More about Becki: Becki Reiser is a survivor! When her seventeen-year-old daughter, Liz was abducted and murdered, in May of 2000, her family stood on the Word of God and offered forgiveness to the person that took her daughter’s life. Life as she had known it, being a wife to Jeff and mother to four children was forever altered. From the moment they found out what happened, they asked God to use their story to bring glory to His name. A ministry began and Jeff and Becki have shared their story and message of forgiveness nationwide.

Jeff and Becki have been married almost 30 years (In November) and have three sons, Micah (27) an ordained worship minister at Cornerstone Chapel in Leesburg, VA., Jordan, (24) an ER Nurse at St. Mary’s Medical Center in Evansville, IN., And Christopher, (22) a senior at University of Akron, studying Civil Engineering, and plans to be a Youth pastor as well.

More About Janet: After Janet graduated from University of California, Berkeley, with a degree in journalism,she married her high school sweetheart Craig and worked as a newspaper reporter and editor.  They eventually settled down in the Sierra Valley in northern California, where Craig is a rancher and where there is not a single stoplight in the entire county. In their town of 700+ folks, she says they have raised four pretty good children – three done with college – and are now enjoying the grandkids, all of whom are perfect. As a high school English teacher, academic advisor, and teacher mentor, Janet says the only pastime she has time for is friends!  And she looks forward to knowing you better!

Many years ago, depressed and overweight, McHenry found a simple plan for her life: she would pray while she walked. Little did she know, it would change her life personally and open her eyes to the needs of her community.
