Sometimes God has a way of changing your plans. After beginning her career in higher education and on the trajectory to retire one day from her career, Jeaninne's life was going fine until she heard the call to step away to prepare for a new career in ministry as a full-time Christian author and Bible-teacher.
After much deliberation and prayer, In 2002, Jeaninne answered the call.
