About Our Speaker: Janice Charbonnet

Janice (White) Charbonnet was born and raised in Canada. She studied at Mount Saint Vincent University in Nova Scotia and earned a degree in public relations. She worked in various positions across the country, ending with a position as public relations coordinator for a politician with a cabinet position.  In 1996 she felt called to quit her job and serve as a missionary with NET Ministries, traveling with a team across the United States leading evangelization retreats for teenagers. That was where she met her husband, Jean, and they continued to work with NET Ministries together, this time in their Canadian office.   They moved to Mandeville in 2008 to be closer to Jean’s family. Janice and Jean have 5 children ranging in age from 18 to 5. She serves on the women’s team for CCRNO (Catholic Charismatic Renewal of New Orleans). She and her husband are speakers for Wilwoods marriage retreats and also facilitate a program teaching married couples how to pray together.


Personal Prayer ministry is available upon request after the meal.

Logo items and books are available for purchase.

Since the day is designed to speak to the hearts of women, free of distractions, it is respectfully requested that young children under the age of 14 not be in attendance.
