As an author and a speaker, one of Jani Ortlund’s chief goals in life is to connect women with the Word of God. As Executive Vice President of Renewal Ministries, God is using her in women’s conferences both in the United States and abroad.
Jani’s first book, Fearlessly Feminine (Multnomah, 2000), encourages women to boldly embrace God’s unique design for them as women. Her second book, His Loving Law, Our Lasting Legacy: Living the Ten Commandments and Giving Them to Our Children (Crossway, 2007) demonstrates the relevance of the Ten Commandments for today and offers practical ways to live them out and teach them to the children in your life.
Besides conference speaking and writing, Jani is a pastor’s wife, mother, grandmother, and former elementary school teacher. The Ortlunds have four married children and twelve grandchildren, serving Christ throughout the United States and Canada. When Jani is not speaking, writing, or visiting family, you’ll find her in her garden, enjoying tea with a friend, or taking a long walk with her beloved husband!
