Care Net supports one of the largest networks of pregnancy centers in North America and runs the nation’s only real-time call center providing pregnancy decision coaching. It’s a ministry that I absolutely love and believe in! I volunteer as an advocate for the women and families. I held a fundraiser show for CareNet Pro-Life pregnancy center in Redding, CA. From the one show I have booked other shows to continue to raise funds for this ministry. So the original fundraiser show acted as a leg to other fundraisers. I will continue to give 20% of my profit to CareNet through shows that originated from the first show.

I’m from Tennessee and joined Premier two years ago on the invitation of my daughter, Corrie Zoetewey. She was pregnant with my first grandchild at the time, and I wanted some extra money to travel to Oklahoma to see them. And I knew I’d want extra money to spend on my new granddaughter!
I first found a lump in my left breast in August of 2012, and it was cancer. I was disappointed, but my biggest fear was for my daughter. My mother had breast cancer so we had a family history of the disease. My mantra was “Trust God,” and this simple phrase strengthened me. I knew I would have to rely on the prayers of everyone I knew. After 5 months of chemo to shrink the size of the lump, I had a lumpectomy followed by radiation. My lumpectomy was in the spring and I joined Premier in August.Read More »
“Don’t worry about anything, instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank Him for all He has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”
– Philippians 4:6-7
My name is Jennifer Roberts, and I’m a West Texas girl from El Paso. I moved to the Dallas-Fort Worth area in September of 1997 and started at Premier the following month. I’ve been an associate with Premier for 18 years. It’s not just a job—it has been a blessing to my family and life! I am in awe by all the lives that have been touched around the world and I am humbled by Premier’s giving.

My name is Lisa Center, and I’m from Kansas. My story involved my real mom (pictured right) and my jewelry mom. I met Tanya Burk (my jewelry mom) through another friend at her jewelry party in 2012 and agreed to host a show. At that time, my mother had just been diagnosed with breast cancer, and I was raising money to do the Susan G. Komen 60-mile walk. When I talked to Tanya, she agreed to have my show be a fundraiser and donated a portion of her profits to my cause. She was great, and that was my first show with her. I did many years of many shows with her after that, and then I finally became a Jeweler myself in July 2015.
My mom was diagnosed in 2011, and she had a mastectomy later that year. My thoughts and feelings at the time were all over the place. I thought I was going to lose my mom, and I had no idea what the future had in store for us. My dad was diagnosed with bladder cancer at the end of the same year, and I just thought I was going to lose both of them at the same time.Read More »
