Are you thinking, “Yay, the merry month of May!”


“Mayday, Mayday, Mayday!”  

Help me, help me, help me!  


Has winter left you feeling run-down, depleted, and in a funk that you can’t seem to shake? Wouldn’t it be great to flip a switch and feel renewed and refreshed just in time for summer? Ready for a RENEWED you?

Ready for a RENEWED you?

I know personally in the last four months I broke my wrist, lost my dad, lost my mother-in-law, navigated new programs, was more sedentary and struggled in relationships.

I NEED this May Challenge.  

I need to be reset spiritually, physically, in relationships and my purpose in life.  


How about YOU?  

Have you been struggling?  Need some help?  Support?  Accountability?  Prayer?  Honesty?  Friends?  Weight loss?  More energy?  Motivation?  

I remember how my life TURNED AROUND when I told a trusted friend, “Can I just tell you what is going on in my life?!” 

I told her (and continue to keep her updated) on the truth of what is REALLY happening in my life.  

You need support. You need people who are want to help in a non-judgemental way.  

Does this sound familiar…?

  • You want to recharge your body, mind, and spirit while reclaiming your health this season
  • You’re ready to reclaim your energy and kiss away the crash and burn – for good!
  • You want to discover the root of why you feel tired, have unwanted weight gain, struggle with zero motivation, suffer from horrible mood swings, and  crave unhealthy food
  • You’re eager to learn how to support your body, mind, and spirit so that you can live a fuller, healthier life
  • You’re tired and worn out and ready to give up
  • You want to know what God has for you in this life 
  • You want to thrive in relationships, not be tormented 




In this month, I’ll teach you everything you need to flourish:

    • How to detox your body
    • A NEW tracking program
    • A NEW way of eating 
    • Daily support in a private Facebook Group
    • A LIVE Video chat every day at NOON 
    • Daily emails
    • Spiritual tips
    • Exercise plans
    • Relationship helps
    • Finding your purpose in life
    • Prayers

    • Creativity Boosters
    • Digging for Your Purpose
    • Healing your Mind 
    • Unburdening your Soul 
    • Hanging out with really COOL women 


We will look at the WHOLE person:  Spiritually, Physically, Relationships and  Purpose. 


If you’re wondering what you can do to reverse the impact of not-so-healthy decisions then the answer, my sweet friend, is to cleanse your body, mind, and spirit with a whole foods detox program, prayer, movement and healthy sleep habits.


You are what you eat.  You are what you think.  

What you magnify will manifest. 

What happens in the natural, happens in the spiritual.  


 Put simply – you’re giving your body, mind, and spirit the nourishment it needs to THRIVE!

Frequently Asked Questions:


Who are you and what do you do as a coach?

Janita believes every person can live a specially created life through a personal relationship with the Heavenly Father. Her purpose on this earth is to infuse hope, inspire action, and picture a special future for others as we are meant to live an abundant life filled to overflowing with the Holy Spirit.  She lost 40 pounds 25 years ago and has kept it off through a healthy and active lifestyle.

She earned degrees in Social Work, Psychology and Education, which made her a highly relational educator for the last 27 years.

She has been married to Tim for 23 years and they have five children: Greg, Rachel, Christian, Hannah, and Amanya.

Doesn’t detox mean deprivation?

No – deprivation is eating the “wholesome American” diet filled with factory-made, genetically-modified foods that contain enormous amounts of chemicals, preservatives, bad fats and sugar, and getting NO nutrition from it. Detoxing is the opposite of deprivation because you’ll get all the nutrients your body needs.

I have a food allergy. Can I still do this program?

Absolutely! If you have an allergy to a food recommended in this program, you can easily remove or substitute that ingredient or meal for another one in the recipe guide.

I have a known medical condition. Is this still safe for me?

While this program is based on eating only whole foods, it is still advised that you consult your physician before beginning this or any program.

Note: It is important to consult your doctor before starting any new eating or exercise program. This is a clean eating program designed to teach you the difference between foods that inflame you and foods that fuel you. This program is a guided self-discovery program.

These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This program is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.



$27.00 is such a bargain!  Skip one or two fast food meals and you’ll have the money! 

Your body will thank you, along with your mind and spirit in 30 days!!

Nebraska Mom Promotes Youth Entrepreneurship in New Book

The compliment from a local banker was music to an Oxford mom’s ears.

