Hi I'm Jan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom of 5. I really like to mow the lawn and smell the newly mown grass smell. I love teaching teens to have faith. I am a sales person. I am a Mormom. I love my Savior, Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family. My parents and brother are members of the Church. It was a wonderful family to grow up in. But for all of that, I had to make the decision for myself to find out if what I had been taught all my life was true. There were no big visons or revelations, but through reading the scriptures, praying daily, attending my church meetings, the quiet confirmation that came that everything was true. I know for myself that Jesus atoned for me and everyone. I know that Joseph Smith restored Jesus Christ gospel on the earth in these latter days. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. I know that families can be together forever through the sealing powers of the priesthood in Holy Temples. I am so grateful that me and my sweetheart enjoy this blessing in our lives. I know that there is a real prophet on the earth today. President Thomas S. Monson is that prophet at this time. I know that God is our Father in Heaven and that He loves me and my family. I love Him as well, and I know through my own experience that He hears and answers our prayers. I know that He is only a prayer away when things are hard.

How I live my faith

I love teaching youth and teens and have done so most of my adult life.  One of my favorite callings in the Church has been in the seminary program. This is a class for teens before school to help them understand and learn to rely on the Savior Jesus Christ and His Atonement. I have voluteered in many schools when my children were young. I love the Visiting Teaching program of the church, which allows me to be visited and to visit other women of the church. No one is ever truely alone.
