Hi I'm Janan

I am a Graphic Designer, I am an advocate for women's rights and I am a Mormon.

About Me

Hello! I'm a Graphic Designer living on the East Coast. I have loved creating art since I was little and eventually I got my degree in Visual Communications Design. I love to be creative and I try to find ways to harness my love for creating something new. I also have a passion for running track and have done so for 11 years now. The motto I go by is 'Enjoy every moment'....life is too short not to!

Why I am a Mormon

One day I was sitting at a bus stop outside of the university where I was taking summer school. Two sister missionaries came to me and we started to discuss our faiths. I was raised as a Methodist but had fallen off in many ways. I knew that I believed in Christ and His teachings but was not very active in that faith. As I began to take more lessons with the missionaries, my heart knew that joining the church was the right decision. Not only did I admire the principles on which the church stands by but also the active faith that all members adhere to. I wanted to become closer to God and by joining the church I have been given the tools to do so.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday and try to surround myself with people and things that will uplift my spirit. Every Thursday me and a couple of other church members play Basketball. It's a great stress reliever and being around other members helps keep things in perspective throughout the week.

What is faith?

Faith is believing in more than yourself. Show more Show less

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Janan
Yes and Yes! And what a blessing it is to know that not only can husbands and wives but also families truly can be together forever. That death is not the end but rather the beginning. Before I joined the church I always wondered what happened after we died. Yes if you believed in God and were a good person you'd go to Heaven. But what about your love ones who did the same? How would I find them? That's a whole lotta smiling faces to get through to find those who meant so much to you on Earth. But as a Latter-Day Saint I've found that I have no need to worry. That my family will always be with me, in this life and the next. That we can be sealed to them and them to us. That my partner is not just my partner on Earth but my partner for time and all eternity. Show more Show less
