Home life (Family, pets, etc.): As a former history/government teacher with an Associate’s degree in English, I enjoy speaking to church and civic groups, offering hope and humor in every message. I am a trained vocalist, have recorded two records with my family, and written several songs. My husband Kevin and I relocated from Los Angeles to Paris, IL. in 1999 to pastor Nevins Christian Church. We are still trying to adjust to the frigid winters, but love the warm country folks. Kevin and I are Mom and Dad to two adults, grandparents to three children, and servants to four cats.

What’s your blog/website(s)? www.jeanettelevellie.com
Why do you blog? To connect with people, to have fun, to give away prizes, to encourage others.
What do you hope to accomplish with blogging? Encourage my friends, enrich their lives with laughter, and help them know God better.
What’s the latest goings-on that you would want others to know about? I just published my first book, Two Scoops of Grace with Chuckles on Top, and it’s already an Amazon bestseller! I finished the rough draft of my second book, called the Heart of Humor, a funny look at how laughter helps us in every area of our lives.
Any words of encouragement or wisdom to impart? God’s grace is deeper than your past; His love is kinder than your conscience, and Jesus got beat up for you, so you don’t have to beat yourself up.
