Hi I'm Janey

I grew up in Minnesota. I go to school in Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 21. I love sports, cooking and my family. I am in college but I'm not a very good student. Instead of studying I prefer to bike ride down the canyon, eat popsicles, watch movies, make slip n slides, make ice cream, go swimming, play four square, or just about anything else with my friends. Last summer I lived in Fiji for three months to do some humanitarian work. It was one of the best experiences of my life. I love everything about the country, the people I served, the people I served with and the projects I got to do.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised Mormon. My parents are Mormon, my brother is Mormon, my sisters are Mormon. When I was young I didn't question it. Going to church was what my family did. Its what my Mormon friends did. It was normal. As I got older and more involved in church activities, I wondered if it really was true. If the things which I had grown up learning were things that I should still believe in. As I prayed to God for an answer to my questions, I felt peace. I didn't have any miraculous visions or wild confirmations of the truth but I knew that the things that I had been learning and believing all my life were the things of God. To this day I know that being a member of the Mormon church has blessed my life so much. I know that by making good choices in my life I have been able to have happiness and that the knowledge of gospel gives me hope and faith in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church every sunday. As a youth, I participated in activities with other youth in the church doing service, learning more about the gospel, or just having fun with one another.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Read the Book of Mormon and pray sincerely to know if it is true. If you really want to know the truth, God will answer your prayers. Show more Show less
