Hi I'm Janette

I'm a Mormon. I am a stay at home mom and I love making my home a safe and loving place for my family and others.

About Me

I am a wife,mother, daughter, sister, aunt and a friend. I love being married. I love when my husband winks at me. I have 5 children and I take care of other children before and after school. I enjoy having a home that welcomes many. I enjoy gardening. Each year I plant a new flower and learn about it. I let my children plan the garden and we take care of it together. We are really good at growing tomatoes. I enjoy crafts. I imagine things in my head and tell them to my husband. He mkes them for me and I decorate them. Recently my daughters and I have gotten into stamoing and making our own cards. I love music. I enjoy hearing a beat and dancing to it. It brings a smile to my face. Dancing is fun too. I think the violin is the prettiest sounding instrument. It calms me down. I also enjoy hearing my children playing the piano and flute. I can't wait to see what other instruments will join us. and helping little ones learn. I love to be organized. I always know the time and I love to look at my calendar and see that there are things to do that involve my family and others. I am a morning person. I enjoy waking up early to read, study and e-mail. I get my things out of the way so I can focus on my family when they wake up. I love to end my day with family prayer and hugs and kisses. I fall asleep on the couch every night while I watch tv with my husband.

Why I am a Mormon

Jesus Christ gave his life for me. This shows me so much love. Heavenly Father gave me such a wonderful place to learn, grow, and serve. I go to Church every Sunday to be reminded of this and to share with others what it means to me. I have been blessed with a family that I can be with forever and that brings me so much comfort. I grew up in this church and went often as a child but I did not fully understand what it all meant until I was an adult and chose to focus part of my day to learn and understand the gospel. I spend a little part of each day reading and studying my scriptures. I am grateful for all that Heavenly Father has done for me. Mostly for sending his only son to us. I am grateful for my parents for their love of the gospel and taking me to church when I was younger. It has brought me so much joy, love and comfort to my life. I will continue to go and to serve each day.

How I live my faith

Each day I give a little part of my time to read and study the gospel. I love having little ones around to teach. It helps me remember the simple things that are so important. I loved learning about Jesus when I was young and now that I am grown I get to appreciate it all over again while teaching. Not only do I teach but I am continuing to learn. I enjoy bringing home these lessons and discussing them with my children. I love to teach the children at church and during the week seeing them practice the things they have learned. I often hear " Hi sister, I will see you on Sunday". All of my friends and my kids friends know we are Mormon. They know Sundays, Mondays and Wednesdays are important days for us. As soon as we hear of an activity or a good lesson happening at church we immediately make a list of who we are going to invite. We often invite others to come into our home to play or have dinner. As soon as they walk in the can see a picture of Christ. I can see it make a special place in their heart and bring comfort to their life.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

There are so many people out every day who are in need of help. People we don't even know need help and I am glad that I am able to help them. Sometimes it is kids waiting for Dad to get the car fixed an or hanging on the side of the road. Sometimes my neighbor needs an egg or some sugar. Sometimes someone doesn't know how to use the Credit card machines at the gas station. It is good to help others no matter their faith. Show more Show less
