What readers are saying about Jana’s latest project, The Sunday Letters:

The Sunday Letters are always a thoughtful and welcome stop during my week. You get a moment to pause, to consider and to reflect … and Jana often leaves you with a question to keep you thinking long after you’ve finished reading. I love these letters and find myself forwarding them regularly to friends and family.” – Scott Burau

“I always look forward to reading Jana’s emails; it’s a breath of fresh air, … a timely reminder to take things slow and live in the moment.” – Andi Lanuza

“Reading a Sunday Letter is like briefly talking philosophy with a trusted friend. Short and simple but deep and fulfilling.” – Megan Snider

“A welcome respite from my usual Monday morning chaos.” – Carla

“Jana keeps on finding surprisingly simple yet touching ways to remind us that the most effective actions in the world are those within the reach of everyone.” – Jenan

“Although I know I should be expecting them, these letters always come as a surprise. I feel like Jana is a friend — the smart one who reads books that intimidate you — that shows up every two weeks to share something that’s on her mind. … Each letter feels like a quiet affirmation that we are all moving through a life filled with curious people, perspectives, and ideas.” – Audrey

“In a world where internet gurus tell us how to make our life better, Jana does the opposite — she gently provides food for thought.” – Lauren Attard

“Jana’s newsletter literally puts peace in my inbox every two weeks (and now weekly!). As soon as I see it, it pulls me in with every word.” – Kalee Ball

“While I have a habit of trashing some newsletters when my inbox is crowded, The Sunday Letters is always a must read. Jana explores a lot of small-yet-big topics that play through my mind while I’m painting. When they show up I sometimes feel like I’m having a delayed conversation with her!” – Melanie Biehle

“Elegant, thoughtful ponderings for anyone. I love how each letter commands you to slow down, absorb, and let it move you.” – Lauren Stephenson
