I Write from Love & Experience.

I’ve been writing my story since childhood. I suppose my journals have been my safe place. The blank page my very private, very personal counseling room. Little did I know that one day my words would become more public, less private. I don’t mind, though, as I hope and pray that my story informs your story. We need each other because healing happens best within community. So, welcome.

I Speak with Passion & Purpose.

We are in a global pandemic. Speaking events have changed and VIRTUAL MEETINGS and CONFERENCING are now a legit new normal. I’d love to meet with you and strategically plan on how we can best meet the needs of your attendees. I’ve spoken to 12 women around Lake Navaisha, Kenya and to hundreds of women sitting in an auditorium. Both were remarkable. Empowering men and women is at the core of my passion.  Let’s accept 2020’s invitation to living more meaningful lives. Download my Speaking Topics (PDF) to share with your planning committee or contact me and together we’ll create a strategic event for your group.

Your heart is big and we’ve seen all the love and passion and effort you’ve put into this retreat. It is really out of this world. We didn’t expect all of this. To laugh. To cry. It is just remarkable and we will never forget this experience. We hope it happens every year.

Janell offered me the space to ask hard questions, and helped me understand what was under those questions. We went on the journey together to more freedom, a stronger faith, and a deeper sense of clarity and healing.
