Hi I'm Janelle

I'm a daughter, sister, friend, wife and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in California, Utah, Idaho and Texas. I enjoy traveling and have a top 10 list of places I would like to go. During my free time I enjoy reading and spending time with family and friends. I adore my husband and together we love to go to Disneyland.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church, but I believe everyone has a "conversion" story when you really know that the church is the true church of Christ on the Earth today. I was fortunate to learn this at a young age. I was invited to go to a friend's church meeting at the age of seven. I was so excited to go with her and see where she went to church. When I got home my mother asked me how it was and if I liked it. I did enjoy myself, but there was something different. It wasn't just the service, but it was a feeling. I explained to my mother how I felt and she told me that the feeling I missed was the Spirit. She was right and I have learned that the Spirit testifies of the truthfulness of the gospel by the feeling I get. It is just as strong as the words I speak or type. I am so thankful for that day because it was the day when I knew that The Church of Jesus Christ is the only true church on the Earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday by being me. I strive to practice what I preach and show others by example. During the week I work in an office and am the only Mormon some of my coworkers know. I am sometimes asked questions about the church and am happy to answer them. I am a firm believer that when you have a question about a religion to ask someone who is a member of that religion. It is better to go straight to the source. I love Sundays and going to church. I am lucky and teach Sunday School to the 3 year olds. They are full of energy and love. They bring a lot of joy to my life. I enjoy preparing my lessons because it reminds me of the basic church teachings.
