Sandra Allen Lovelace – Arise Speakers

Sandra Allen Lovelace was a wallflower woman for more than fifty years. No longer. Her transformation has taken her from a hesitant country mouse to an adventurous world traveler, speaker, author, and mentor. Sandra’s been a homeschool mom, pastor’s wife, and missionary, and has served women in more than fifty countries. She holds degrees in education and communication arts.
A transparent speaker and biblical teacher, Sandra’s known for her as much for her practicality and humor as her dramatic portrayals of heroic women. She’s currently the Before & After cover girl at the website of image consultant Jill Swanson. In addition to being a member of AWSA, she’s a graduate of Christian Communicators with Vonda Skelton and Carolyn Knefly.
Sandra loves to travel—although having a camera in her hand makes any day a vacation. She’s been married to her husband Curt for fifty years. They have two married daughters and three delightful grandchildren. They are in the process of relocating to South Carolina.

Janet Holm McHenry – Arise Speaker

Janet is widely known as an insightful, hilarious, and personable speaker—someone who will make you laugh but also someone who will give you a fresh perspective on God’s Word so as to lighten your load. She is a national speaker and author of 23 books, six of those on prayer. You may have heard of her best-selling book PrayerWalk that inspired a feature article in Health magazine, as well as others in magazines such as Family Circle and Catholic Digest. Her newest book on prayer, The Complete Guide to the Prayers of Jesus (release date: June 5, 2018) is the only comprehensive book on the prayer life of Jesus. Her business name is Looking Up! because that is what she enjoys doing most: encouraging others to turn to God through prayer and a deeper spiritual walk. Janet experienced dramatic changes in her life as a result of her prayerwalking, as well as countless answers to prayer in her community. She and her husband Craig have raised four children in the Sierra Valley, where he is a rancher and where she formerly taught English at the high school. Janet serves as the director of prayer ministries in nearby Reno at The Bridge Church, where she also leads a First Place 4 Health group and has served on the church board. In her hometown in the Sierra Valley, she serves on the board of The Sierra Schools Foundation, a nonprofit organization that brings financial resources to her community’s rural schools. In the summers you can find Janet kayaking with Craig on mountain lakes, and in the winter she’s keeping the scorebook at home basketball games. In all of her life’s pursuits, though, you will see that she is Looking Up! . . . and she would love to speak at your next event.
