Hi I'm Janelle Edwards

I grew up in Utah. I want to be a fashion designer. I sing & play guitar. I love smiling & laughter. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Aloha! I am a person who just loves life! I am currently attending college, majoring in fashion design. My favorite motto is keep smiling. I was definitely rasied in the greatest family that has taught me to live, laugh, and love! I love theatre and being on stage! I also love to ballroom dance, especially when they include tricks and flips! Music is a huge part of my life as I do love to sing and play my pink guitar! And of course I have a passion for fashion! I love to shop and skim the stores for all the latest fashions! I hope to start my own modest clothing line for girls in the world who have a hard time finding modest clothing! My clothing designs definitely explain my personality-bright and girly! I love to hike in the beautiful mountains. And I love to watch BYU sports! Staying active and finding service everyday is always on my list of things to do everyday! :)

Why I am a Mormon

I was so fortunate to grow up a Mormon in the true Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have a true testimony of this wonderful true church that was restored by a true prophet, Joseph Smith. We need to recognize its fullness and always remember to share it with others. I know that the scriptures contain principles and doctorines to follow, and is the source of guidence and light to encourage and help us to return back to our loving Father in Heaven to live in eternal happiness. I know the scriptures are true. I know that we have a true living Prophet today, President Monson. He teaches by the Spirit, helping each and every one of us find happiness and joy in life. I know that our Heavenly Father lives and hears and answers our prayers. I have a strong love and personal relationship with my Father and know that He loves me. I know my Savior, Jesus Christ, lives and that He loves me because He atoned for me so that I can be forgiven of my sins and return to live with Him again. I know that He truly gave us the greatest gift to ever be given. He is my greatest example as I try to follow in His footsteps everyday. I know the the plan of salvation is eternal and that families can be together forever! I testify these things to you that I know it is true. This is a church of abundant miracles and I love to count my blessings everyday for I know that this church is my source of true happiness! I say this in the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I have the wonderful opportunity to serve in the Primary in my ward. I teach the 6-7 year old children and they are so bright and spiritual that I feel they teach me more than I teach them. They are so sweet, pure, and love their Heavenly Father so much. They truly are a reminder for me to grow to know my Father in Heaven and teach me to do good everyday. I love my calling and am so thankful for it.

What is being a Mormon like?

Janelle Edwards
Being a member of the Mormon church is the greatest happiness in my life. We are never alone in this church. If ever I feel scared, confused, and not knowing what to do, I know that I have a Father in Heaven who hears my prayers and answers them. They are answered immediately, or sometimes they are answered not for a while, but they are always answered. Other sources of help are the scriptures, church magazines, and Brothers and Sisters of the church. Being a Mormon also keeps me healthy. Because of the Word of Wisdom and Commandments, I know that doing anything harmful to my body will harm me and my health. Being a Mormon keeps me going everyday and keeps me loving life, laughing, and happy! I'm so thankful to be a Mormon, knowing there is always help and knowing that I can always help others.
