Hi, I’m Janell.
Although the “j” in @mrsjgarwood actually stands for Jason, my husband. As I am Mrs. Jason Garwood. Jason is the one whom my soul loves and we’ve been married for 16 1/2 years. I feel that each year I am growing more & more into the wife that God wants me to be. But I am a work in process, continually being sanctified by the Holy Spirit in that area and all others. I named this site Growing Garwoods because not only are my husband and I constantly growing in the Lord but also because we have 9 children, with our tenth baby due in Sept. I am blessed to homeschool my arrows and to fulfill my role as keeper at home. I was a professing Christian for a long time before I came to a saving knowledge of Christ. Even after my regeneration, I was taught poor theology for years, that I truly struggled with. However, Praise the Lord for He is faithful, and He brought me out from under my deception. As my love and knowledge grew, so did my desire to share and shout His name and His truth. It’s my desire now to share proper theology and doctrine with women. To encourage them to gain better and stronger theology through a deeper study of Scripture. (We don’t have to settle for arts & crafts anymore, ladies! We can get to the meat of the Word!) Since I am a wife and mother, my heart is also to serve and help other wives and mothers understand and fulfill their biblical roles. Being a homeschooler is big part of my life too, so I also love to talk all things homeschool. However, my first priority will always be taking care of my family. You will see a mix of theology and homeschool on this website. I am mainly active on my IG theology account, but have FB and Twitter too.
“No Christian can avoid theology. Every Christian is a theologian. Perhaps not a theologian in the technical or professional sense, but a theologian nevertheless. The issue for Christians is not whether we are going to be theologians but whether we are going to be good theologians or bad ones”RC Sproul
