Janette Oke: A Heart for the Prairie

This books was given to me by my best friend. I have read almost all of Janette Oke’s books, and have loved her since I was 12 or 13. I can never get enough of her writing…

The book is all about Janette and her life… which is quite interesting. She grew up in Canada, and spent a good amount of time in America while her husband was schooling.

Her devotion to God is beautiful… there were many times when she heard the voice of God, and her faith in Him is something I aspire to have.

Here is a section from the book…

“Talent does not make a great person. It is responsibility that God has given us, whether in writing or music or organization or hospitality or instruction—and the list goes on and on. The only way to greatness is complete surrender to the God who wants our devotion—this I have learned from my mother.”

The book made me laugh, cry, and completely inspired me. If there is something that you want to do with your life that you always thought impossible… if it is good in God’s eyes, He will make that dream come true for you if you put your faith in Him, and work hard for it. Do it for God, not for man.

My question for You: What is something you have always wanted to do… dreamed of doing with your life?




I am a young girl in my teen years, pushing through life with the help and encouragement of my family and friends. But more than that, the Lord God is before me creating a path for me to follow. This blog shows my struggles and victories in life, the things I love or dislike. I hope you enjoy browsing through my blog. Before you leave, I hope you understand more fully how much the Lord Almighty means to me.
