When one turns to the Lord, Life is Restored
"Defend the poor and fatherless; Do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy; Free them from the hand of the wicked."
Janet Marie NAPPER
FOUNDER, CEO & AUTHOR
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 (Click here to see books available). 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 Chief Executive Officer (CEO) 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 (Find out more about OAGW here).
