Happiest of holidays this 2016 season to all of you! The lovely graphic above was sent by Ermal and Paula Williamson in a recent email to the webmaster and their other fans.
Due to an equipment addition this summer, we were taking a sabbatical from this site until now. We just moved the interesting articles on this page to other pages to "clear the decks" for the latest news regarding Janet and her mentees or colleagues.
Many you can find on our Features Page here. Others, related to Janet's mentees, can be found on their tribute pages. Blessings!

December 7th is just around the corner, and on that day we think, of course, of Pearl Harbor. Earlier this year, Janet sent the picture above dated December 7th, 1941, and a bit of the story behind it. You can see both by going to our Patsy Montana page here. Remember Pearl Harbor!
Two Songs from
Janet's New CD
"Here I Am!"
Picking sample songs from Janet's new CD was a difficult task, as there were so many favorites. Chosen were two that were not already on this website. You can click the little speaker icons to listen.
Who Is this Jesus Person?
Like You Did
Note from the webmaster on "hurtin' songs:" on the inside of Janet's CD, Tex and Mary Schutz refer, with great reverence, to Janet's "crying-hurting" songs. After years of theological studies, this webmaster would like to point out that these songs suggest a Standard of Right-ness.
In each one that Janet wrote, there is the teaching that a happy relationship, with loyalty and dedication, are the Right way to enjoy Romance. Congratulations to Janet for finally meeting her John Ingram--who fulfilled, for her, that teaching.
We will forego placing these on our Audio Page until after the webmaster has upgraded his computer system.

There is a story to tell about "Here I Am" -- why Janet chose the songs she did, where they came from, and more. We plan to present that story, in detail, after the webmaster upgrades his computer system.
Janet's Original Song
"A Cowgirl's Dream"
Featuring Patsy Montana
A Video on YouTube!
Says Janet: This is just finished. Mary Schutz did the work. The young girl is Mikki Daniel.
Check out all of the clips of Patsy which are some of the stuff we pulled from the 16mm and 8mm film in her closet. Just too cool.
You can view this video by clicking here.
You can see what Mikki wrote about Janet in her "First-Quarter" 2014 Newsletter on our new Mikki Daniel tribute page here.
There are, obviously, many things to add about the making of this video. As with the new CD above, that information will be coming soon. In the meantime, you can see what Janet wrote about the creation of her song "Yodeler's Dream" (posted on Roy Tucker's website) by clicking this link.

On December 22, 2010, Janet's husband John Ingram went
home to be with the Lord. Just a few days before that, he was with Janet and their granddaughter when this photo was taken. Here are Janet's words:
We all commented that night at how great John looked and how he was able to climb the stairs at the restaurant and how happy he was.
I had not seen this photo until last week. I did not take the camera that night but this photo was taken by Devri McBride. It was her Birthday dinner at a restaurant in Dallas.
How cool is that photo?
You can see all of our tribute information regarding John by clicking either here or on the menu button to the upper left entitled "John." Thank you, Devri, for sharing that picture!
MORE ON JANET
This webmaster is sorry, but, as explained in our ordering sections on this page and the Orders page, the forms we used to use to contact Janet were generating from 50-75 spam Emails a day. Each one had to be examined closely in case it came from you, one of Janet's fans.
We have therefore removed the forms, but left the Emails with which to contact Janet or Pat Boileson, Fan Club President. We've also included product price information on Janet's new CD, "Here I Am."

Our Janet is far too busy to maintain a Twitter account herself, but this webmaster posts photos of her under the HeroesWest brand.
