Owning tools to transform your thoughts and execute your plans with purpose and power in EACH situation!
My journey began before my 30 + Years' marriage…
Just like many of you, as a single woman I invested in myself and my future. I had aspirations for my life, career and my family. After marrying ministry, I supported my husband in a variety of ways so that he could successfully do what God had called him to do.
I started my own career but my husband’s job was more important. However, I knew God had given me skills, gifts and abilities and that He created me to be MORE than a Pastor’s wife and something He wanted me to do to make a difference in the lives of others.
But, after my husband became a pastor,
My vision and goals were no longer a priority. I became sidetracked….
It is a challenge being authentic when you are criticized for simply being yourself.
Living in a fishbowl, you don’t have a safe place to take off your super cape.
There are very limited resources for women married to ministry to equip you along your journey.
There are even more limited safe spaces beyond therapy where you can share your fears and dreams without running the risk of exposure.
I set out on a mission to create a safe space for ministry wives so they can emerge from the shadows and reclaim their own life calling.
Walking beside their husband without becoming a distraction to the ministry!
I have integrated all that I have learned and applied along the way in my signature process- Chosen Pearls!

After experiencing a devastating divorce as a pastor’s wife, I enrolled in Janice’s coaching program. By working with Janice, I was better able to navigate through my divorce. She provided a nurturing, judgment-free environment for me to heal from the shock hurt, frustration, and disappointment associated with divorce. In our time together I learned that God could use my pain to make a difference in the lives of others. Now I am using my God-given gifts to focus on the spiritual transformation of men and women through sustainable programs which fund Kingdom projects in the areas of Homelessness, World Hunger, Domestic Violence, and Human Trafficking. - Rev. Sheila Tolbert

"If you are married to ministry or embarking on the journey of being a pastor's wife, Dr. Janice’s coaching program is definitely for you!
Chosen Pearls has a structure that is easy to follow and has just the right mix of guidance and personal introspection. It is deep work, but it is life-affirming work. This program has quieted my overwhelm and set me on a path to be more confident in my identity as a believer, an individual, and a wife. Invest in yourself and TAKE. THIS. PROGRAM!"

"During the pandemic, I was overwhelmed with feelings of losing my voice in my marriage and in ministry. I decided to join Dr. Janice's Chosen Pearls program to discover my voice and platform.
I use this knowledge now to make decisions and to evaluate my responses to important situations. I love the program mainly because it helped me to really see my true strengths. Also how to deal with the shadows in my life. Dr. Love really made it an easy process to go through. I am so glad that I invested in myself."

"The program addressed many areas I had not gotten over mentally. Now I am more aware of Satan’s tactics. I can recognize and transform my thoughts when Satan tries to attack me. The homework gave me a new outlook on different situations.
I no longer waste my mental energies trying to control everyone else’s life. One of the greatest benefits I received from coaching, was I am a better helpmate to my husband and can freely show him more love and affection and let him know he is appreciated and loved. By developing my purpose platform statement, I quit trying to do everything and I have a clear focus on how to use the gifts God has given me. I can’t wait for Dr. Janice's coming retreat!"

"As soon as I heard Janice was offering another coaching program, I signed up immediately. I was ready to get the clarity I needed to do what God created me to do.
After being a part of her coaching program I gained the clarity and the confidence to fulfill my calling of hosting an ongoing community Prayer Gathering. I am standing boldly on my own platform without the fear of being a distraction to my husband’s ministry. He is one of my biggest fans and supporters in my journey.
By providing a safe environment for me to rise above the expectations of others and to share my own dreams, I finally have the tools I needed to implement my purpose.
