Who is This Nutty Lady?
A spunky pastor's wife, prolific writer & speaker, and former History/Government teacher, Jeanette Levellie has authored a weekly humor/inspirational column in her local newspaper since 2001. She has published stories in Chicken Soup for the Soul Devotions for Wives, Guideposts anthologies, and Love is a Verb Devotional with Gary Chapman; articles in Christian and secular magazines; greeting card verses; and calendar poems.
Jeanette regularly speaks and sings for groups of every size and flavor, and enjoys making people laugh while sharing her love for God, people, and ice cream.
This mother of two, grandmother of three, and servant to four babies wearing cat suits lives in Paris, IL. with her husband, Kevin. Her hobbies include dining out, gardening, avoiding housework, reading, and watching old movies.
Her newest book, Shock the Clock: Time Management for Writers and Other Creatives is a unique approach to managing your time based on your personality style. It brims with fun drawings by the author's son--a former animator--and includes tips from successful writers such as Cecil Murphey, Bob Hostettler and Jody Hedlund.
Jeanette's second book is The Heart of Humor: Sixty Helpings of Hilarity to Nourish Your Soul. The forty-five funny stories alternate with articles on how humor helps you stay healthy and ways to add laughter to your life. 19 of the chapters include humorous drawings by Ron Levellie.
Her debut book, Two Scoops of Grace with Chuckles on Top, is a humorous look at God's bottomless heart. Just like Jeanette's life, it's full of mayhem, messes, and miracles. Sample chapters include Drive up Diapers, Crawzilla, The Ice Cream Snatcher, and Can Preachers Have Sex on Sundays? Ten of the chapters include comical drawings by Jeanette's son, Ron, a former professional animator. If you need to laugh, believe God's love for you, and like yourself more, dive into the sweetness of Two Scoops of Grace with Chuckles on Top.
