Small Inspirations
Small inspirations?? I think not so small! The songs speak to every season of a women's life with celebration. Encouraging women to appreciate ourselves and our accomplishments, and to find the next point on our life compass.

Elizabeth : Dance / Yoga instructor

The songs are motivational!
I love these songs! I have used this cd for my yoga and dance classes. A group of moms actually performed a lovely dance at our last recital to the song "On the Day You were Born", and it was so touching. There wasn't a dry eye in the house.

Thomas Redfield - from Oregon

Not an ordinary cd
This is an intimate listening experience - A whispered voice connects the soulful music and
words that draw you in and abound with truth and love.

Soothing, inspirational, moving!. Janina sings to the mother and the woman.
Janina calls us to be the best we can be with music and a voice that lifts my soul. Soothing, inspirational, moving! Janina sings to the mother and the woman in each of us.


Janina's voice is smooth as silk. Her lyrics are nuturing and meditative. Her CD is an "Inspiration", but there is nothing small about it. Her message is uplifting and heartfelt.

Listening to Small Inspirations makes me feel good!
I'm a busy mom, but I love to listen to this cd whenever I feel like I myself need some mothering.I often listen to it when I'm driving in the car alone and never get tired of hearing the heart-felt lyrics and Janina's mellow voice.
