Do you want to chat with a missionary?

We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Hi I'm Janet

I'm an aspiring attorney, newly married wife, lover of sunshine and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Argentina, and grew up in the US. I'm a newly wed and am currently in law school! I want to be an immigration attorney one day soon. I love traveling the world and exploring different cultures and food. I really enjoy feeling the sun on my face, so i love anything outdoors like hiking, camping etc. I don't like to wake up early, I love to cook because I love to eat, and I love being my with my family. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints aka Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

Anyone who has gone through high school and college knows how difficult it can be to find oneself. Life can be stressful and difficult sometimes. It's easy to get lost without guidance. God has taught me that I am a daughter of God and he loves me. I have eternal potential and I know how valuable I am. This knowledge has given me strength and helped me become who I am. Its amazing that we are so special to God that he will help guide us and answer our prayers when we seek the truth. I have prayed to know that this is his Gospel, and I have received a witness through the peace and comfort of the Holy Ghost that it is. This is a witness that anyone can receive. I know that Heavenly Father still guides and leads us today. This life was meant to be lived to the fullest, and we are to be happy! The gospel of Christ has given me that happiness and direction in my life.

How I live my faith

I served for 18 months as a missionary in San Diego California. There I was able to meet some amazing people and teach everyone about our Savior Jesus Christ. It was super neat experience and enjoyed seeing the happiness one receives with the knowledge of our savior's love and sacrifice. During my final few months I was able able to serve as a missionary at the Mormon Battalion Historic Site in Old Town, San Diego. There I was able to teach the visitors about the early saint's contribution to the development of San Diego. Now I have the opportunity to visit monthly several woman at church and share with them an uplifting message prepared specifically for them. My husband and I co-teach the 16-18 year old youth at church and its a blast! Its really neat to be able to get involved and live what you believe.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Janet
Family is the most important unit in the church. In the home and with our family is where we can learn about our eternal potential and how special we are. No family is perfect but we strive to make the home a refuge from the world. We want to make our home a peaceful place where we can cultivate family bonds. As a family we want to work together and prepare to make the essential covenants to be able to live together forever after this life in our family units. Show more Show less

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

Janet
Chastity is reserving physical intimacy for after marriage. This sexual intimacy is such a beautiful and powerful display of love that it is to be reserved for that special time. When we do this we are showing the respect and love we have for ourselves and our bodies, as the gift from God that they are. Through our dress, language and behavior we also show our self worth and respect for who we are. The neat thing about being modest is the strong self confidence that is exhibited by your outward appearance. There is a power that comes from knowing that we are children of a loving Heavenly Father. As parents teach their children that simple truth, that self confidence will develop and as the desire to be modest in dress, language and behavior will come naturally. I know that this was the case in my life and am super grateful for the teachings of my parents and the high self confidence it cultivated in knowing of my individual worth as a daughter of God.
