Hi I'm Janalyn

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of two wonderful little boys who love dirt, rocks, bugs, animals, and anything that their Dad does. I am lucky enough to stay home with them and watch them learn and grow. They are ages three and one and keep me on my toes.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because its real. The truth shared in our church is so real and tangible and anyone who seeks for a better more fulfilling life can have that when they participate in the blessings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. You can feel and sense the joy that comes from knowing why we are here on the Earth, where we were before we lived on this Earth, and what happens when we die. It is indescribable to know that we have a Savior who loves us so much that He gave His life for us so that we could live with our Father in Heaven again through the miraculous power of the atonement. Life doesn't come without its problems but through the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ those problems can be easier understood. The Gospel gives us a new perspective that changes the way we view life, the way we view our most cherished relationships, the way we view ourselves. To know that we are sons and daughters of God and that we too can be like Him. Thats how much God loves us. He wants us all to make the right choices, learn of Him and His Son, and progress through this life so that we can someday be righteous enough to walk into his presence and to dwell with Him for Eternity. Its with that hope and my faith that I live each day. That even though I make mistakes, if I repent, I can be forgiven and progress one step closer to becoming worthy to enter into His presence.

How I live my faith

My life would mean nothing without my faith. Through my faith I have been able to teach my children correct principles in hopes that they will grow up to be strong virtuous members of their families and communities. I teach sunday school to 6-7 year olds every Sunday and enjoy being involved and sharing my testimony with them. I am able to visit three women who are also of my same faith and together we strengthen each other's faith during our monthly visits.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

YES! That is the great news of the Gospel. We can live together with our loves ones forever. This is a blessing that is predicated upon our worthiness and will be judged after we die by our Savior. When a family is sealed together in the holy Temple, they covenant with God and each other that they are willing to be faithful to what they know to be true. When we have completed this life and have stayed true to the covenants they will be given the glorious reward of living with our Father and Heaven again through the Eternities. This is the greatest gift of God! Show more Show less
