About

Janie Seltzer, M.A. Pastoral Theology, is a Spiritual Director, a poet and writer of the spiritual life. She also is a retreat leader and speaker.

Her passion is to help others understand the action and movement of God in their own soul towards restoration of imago dei . . .  “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27).

She is the Director of Hidden Life Ministries, which she co-leads with her husband, Don, an ordained Presbyterian pastor, who is also an interventionist and recovery coach.  Janie and Don previously founded two churches, Wellington Presbyterian Church in Wellington, Florida and North Coast Presbyterian Church in Encinitas, CA (now Redeemer Presbyterian Church).

In addition, Janie founded an inspirational wholesale gift company, called Hidden Life Treasures. For seven years she worked in an art licensing, first as the Director of Grace Licensing and then with Painted Planet Licensing.

Janie is the author of Spa Treatments for Your Body and Soul, by Harvest House Publishers. (If interested, you can purchase one on Amazon or she will sign and personalize one for you.) She and Don have been married and in ministry for over 40 years. They have two grown sons, and between them they have three beautiful golden mixes in the family–Peaches, Rudy and Sweden (the Queen!).

Janie loves all types of creativity including painting and gardening. One of her greatest joys has been the transformation of the  Hidden Life (and Seltzer) Home into a Sacred Garden. It was no small project and it has an astonishing story!
