Hi I'm Jan

I was raised in Manila. I love art, music, and kids! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love classical art, classical music, nature, cooking, watching documentaries, learning about other cultures and I love kids! I pursue art as much as I can :D

Why I am a Mormon

When I read the New Testament I gained a sure knowledge that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. I also read and prayed about the Book of Mormon, and I know it is from God. By praying I also gained a sure knowledge that Joseph Smith is a true prophet and that God has a prophet on earth today, Thomas S. Monson.

How I live my faith

I served as a missionary for 18 months at Temple Square in Salt Lake City. I have served at Church teaching young people and adult women the scriptures and gospel of Christ. I now serve at Church helping with children.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Jan
The Book of Mormon is a history of ancient Americans who are the ancestors of today's American Indians. It relates how God chose prophets and established his Church among them, and tells of Christ's visit in Ancient America after his resurrection. Teachings from the Book of Mormon give me strength and guidance day by day. It has changed my life and I know it will change yours too if you sincerely read and pray about it! Show more Show less

Why don’t women hold the priesthood in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? How do Mormon women lead in the Church?

Jan
Men and women are equal but not identical, and thus have different responsibilities. The priesthood is associated with certain responsibilities that men do. Women are blessed with important and glorious responsibilities equal to the men's but do not need to hold the priesthood to do so. Bearing and taking care of children and teaching in the home are important roles that fulfill God's purposes and make the family strong. Bearing and taking care of children may not be held in high regard by some in the world today--but in the Church of Jesus Christ this is considered as a partnership with God, a very sacred role. Women also teach in Church the scriptures and the gospel of Christ, lead other women, youth, and children. I, a woman, have been blessed to fulfill different leadership positions in Church and be led by other women whose faith and good works have infuenced my life. Show more Show less

What is the Law of Chastity?

Jan
The Law of Chastity is a God-given commanment which states that individuals should not have sexual relationships except within marriage with their legal husband or wife. Marriage is between man and woman. I know that by keeping this law one will have peace of conscience. If this law were obeyed people in the world would be much happier! There will be greater trust between couples, more responsible parents and the world would be spared of sexual diseases. Show more Show less
