.
Surrender to God’s will, not ours.

Succeed in keeping communication lines open with God.


How can a woman who gives to everyone but herself accept God’s love and healing when she believes she’s fat, unworthy, and unfixable? Can she be Worth Her Weight?
     LACEY CHANDLER helps her mother, her sister, her friend, and then she binges on food and wonders is there really a God?
     BETTY CHANDLER hates being handicapped and useless, so she lashes out at the daughter that helps, and the God who doesn’t seem to care.
     TOBY WHEELER loves being police chief in Wharton Rock, but when the devil invades the small town, he can’t release control.
Is God enough in Wharton Rock?
