God Is at Eye Level—Photography as a Healing Art
Quest Books (2000)

This is a book about photography's power to heal, transform, bridge gaps between people when language falls short. Photography is embraced as a practice that can lead to flashes of surprising insight and open doors to a deeper knowing. "May we, as image makers, shapers of the culture, set our sights on things we value, rituals we engage in that heal and serve. May our images honor the ordinary endeavors of common people, and may they make their way to the eyes of the weary—light to the dark, fire to the chill." from God Is at Eye Level

"Jan's wealth of talent, fearless voice, and fomenting creativity have resulted in a wondrous book that is part photographic exhibit, part memoir, part spiritual teaching, and part self-help workshop. Each luminous element could stand proudly on its own, but we get all four. What can I say? Buy, view, read, and love this book!"

Making Peace: One Woman's Journey Around the World
Friendship Press (1989)

Making Peace is a book of photographs and reflections about an 18 month global peace pilgrimage. It is an account of the author's spiritual transformation as she moved from her Western, Christian, social activist roots into cultures and communities that challenged her values at every juncture. "In order to create a culture of peace, a culture that reflects our reverence for life, we need stories and symbols that heal and guide, that help us remember we are part of a whole." from Making Peace

"This is a splendid book! A vivid account of one daring, inquisitive woman's search for the things that make for peace."
