About

Hi! My name is Janet Eriksson. I am one of God’s kids, just like you. Welcome to Adventures with God.

As a prayer minister, writer, editor, and teacher in Dahlonega, Georgia, I experience new adventures with God every day.

Whether it’s praying for healing, worshiping in the local jail, diving into the depths of scripture, growing in inner healing through the power of Christ, meeting beautiful people from down the street and around the world, sharing sweet tea and conversation in an assisted living residence, traveling to Guatemala to share Christ’s love with children, facilitating a Bible study or prayer group, encouraging people in their spiritual adventures, writing testimonies about God, encouraging fellow writers, sitting on a lake dock, or kayaking down the river with friends, each day is a precious gift.

My desire is to inspire and encourage you as you dive deep on your unique adventures with God. I have created online courses and daily blog posts to help you get started on your journey and to encourage you along the way.

These are the adventures I love to write about and teach:

Prayer – Conversation with God!

Encouragement for Christian Writers – This adventure begins with your heart.

Biblical Languages (Hebrew and Greek) – A unique adventure that enriches our understanding of scripture.

Inner Healing – The most challenging and exhilarating journey I’ve ever taken.

Inductive Bible Study – Searching the depths and treasures of God’s Word.

Travel Adventures with God – Experiences with unforgettable people I’ve met around the world. You will find amazing people right down the street as well.

I hope the words on these pages and the online courses I offer will encourage and inspire you as you experience all God has in store for you. You are amazing! God loves you.

P.S. For those who would like to know a little more about me, here are a few highlights:

  • Served 13 years (and continuing) in ministry, including a church staff, group home for at-risk teens, and now apostolic ministry.
  • Volunteered 11 years (and continuing) with Transformations including 5+ years of internship.
  • Volunteered 8 years (and continuing) in our local jail ministry.
  • Worked for clients as a professional writer and editor for 20 years (and continuing).
  • Taught at universities in the States and overseas. Now I teach online through Adventures with God and I teach locally and via Zoom through Transformations.
  • Graduated with a Master of Divinity degree from Asbury Theological Seminary (Traina Inductive Bible Study scholarship recipient and International Society of Theta Phi/Theological Honor Society member).

More importantly than these experiences, I am one of God’s kids and love getting to know Him better every day.

Following are two videos of me captured at the Transformations Fall 2018 Healing Retreat. Both were situations where my colleagues helped me overcome my fears. Each video represents, in different ways, what diving deep into this adventure with God looks like for me. The links below will take you to the videos on the Transformations (Center for Inner Healing) Facebook page.
