Who We Are:
Our All Things New team is a group of women who are exploring the treasures of the Kingdom. We are discovering more of God's heart and by that becoming more of who He created us to be and become. We desire to join with Him in inspiring others to know Him more, to encounter His love in real and personal ways so hearts may be restored and transformed...so they may fully live as Jesus promised in John 10:10.

Janelle has been involved in small group ministry since college which has given her a passion for connecting women in friendship, and even more, to the heart of God. After experiencing more of God's love at a Captivating retreat, Janelle was led to start All Things New so other women could as well. Since she lived in MN at the time, that is where the ministry began in 2009. She and her husband, Chuck, moved to North Carolina in 2014. Now All Things New has opportunity to minister in 2 locations (Midwest and Southeast) Janelle loves seeing how God is using her experience as a former home educator, microbiologist and kid's birthday planner to create a welcoming atmosphere for women to gather and be inspired through events, small groups and through her speaking and wrting. Janelle is mother to 3 daughters, 2 sons and 1 "son-in-love". She is soon to be a grandma! Her heart is refreshed by enjoying rich conversations over tea, baking, reading, crafts and going on outdoor adventures with her family.

A dairy farmer's daughter, Helen's journey began in northern Michigan with dreams of seeing the world one day. Throughout her journey, God sprinkled breadcrumbs of hope that left undeniable proof of His love and plan for her life. At age 47, she met her "man after God's own heart" whose own journey was interrupted through the pain of divorce. Helen and Ross began to offer God's hope and restoration to hurting relationships through "Love & War", a Ransomed Heart series for married couples. Their journey together has taken then from California to Colorado to their current home in Woodbury MN. Helen discovered "Captivating", "Waking the Dead" and "Becoming Myself", inspiring books that awakened her heart for more of God. She attended the very first All Things New retreat in 2013, which instilled a desire to offer Living Water to other women thirsty for MORE. Helen enjoys discovering new places with Ross and capturing the beauty of God's creation through photography. Leading women in discovering God's truths through Bible study has become a true joy.
