Janet Perez Eckles she/her/hers
Igniting your passion to overcome.

She’s been called a powerhouse of motivation. Janet Perez Eckles earned that label through her work as an award-winning author, international speaker, radio host, and founder of JC Empowerment ministries. Janet brings her Latina flair and passion for life to connect her with both her Spanish and English readers and audiences. Janet’s writing and speaking showcase her victorious life which began at 30 when she faced the unthinkable. While a mom to three small sons, she experienced complete blindness due to the retinal disease, Retinitis Pigmentosa. Years later her youngest son was tragically murdered and the man responsible was set free. And decades later, her husband’s abandonment threatened to defeat her. But rather than live as a victim, Janet thrives in victorious success. She travels the globe helping thousands to overcome fear, rise-above setbacks and live triumphantly.

Through her writing and keynote messages, Janet illustrates that, no matter the setback, a blend of tenacity and faith bring unique success.

Janet has authored five books, including award-winning, Now I See!

Her stories also appear in 32 Chicken Soup for the Soul bestselling titles, dozens of anthologies, and hundreds of magazine articles.

In addition to being featured on the cover of Hispanic Woman Magazine, Janet was a guest on Fox 35 News affiliates, the Spanish sister network of Good Morning America, the 700 Club, Focus on the Family, Univision, and Telemundo networks, along with regional, national, and international radio and television outlets.

She shared the stage with respected speakers John C. Maxwell, Lee Strobel, Governor Mike Huckabee, Priscilla Shirer, and Nick Vijorcec. Janet earned her Bachelor Degree from Southeast Missouri State University where years later, she was invited back to receive the 2016 Alumni of the Year Award.

Janet dances the salsa of gratitude in the sunshine state with her new husband, Dale, where they create memories with their adult children and delightful grandchildren.
