SDDL Book Foreword
There is a saying in Yorkshire England, ‘It is better felt than telt,’ which means if you can experience something, it has a greater value than talking about it. This book is such an experience! The Janiece Turner–Hartmann story is about a true God given miracle! Written by her husband, Joseph, after years of walking with the miracle and living with the miracle, he decided to document it for all; so that others could believe that God is a miracle worker in the every day people, as He always has been and always will be.
I first met Janiece nearly 20 years ago, when she first came into our fellowship, one mid–week meeting. I have been privileged, with my wife, to watch the ongoing miracle ever since. She is modern proof of the ability of the Lord to heal, deliver and work His grace deep within a person’s life. She is still the loudest person during a message, having never lost her joy and wonder at the amazing grace of her God. Her journey still continues, her hope still burns bright and her testimony continues to thrill.
This book, written in depth and with consistent detail, will at the least inspire you. It will bless you and will open your heart to all the possibilities of a life touched by a living God.
Who knows what miracles are awaiting all whose hearts are open to the potential of the God of Janiece. He is your God too!

SDDL Book Introduction
Please keep in mind, as you read this book, that it was written mainly from Janiece’s perspective and how she reacted or responded to the circumstances and people around her. We have used other people’s recollections and observations to enhance the story line and to provide a much fuller understanding of her journey.
Over a period of years and ministry, I have found that sometimes the truth isn’t as important in someone’s past, but rather, it is how they perceive that past in their own eyes. In this story I have laid a foundation, layer by layer, as it builds to a point of climax at the moment of the breakthrough. From that point on another foundation begins to be built as her life takes on a new meaning and a new journey.
Careful consideration was given to protect and cover those involved as much as possible, yet still revealing certain actions, reactions, and the necessary circumstances to achieve some sort of understanding of how she ended up at death’s door, and what it took to reverse the process and bring healing. Janiece and I have exposed major parts of our lives in order to help our readers to understand the processes we can walk through in life, that there is hope, and that most of all, we can gain the victory.
We hope that as you read, you might be able to find something in our journey that might encourage you in yours. We hope you find your destiny and purpose in this life, and then live it to the full. Our greatest walk in life is not being a clone of someone else, but rather, walking the path prepared for us before the foundations of the earth, and at the end, receiving our victor’s crown. Live life to its fullest with no regrets. Only One knows why we are here. It might just help us a bit in our journey if we find out what that reason is. Our gifts and talents are ours and no one else can walk the path we were destined to walk unless we refuse it. Live life on purpose, not by accident.
