WORTH FORGIVING
by Janet K. Brown


Janet K. Brown lives in Wichita Falls, Texas with her husband, Charles. 
Janet K. Brown

Worth Forgiving, an inspirational women’s fiction, is the second in her Wharton Rock series. Her only non-fiction is Divine Dining: 365 Devotions to Guide You to Healthier Weight and Abundant Wellness

Worth Forgiving marks Brown’s fourth book. Who knew she had a penchant for teens and ghosts? She released her debut novel, an inspirational young adult, Victoria and the Ghost, in July, 2012.

Janet and her husband love to travel with their RV, work in their church, and visit their three daughters, two sons-in-law and three perfect grandchildren. 


Welcome, Janet. If you could have dinner with one person from today or history (except Jesus) who would it be? Why?
Janette Oak – She braved the way for Christian women authors. I would love to brainstorm & learn of how Jesus led her into this career.

Where is your favorite vacation spot?
I love taking our travel trailer anywhere in the Rocky mountains of Colorado or New Mexico.

What do you enjoy doing for relaxation?
Reading and watching Net Flix with hubby to rest; Swimming and line dancing for exercise.

What is your favorite Bible verse? 
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28, NIV

Please tell us a little about your novel, Worth Forgiving.
Worth Forgiving is Book II in the Wharton Rock Series

Prejudice and mistrust hinders an ex-con, drug addict’s new beginning. 


The state of Texas releases from prison Katie Smith. Full of optimism, she sets out to get a job, rent her own place, and make a home for her eight-year-old daughter, but Katie gave away her daughter three years ago. She could use a friend, but her past choices threaten to doom her to continued failure.

Larry Pullman graduated from seminary with high marks, but the fact that he has no wife makes finding a preaching job almost impossible. It doesn’t help that running from God as a teenager gave him a past that he can’t undo. All he needs is an ex-con, drug addict messing up his life, but then why did God lead him to her? Or did He?

Isn’t it enough that Lacey Chandler gave her sister’s daughter a home? Does that mean she has to clean up Katie’s messes forever?

Could it be that Katie is not Worth Forgiving?

  2. I tend to be harder on myself than others
    I replay the situation and often question "what if?" and "why did I?"
    Janet's book sounds very good. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I think it is harder to forgive yourself. You feel like you have really messed up and no one will want to be around you . But in order to heal, you must take that hard step and forgive yourself for whatever it is. Oh the freedom that brings is worth it.

  14. Both are hard for me. I still find it hard to forgive a cheating husband from years ago. My biggest problem in forgiving myself is thinking I should have done with my parents while they were still alive. If I had to pick one, I would pick it is harder to forgive myself.

  15. Usually, it's harder to forgive myself, because I'm my own worst critic. But, depending on what someone else did, it can be hard to fully forgive.
