Wife, mother, writer, and speaker, Janet Ruth is passionate about encouraging Christians to truly live what they say they believe. Her books help Christians internalize their Christian beliefs so they influence their thoughts and actions every day.
Janet holds a master’s degree in Biblical Studies as well as a law degree and has written one novel and two Christian living books. She combines her love of research and her years of experience to teach important Christian doctrines and help her readers develop a strong Christian worldview.
An author, teacher, and life-long learner, Janet is a native and current resident of Arizona, but has lived outside Arizona twice—four years in Indiana and one in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Janet received her bachelor's degree from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix and a law degree from Arizona State University College of Law in Tempe, AZ. She practiced law for five years as an Assistant United States Attorney, handling criminal trials and appellate arguments, and then spent three years as a staff attorney for the Department of Veterans Affairs.
With two small children at home, Janet chose to become a (mostly) stay-at-home mom, but she still managed to teach Criminal and Constitutional Law classes part time at a community college, to volunteer at school events, and to teach Bible classes at her church. She even managed a high school robotics team for three years.
Janet started writing in the early 1990s and has self-published a novel and two Christian living books. In 2015, Janet completed a master's degree in Biblical Studies from Grand Canyon University in hopes of fueling a new start on her writing career. She is active in a local church, loves traveling with her husband and kids (who are both young adults now), and hopes to eventually find time to write another novel.
