Janet Susan Williams submitted her first song lyrics at age ten, and at age sixteen, was invited to the Nebraska Governor’s mansion to discuss her work. She has been writing songs, poetry, and short stories since then. Her poetry has been read on radio and television, has been internationally published by Blue Mountain Arts Greeting cards (under the pen name Janet Kostelecky Nieto), and has been recognized by three New Mexico State Governors. Mrs. Williams is also affectionately known as “Little Orange Shoes,” a name that she often uses in ministry. Her songs and poetry reflect on many different aspects of life, but all have a deep focus on the healing and delivering power of the cross of Christ and God’s magnificent love. Her greatest desire is to use God’s gifts as a means to glorify God and to convey His love, His compassion, His encouragement, and His saving grace, to the world around her. Mrs. Williams has been a volunteer with Conviction for Christ prison ministry for the past two years. Although a native Nebraskan, she now lives in her beloved New Mexico with her best friend and husband, Al, and their little beagle, Rio. Her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren are the joy of her life.
