Janet Perez Eckles – Arise Speakers

With a unique flavor, Janet Perez Eckles will have your group cheering and celebrating their own path from trials to triumph.

Her physical blindness never stopped her from seeing life through Christ’s eyes. And her limitations don’t prevent her from demonstrating to her readers and audiences that the richness of life comes when we remove obstacles called excuses.

As Janet delivers the same passionate message to English- and Spanish-speaking audiences, she has shared the stage with John C. Maxwell, Lee Strobel, Nick Vijorcec, Thelma Wells and other popular speakers.

Although tragedy marked Janet’s journey, her contagious joy ignites a passion to turn fear to faith. She achieves this in her work as an international Award-winning Speaker, author of four books, including Simply Salsa: Dancing Without Fear at God’s Fiesta.

Her stories appear in Guidepost magazine, dozens of anthologies as well as in 32 Chicken Soup titles.

Janet is a radio host, Certified Spanish Interpreter, Christian life, missionary, women’s Sunday school teacher, founder and President of JC Empowerment Ministries.

God’s power in action in Janet’s life has attracted the media including programs such as the 700 Club, Enfoque en la Familia (Focus on the Family) and Despierta America (Good Morning America), Fox News affiliate, Univision and Telemundo networks.

Janet’s work has been recognized by receiving the following awards:

  • Professional Excellence Award
  • Women of Distinction Award
  • Latina Women Who Make a Difference Award
  • Beyond Me Award
  • Southeast Missouri State University Alumni Merit Award
  • The Writer’s View (online group)

Janet wants to ignite in others the ability to see beyond their own circumstances and reach joy-filled success.
