Janet Taylor

I was born in Lone Star, Texas, and I grew up in Daingerfield, Texas. I met my husband, Larry, on a blind date. We have been married since 1991. We have one wonderful son, Jeff. We live in North Richland Hills.

I have been a member of Smithfield UMC since 1997. I taught Sunday School, Children’s Church, and Vacation Bible School. I have been with SUMC Discovery School since 1997. First as a parent and then a staff member. I was a classroom teacher for eight years. I was the Assistant Director for one year. I have been the Director of Discovery School since 2007. I love teaching and spending time with children as they grow academically and spiritually. I love my job!

I love movies! I enjoy spending time with my family, reading (especially mysteries), taking pictures and trying new recipes.

What kind of pizza do you like best? Spinach and mushroom. Yuck!

Who is your favorite singer/musician? Musician – my son, Jeff. Singer – I have several hard to pinpoint but two of my favorites are George Strait and Toby Mac.

What is your favorite color? Purple

What was your best-ever vacation? The summer after my son Jeff’s senior year. We traveled all over Montana and Wyoming – it was beautiful!

If you could ask Jesus a question, what would it be? When I see Jesus, I will be so happy to see Him that I will just want to listen!

Which was your favorite Ninja Turtle? Had to do some research here – I am not very familiar with the Ninja Turtles. Probably Donatello – he wears a purple mask!

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A detective

Have you ever lived outside Texas? Blessed to have lived in Texas all my life.

If you had only one sentence left to say, what would it be? It has been a wonderful life, love you all, and I will see you again later.

What Bible verse do you turn to most? Phil 4:13: I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
