Hi I'm Janine

I'm a wife, mom of four, and grew up in CA. I have an etiquette blog and am a regular contributor on KSL (NBC's affiliate in UT).

About Me

I'm a busy wife and mother- I have four children who are growing too quickly. They range in age from 13-6. I keep an etiquette blog for fun and enjoy that immensely and I am also co-owner of Vintage Hem. With all these things I'm plenty busy. We have a dog, two cats, two sugar gliders, 15 chickens, and some fish. We like to call it "the farm" even though we are in the burbs. My husband loves to garden and work on projects with our son and I love traveling, gardening, and anything that involves the outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

 I was born into a Mormon family but they weren't always as active as I would have hoped. I had the opportunity to challenge my childhood beliefs when I was in high school and then realized that I truly did have a testimony of the Gospel. I went to church sometimes on my own growing up looking to my amazing youth leaders and Seminary teachers as examples as well as my friends who had good values, Mormon or not. I'm grateful for the opportunity I was given to stand on my own and realize that the Gospel is always perfect, although as humans, we are not. I married a wonderful man who honors his Priesthood and shares the blessings of his wisdom with our family. I'm blessed with a firm and unshakable testimony of this restored Gospel, that it is Jesus Christ's church restored on the earth once more. I feel overwhelmed by the blessings of an eternal marriage and family, deeper than I could possibly express. I'm grateful that my testimony has become the great unshakable anchor in my life- a testimony that Jesus is the Christ and my personal Savior.

How I live my faith

I love those around me and try to live my life as Christ lived...which I fall short of many times. What would Jesus do? Is often a question that I find myself not only asking my children, but myself. I enjoy the women who have become sisters to me and the selfless service that is rendered on my behalf. I have the great blessing of teaching the 12-13 year olds in our area and I couldn't love what I do more. They are so eager to learn and their passion and desire for the Gospel is just blossoming.
