Janet’s early life was characterized by great difficulty, but despite hardships, she was always able to overcome. Once the war began, Janet and her family were forced to move, but during this time Janet discovered her passion for crochet after learning basic skills. At KNOWN SUPPLY, Janet is overjoyed to learn more advanced crocheting and knitting skills, attend educational classes and, most importantly, earn a salary that allows her to support her family.

“Love is happiness that comes from the heart of a person, and it is that heart that makes a person love one another.”

“To work harder, save money, and buy a piece of land in the village for farming. I want to own a land that will be inherited by my children.”

“I like teaching children in Sunday school because they make me feel so happy and comfortable.”

Dear Lagum Janet,
Your story has touched my heart. I hope and pray you are able to purchase a farm to be able to further provide for your family and pass it on for generations to come. Love is the answer. We need to all love each other and help each other. I wish all the people of the world world were as beautiful as you. Beautiful inside and out.
By the way, my hand warmers are so soft, warm and exquisite. I love them! I usually don't spend so much money on something like this, but when I saw how much it would help you and your family, I could not help myself!
God bless you and your family and keep up the good work!
Gratefully yours,
Mimi Harder

Thank you Janet for taking the time to knit my hat! I really admire that you work so hard for your children to have a good future. 2 Corinthians 9:8 says, "And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work".

Thank you for your generosity, and I pray that God continues to bless you!

Dear Janet,

You did a beautiful job on the Abby Jr. hat that I ordered for my grand niece. I will be shipping it to her in Hungary. She is the first child of the next generation in our family and it is the perfect gift. My mother, grandmother, and great grandmother all knitted and crocheted. I also know how and our daughters. It is a wonderful skill.

God bless you and your family!
