What People Are Saying
Pastor Janet DeCaster is a gifted communicator both in her writing; the books she has published, her blog posts "A Samaritan Woman Speaks", and in her public speaking! The depth of her knowledge of God's Word, her quick wit, and her story-telling ability make her a sought after teacher in Bible Schools, as well as a seminar speaker, a guest speaker at church services, retreats, and conferences. She is an ordained minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, has served as the Women's Pastor of Eden Prairie AOG. She previously served as the Pastor of Prayer Ministries for RAIN - Resurrection Apostolic International Network and IAHM -International Association of Healing Ministries and also as a volunteer in many other capacities.
Janet DeCaster has begun her writing career with two books that are quite different. ‘God Speaks’ is an excellent study guide to the Acts of the Apostles, giving both insights into the message and meaning of the book and practical challenges for Christian growth. ‘Dog Tales and Pup Parables’ is a delightful book containing 31 devotionals that come from lessons we can learn from our four-legged friends. I commend these books. Read them and they will bless you as you do.
