Hi I'm Janet Knighton

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of 3 boys and married to my best friend. I like white water rafting, to read, camp, hike, swim and just have FUN!!! I love my Father in Heaven and my Savior Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the principles taught are simple. I know I am a Child of God and that I was part of His family before I came to this earth. I will be a part of His family when I die. I know there is life after death and we will see our loved ones again and will continue our relationships that we had here on earth. I know that our Heavenly Father loves all of us and has provided a way for us to live with Him for eternity. I love Jesus Christ and His simple teachings of doing good to others and being kind and loving. This is what we teach as parents, and I think if more people followed these simple teachings as adults, our world would be such a better place. I am thankful for a loving Heavenly Father who provided a Savior for us. I know that if we repent of our sins and have a true change of heart our sins can be forgiven. I love my Heavenly Father and my brother Jesus Christ. I have a personal relationship with each of them which helps me get through the hard times. I am human and make mistakes but the atonement helps me overcome my weakness and be strengthened in my desire to do better.

How I live my faith

Each Sunday my husband and my 3 boys and I attend church. We partake of bread and water to remember the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for us. We also try to have a family night once a week. We pray and read our scriptures together as a family. My boys are in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts. My husband is a Cub Scout leader. I meet once a week with girls age 8-11 to help them with Developing Talents, Serving Others, and Learning the gospel. For this weeks activity we are decorating cookies to give to others. I try to be a good example to all. I pray and read my scriptures daily. I talk to Heavenly Father and thank Him for all my blessings and ask him for help I need. I have faith that He will help me. I try to be a good example at all times. If I make mistakes, I repent of them, and try to learn from them to become a better person and more Christlike.
