Hi I'm Jansen

I'm a periodontist. I wear overalls on the weekend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a happily married man with two beautiful daughters. I believe that I have a responsibility to provide and care for my family. I love to work hard and play hard. I'm always up for going fishing, playing a board game, or watching a game of college football. I served a mission in the Dominican Republic.

Why I am a Mormon

There's a feeling you get when you know that something is good. After having made choices for many years, I've come to know that the sweetest joys have come into my life when I listen to the feelings in my heart, while the deepest sorrows come when I ignore them. I know that true peace and ultimate joy comes from following Jesus Christ. How do you develop an eternal perspective when the world selfishly says to live for the now? Christ didn't leave us alone. He left a guide for us to have here when He wasn't. We just have to have faith and listen to it. When I read the Book of Mormon and prayed to know if it was true, I had a feeling come over me that it was true. Being a member of the church brings me joy and gives me direction.

How I live my faith

I try to follow the example of Jesus Christ. I love my family more than work. I try to be the best husband and father I can. I teach a Sunday school class each week with kids from age 12 to 18.
