Hi I'm Janet

I call Utah, Arizona, California, and Colorado home. I'm a nursing student and I've chosen to be a Mormon!

About Me

I've been married for 24 years, I've raised two children, and now I'm pursuing a Bachelor of Science Degree to become a Registered Nurse. My favorite sports to play are foil fencing and target shooting with my Glock. I like to watch football and La Crosse. I love to learn new things, visit new places, and meet new people. I like reading and watching all kinds of movies. I love the mountians, the desert, and the beach!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because as a teenager, my best friends were Mormons; and I saw their enthusiasm for righteous living and the happiness they enjoyed as they lived the gospel. I have always known Jesus is my Savior and my example and that we have a Father in Heaven who loves us. My life has been filled with answered prayers, manifestations of priesthood power, and I've been surrounded by many admirable people. I hold on to these experiences when things gets tough! The good and bad events in my life have solidified my faith in God and strengthened my testimony of the gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being kind to others, loving my family members, dressing modestly, volunteering in the community, accepting myself and others as they are, living simply, and keeping my covenants.

What are some of the ways that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints helps those around the world?

The LDS Church helps in many situations around the world. We build wells and other water systems where people have no access to clean water. In disaster areas, we provide medical and other needed supplies like food, blankets, clothing, soap, toothbrushes, and temporary shelter. We have medical teams that volunteer their time and provide equipment to train doctors how to perform neonatal resuscitation in countries where newborn mortality is high. We distribute about 40,000 wheelchairs each year in 70 countries. We train local medical personnel in developing countries how to perform eye surgeries, and provide equipment that is essential to the procedure. Show more Show less
