Jan Harrison is an author, speaker, and Bible study teacher who has inspired women for over 15 years. She and her husband Frank have become dear friends of Sherwood, and we support With Open Eyes, a ministry co-founded by her son James. James died unexpectedly in 2010 in Nairobi, Kenya. It was there that James had been devoting his life to serving the poor and providing help to the needy. He also served along godly pastors who had become respected friends and mentors in his life.
Through these events, Jan experienced the promise of “life after the storm.” The storms of life can leave lasting scars that permanently mark your life. When your heart is ready to begin the healing journey, this companion will lead you to God’s essential provisions for survival—His promises, His Spirit, His ever-present help, and the treasures of His Word.
Jan’s story is painful, yet redemptive, as it walks through God’s goodness in the midst of great grief and tragedy. Read it yourself and share it with a friend or family member in need.
Jan serves on the board of With Open Eyes, and she and her husband Frank reside in Charlotte, North Carolina. With Open Eyes partners with local ministries and international mission agencies to identify, train, and equip messengers of the Gospel as they seek to access unreached people groups. Through these partnerships we provide individual Mobile Messengers appropriate transportation and other tools they need for the purposes of introducing the message of Jesus Christ and establishing self-sustaining and reproducing churches.
