Author of Finding Norm

Jana Berndt

Jana Sipe Berndt is the blessed mother of three adult children, dog mom to an adorably naughty golden retriever, friend to anyone who can keep up with her fast-paced walks, and talented musician seated most often at the piano. 

She spent the last thirty-five years as a banker, advisor, and friend to many in her small northern Minnesota community. For much of her career, Jana served on numerous community and non-profit boards.

Her life was normal … until one day it wasn’t. Widowed at fifty-two, she was faced with a future she never asked for, didn’t want, and certainly didn’t foresee. 

In her debut memoir Finding Norm, Jana’s honest, faith-filled storytelling will encourage, comfort and inspire you to find resilience in your personal quest towards a more joy-filled life. Finding Norm will leave you with the hope that a new “norm” is possible and worth finding!
