Janet has been preparing for this journey her whole life! In 2006 she traveled to South Africa to meet a friend, little did she know an invitation would come; one she’d only dreamed about to that point in her life. After hearing her testimony, the pastor of the church her friend attended asked her to pray about helping the church established a home for abused women.

In 2007, Beit Shalom – meaning Place of Peace, was opened and five beautiful but deeply hurt women entered the home. Something else was born during that season; a crusade. Janet’s heart continued to overflow with love and concern for the countless women who were trapped in abusive relationships and situations who thought they could never have hope of a life of joy and freedom.

Her passion took her from church to church, radio to radio, ministry to ministry and home to home. As she networked with people and organizations all over South Africa, a greater vision was born; Global GoGirl. Janet desperately wanted to have a way to reach women around the world and tell them there is hope in Christ and there is freedom and liberty if they would leave their abusers, even in some cases their captor.

The book about her journey was released in 2012, Overcoming Abuse God’s Way, then curriculum to go along with the book that teaches others how to help abused people break free from the cycle of despair caused by those who have suffered such trauma at the hands of an abuser. Now training courses are available in communities wherever there is a willing heart. Now the ministry is branching out to Global GoBoy reaching men who have also been trapped in abusive situations.

The Founder and Executive Director of Overcoming Abuse God’s Way understands the cause and effects of abuse firsthand, Janet was orphaned at two after being abandoned in an apartment and left for dead. God had another plan for her life; she was discovered and rescued, then spent many years trying to find her real purpose in life. When God opened the door for her to begin to help others find healing from abuse she knew she’s found her purpose. Janet’s life is one of amazing grace. Her book, “Overcoming Abuse God’s Way, Rags to Riches,” tells of her life’s story that began with tragedy and led to triumph through Christ Jesus.

Founder and Executive Director, Janet Marie Napper is the proud mother of six children; Peter, Christopher, Tara and Richard and more recently Kenneth Jr. and Shelby. Between them all she is just as proud of her grandchildren; Christopher, Destiny, Robbin, Alexander, Giovanni, Mackenzie, Caden, Wyntre and Liam.

Janet Marie’s husband, Kenneth, is a testimony of God’s redemption and restoration from a life of abuse as well. Together they complete each other for themselves and the work of God. Kenneth’s heart is to be used of God to bring healing and restoration back to men for their families. He supports the calling of his wife Janet by prayer and giving to the ministry of Global GOGirl and as a Director for Global GoBoy for MEN. Together they pray daily for each other and thank God for His amazing love and faithfulness. Janet is a Chaplain and a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors, as well as an international radio host for Overcoming Abuse God’s Way Radio Program.
