Hi I'm Janessa

I'm studying Business Management. I love doing anything outdoors and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've grown up in Colorado all my life and I love it. It is definitely my favorite state. The mountains are one of my favorite places to be because it is so beautiful and peaceful. Whenever I need solace or time to think I head to the mountains. Ever since I was little I have loved driving anything I could. I've driven motorcycles, snowmobiles, ATVs, cars, tractors, and trucks. I love playing tennis and volleyball. My family means so much to me and spending time with them is definitely a favorite thing to do. I am currently studying business management with an emphasis in Global Supply Chain Management. I love trying new recipes, especially for desserts. Basically I just love life and where I'm at right now. I have amazing friends and the best family on earth with the four cutest nephews who like to keep me busy, which I don't mind one little bit. I look forward to the future with a bright hope because I know who I am and where I'm going.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Christ's church. I came to know this for myself in my youth when I knelt down and prayed to Heavenly Father specifically asking this question and had a feeling of love and peace come over me. Since then I have also come to know that the Book of Mormon is truly another testament of Jesus Christ and it is the truest book on the earth today. Joseph Smith did see God the Father and His son Jesus Christ in the Sacred Grove and it was he who restored the true gospel to the earth today. I'm a Mormon because I know President Monson is our living prophet today who leads us and guides us towards Christ. I know Christ lives and that He is my Savior. He atoned for each one of us so we can repent and be able to live with Him again. Even if we have made mistakes I know all that Christ asks is for us to come back to Him again and He will make us whole again. This gives me so much hope and is just another reason why I'm a Mormon. Temples provide the best blessings to each one of us and I'm so grateful that my family was born into the Covenant so that we can be together for all eternity. I'm a Mormon because being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ is the reason I'm so happy in life and it is the reason I get out of bed in the morning looking forward to each day. I love this gospel and the joys and blessings it has brought into my life. I'm a Mormon because this gospel makes me a better person and because it's true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best each day to be an example of Christ. I admit that I'm not perfect by any means. I'm far from it, but I hope that by living the gospel everyday of my life I am getting closer to that end goal of being perfect even as Christ is. I serve in my ward by visiting other sisters and helping them with their needs and currently I am helping plan a community service project for my ward to participate in. Each day I dress modestly and use clean language. I don't drink alcohol or use drugs. I live my faith by studying my scriptures each day, trying to learn more about the truths taught in them. Daily scripture study gives me daily strength to keep me going on the right path. I also say my prayers daily and I love this chance to communicate with my Heavenly Father and really pour my heart to Him. I know He is always listening. I live my faith by trying to be a good neighbor to those around me. I live my faith by living my life so that those who know me and don't know Christ will want to know Christ because they know me.
