Hi I'm Janet

I'm a wife, full-time mother of 2 adopted children and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a full-time mom of 2 children and have been for the past 23 years. It has been my blessing to be at home with them to share in all of their triumphs and challenges through the years. These two children are not mine biologically, but were sent to us through loving birth parents. We love our adopted children as though they had been born to us, but know that they carry with them many burdens genetically they inherited from those birth parents.

Why I am a Mormon

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is an anchor in my life. Through the Holy Ghost I have been comforted, helped, guided and prodded along the path back to my Father in Heaven. I have felt his spirit many times guiding my life as I have parented my two adopted children. Being a parent is one of the most challenging jobs I have ever had! But, with the gift of the Holy Ghost in my life, I have been able to confirm the correctness of the path I am taking as a parent for my children. Resources, people and places have been provided for us at just the right time as I seek to know His will for my children. It is marvelous to behold just how much my Heavenly Father loves my children as I witness blessings unfolding in their lives. It is wonderful to be an instrument in His hand to bless my childrens' lives. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has the complete Gospel of Jesus Christ, and I am a better parent as I listen to His prophets. They are the "watchmen on the tower" and as I listen to their counsel, I am a better parent, wife and daughter of my Heavenly Father. This world has many loud voices giving us all kinds of information, but it is a comfort to know His will through His servants, our Prophet and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.

How I live my faith

I strive each and every day to be the best example I can of the Savior, Jesus Christ. I want all those I come in contact with to see the best in themselves and others and do good things in their lives. If questions come up about my beliefs, I have no problem in answering how the Gospel of Jesus Christ gives me peace each and every day.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

Each and every day I ask my Father in Heaven to bless my life so that I can live worthy of and follow the promptings of the Holy Ghost. I have promptings each and every day about things that need to be done with my family and friends and I am earnestly striving to follow and act on those promptings. This brings me much peace in this turbulent world. I have a peace that cannot be described. I know that my Father in Heaven is aware of my needs through this gift of the Holy Ghost, and know that each and every one of His children can have this priceless gift in their life.
