Welcome to Women and Church!
My name is Janel, and I'm the curator of this website. I care deeply about women's equality in the church and in the world. We are created equal by God, and can serve God equally.
I believe the best church is one in which we all live full and authentic lives before God and with each other. Women and men, bringing God's recreation into the world around us.
