      I have actually read this book before but didn't review it. It's just as good the second time round and a deviation from Grisham's usual legal mystery/thrillers.

Promotion in Motion: Simply Salsa with Janet Perez Eckles

Posted by Lisa Lickel on August 16, 2011

Janet Perez Eckles

As a young girl, Janet packed dreams and expectations when she left Bolivia to come to America. She found not only wonder and beauty in her new life, but also the challenge to overcome trials—physical blindness, marital infidelity, financial devastation, the loss of her son and the acquittal of the man responsible.

But rather than despair, Christ’s love ushered victory for each battle, giving her wisdom to overcome adversity, rekindling her zeal for life and
ushering peace for each moment. These victories sparked her mission to inspire and encourage others. As a bilingual Spanish inspirational speaker, she ignites in her audiences the same passion to triumph, to find purpose in life and achieve professional and personal success.

Janet earned her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Southeast Missouri State University. After graduation, she met Gene, her husband of 35 years. They live in Orlando, FL where they enjoy their sons, daughter-in-law, and grandchildren.

Janet serves as a women’s Sunday school teacher and a ministry leader at South Orlando Baptist Church.

Janet’s Message

My presentations ignite in you the passion to overcome. I inspire both English-and Spanish-speaking audiences. I was honored to receive the “Latina Woman Who Makes A Difference Award 2011.”

Simply Salsa: Dancing Without Fear at God’s Fiesta, will be  released in August 2011 by Judson Press. In a warm amiga-to-amiga
style, Janet reveals the secret even Victoria doesn’t know – how to dance to God’s melody to triumph over heartache and fear.

What keeps women from dancing to the freedom God offers?

With passion and boldness, Simply Salsa exposes the lies and  misconceptions that imprison women with unfounded insecurities and feelings of inadequacy. No matter the degree of adversity or pain, Janet  Eckles has discovered an alternative to gloom—through the security that is only found in God’s love.

When women in the Bible faced tribulations and trials, they sought God’s grace. Simply Salsa illustrates how that same grace offers today’s  women the opportunity to:

  • Leave the ugly past behind and look to a fresh tomorrow
  • Find peace and increased faith as you wait for answers to prayer
  • Embrace God’s comfort to conquer sorrow and disappointment

With a bit of sassiness, a touch of humor, and an amiga-to-amiga style, Simply Salsa encourages women to accept God’s call to dance!

Janet’s book released last week to great acclaim, making #1 on Amazon’s best seller list. Buy your copy here.

Janet is also the author of Trials of Today, Treasures of Tomorrow.
