Hi I'm Janalyn

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am lucky enough to be a stay-at-home mom with a great husband and five great kids who keep me busy. I live in New York state, but grew up in a small town in Utah. I worked as a Speech-Language Pathologist before having a family. I love to spend time playing with my family. We love to hike, bike, and wander in the great outdoors. I love to play sports, garden, sew, dance, be creative, sing, be with friends, play games with my kids, and go on dates with my husband.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a wonderful Mormon family who gave me the confidence to be whatever I wanted to be. I learned that when I follow Jesus Christ and make good choices, I am happy. I continue to follow Jesus Christ because I feel the same things today. As I follow Jesus Christ, I have peace in my life. I find great joy in teaching these same things to my own children and I feel so happy when they make good choices, too.

How I live my faith

Being the mother of five young children is busy, fun, overwhelming, exciting and hard--all at the same time. But, Heavenly Father wants me to have a family and has promised that I will have joy with them. I rely on those promises daily. Many times my children have problems that I don't know how to solve. I pray to ask God for help. I ponder and search for answers in the scriptures. And then I begin to have ideas come into my mind of ways to help my children. These ideas are not mine--they come from the Lord. But, as I implement these ideas with my children, things work out and I am amazed at the happiness that I feel. As I trust in Jesus Christ and teach my family about His gospel, the joyful moments happen even during overwhelming times.
