Hi I'm Jane Adair

I joined the Church when I was 31. I have never looked back! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'M A MOM! I love being a mom!!! We have 5 wonderful children and 2 grandchildren. As our children have grown they have brought wonderful spouses into our family. They all have a sense of humor and we love being with them. I love to read and travel. I love to be around other people. Cooking has always been a hobby for me. I enjoy all sorts of food from many different lands. I have way too many cookbooks! I love campfires and gazing up at the stars, warm sand on the beach and the smell of the ocean. I am a beekeeper and I grow herbs. Mostly I love enjoying all of these things with our family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I always had the basic beliefs as far as religion goes. I knew some families from our son's activities in sports. They were always so happy, polite, kind and friendly. They invited us to learn about their church. I didn't know they were Mormons. The missionaries came to our home with the brother who invited us to learn more. To tell the truth when we saw the missionaries through our curtains I thought we had made a big mistake! The first visit we had with them I had two very important questions answered that I had been confused about. Where do we go after this life and what happens to children who have not been baptized? The answer they gave rang true in my heart and I wanted to learn more. All of the things I was taught by these two young men was so comforting, like I'd always known these truths. As I learned more I was filled with joy and did not want to loose what I had found. I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have felt like I have come home. A home that stretches beyond this earthly experience.

How I live my faith

It's now been 25 years since I have made a commitment to follow my Savior, Jesus Christ. I attend church every Sunday with our family as well as social events and conferences. We pray together and read our scriptures as a family. We have fun together sharing meaningful activities that provide us with lots of memories to cherish. By living our faith we grow closer together. This is how we have found peace and happiness. When you know Heavenly Father loves you, and you show you know this by your actions, you can see amazing things happen to bless your life and the lives of people around you! This is a world where people look for new and exciting things to bring happiness into their lives. New clothes, vacations, cars, etc. I lived that life and I know that it brings only fleeting moments of happiness. Nothing that lasts. I have never grown bored of attending church all these years. I continue to be faithful because I am still uplifted and nourished. I receive what I truly need. The kind of happiness that lasts.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Jane Adair
We believe that we are all children of a loving Heavenly Father. He has created this earth as a place for us to live, to gain knowledge and experience. Through prophets He has taught the way to live happy lives and shown us how we can live with Him after our mortal death. God has given us the power to make our own choices. We are never compelled to go to church, say our prayers, be kind to others, help the needy and other good acts. However when we do these things we are greatly blessed to feel His love for us and our fellow man. We all desire to feel loved. Heavenly Father dwells in a place where there is knowledge, light, beauty and love. We need to follow his Son, Jesus Christ, so we can feel worthy to live in such a place. He has provided us with all we need to know and do to live with Him. I know the purpose of my life is to show God I want to live with Him by the choices I make. In how I live my life. I am choosing His way to live, not mine. And I am happy and I feel loved. Show more Show less