He had witnessed each of Janita Pavelka’s four children in action at various jobs around town, and he was impressed with their superior customer service skills.

He asked, “How do all four of your children know how to treat customers so well?”

After she wiped a few tears of pride from her eyes, she explained how it must have been because they “started young.”

“Start Young, The ABCs and 123s of Owning a Business by the Age of Six” is the title of Janita’s first book. It shows parents how to cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset in their children and the long-term benefits of having that mindset.

All four of Janita’s children started their own businesses by age 6, and they have created and operated 36 businesses during the past 12 years. She shares those experiences in her book, which was released last fall.

The entrepreneurial experiences started when Janita’s oldest daughter, Rachel, said she wanted to save some money because the local bank (they lived in Bellevue at the time) was offering kids the opportunity to earn prizes for depositing money into savings accounts. Janita told her daughter she would have to earn the money.

Her children started with puppet shows, paper routes, lemonade and popcorn stands and selling flowers to neighbors. Their businesses grew larger as they got older into dog-sitting, dog breeding and jewelry sales.

Janita matched what her children earned, and a portion of their earnings was saved or given to charities.

Janita, who homeschooled her children, saw how owning a business was teaching her kids about saving money, loans, customer service skills, quality assurance, marketing, learning from their mistakes and making decisions – all important assets for future employees or business owners.

Three of her children (Rachel, Christian and Hannah) have graduated from high school and Amanya will graduate in 2018.

“They bought their own cars,” Janita said. “They paid for their own insurance and gas and their clothes.”

When friends started seeing the skills Janita’s children were learning and asking her questions, she decided to start teaching other kids entrepreneurial skills. In 2007, she partnered with the Omaha Homeschool Learning Center and area colleges and taught youth entrepreneurship using the 4-H ESI curriculum (EntrepreneurShip Investigation).

During the past decade, Janita has helped more than 400 children across Nebraska and California (at a friend’s request) start their own businesses. In 2013, she was honored as Nebraska’s Outstanding Entrepreneurship Educator by the REAP Women’s Business Center and the U.S. Small Business Association. The award is co-sponsored by the Nebraska Enterprise Fund and the Nebraska Entrepreneurship Task Force (NETForce).

Janita decided to further share her knowledge in entrepreneurship by writing a book. The first half of the book shares how parents can help their children start their own businesses. The first piece of advice, “Allow time in your schedule for your children as raising adventurous children takes time and attention.”

The second half of the book lists 34 businesses her kids have started and the lessons they learned from each one.

Janita’s companion workbook with specific instructions on starting a business will be released on May 20.

This summer, Janita is offering several entrepreneurship classes across Nebraska for children ages 10-14. For the first time, she will be using a curriculum that she designed based on her years of experience.

Holdrege: Starting May 23 with an Expo on June 1 in the evening at the Farmer’s Market. Partnering with the Don Sjogren Community YMCA, 4-H and the PK Partnership. A Mindset Matters entrepreneur class will be offered for high school students on those same days in the afternoons in Holdrege. (308) 995-4050 or

Kearney Community Learning Center: June 12-15 with an expo on July 6 in the morning at Hy-Vee. Contact Michelle Arehart, KCLC director, (308) 698-8053.

Lexington: Starting June 19 with an Expo on June 26 at the Lexington Wal-Mart. Contact Patricia Sanchez-Stewart, Lexington Middle School, (308) 324-2349 ext. 129.

University of Nebraska at Kearney: June 26-29 with an Expo on June 30. Contact Lisa Tshauner, (308) 865-8135.

Janita’s book is available at Gifts & Things in Holdrege, The Solid Rock in Kearney and Refind in Kearney. It is also available on Amazon.

Start Young: The ABC’s & 123’s of Owning a Business by the Age of Six


My book is done. It is published. And I broke through the fear barrier!

I was so worried about what others would think.  Who am I to think I am an author?  Who am I to think I can write something profound?  Who am I to think I am gifted?

All I know is I am called to be an author and I will fulfill my calling.

Is it perfect?  No.  Do I want a redo?  Yes.  That is why I have started on the companion journal where you can set up the business you may have been dreaming about for years.   Yes, it really is that simple.  All you have to do is take ACTION!  Don’t be like me and let fear defeat you for five years.  That is not living boldly.  You can do it!
