Janel is married to Bob and they have four children: Caleb, Aaron, Sarah, and Julia. Janel loves being a Mom! She has found each season of parenting is remarkably challenging and yet so rewarding. In this current season in life, she finds herself spending a lot of time driving around Owatonna in her SUV.

Janel loves greeting and welcoming people at NewLife Community, especially meeting someone new! She considers it a privilege to be a part of a place that is so passionate about creating a comfortable environment for people to hear the truth of God’s word.

Janel’s favorites:

  • Thunderstorms
  • Anything with water or on the lake
  • Spending time camping with friends and family

Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Romans 12:9
