Mrs. Garrison is thankful that she came to know the Lord at an early age. Her parents were committed to taking her to church and helping her understand the Gospel. Janet’s father, a businessman, was promoted every couple of years so she moved and lived in several different states. Janet was born in Mississippi and also lived in Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, and by the time she was in 6th grade she lived in a suburb of Chicago, Illinois.
Janet graduated from a Christian school in Orlando, Florida and then pursued Elementary Education at Pensacola Christian College. Her first teaching position was at the same church that her family had attended when she lived in Chicago, Illinois. That is where she met her husband, a fellow Christian school teacher, Gary Garrison. Gary and Janet have been committed to serving the Lord in Christian Education for the last 25 years as a married couple.
Janet has taught every grade from kindergarten to 4th grade. Her favorite is KINDERGARTEN!! Gary and Janet have three children: Jason, Jessica and Jordan. Janet loves the passage from I Corinthians that says, “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.”
