Hi I'm Janice

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! I grew up in a really small town and would love to live in one again someday. I am married and we have raised nine children, two which have passed on. I love to read and sew, and I used to do oil painting and a few water colors. I also really like playing games with friends and-or family. I like to travel when I can. We often travel to visit our children and grandchildren, especially for special occasions. I also love it when they visit us. I especially love it when we are able to have a reunion with all of them at once, although it gets pretty crazy. I have always enjoyed singing and was in high school choir as well as in college choir. I was actually the main character in the musical HMS Pinafore in High School! I have always sung in my church choir as well. My voice doesn't work quite as well anymore as it used to but I still try. I also played the flute in high school and still play it occasionally. Music has always been very important to me. All of our children played musical instruments. My name is Janice and I am a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to parents that were members so it was natural for me to be a member as a child. As I grew and studied the gospel for myself I developed my own testimony of the truth of the Book of Mormon. My whole life and the way I live it is influenced by my membership in this church. I love the Church of Jesus Christ (Mormon) and it's teachings and have raised our children to love it for themselves. It is a way of life, and I believe it is a really wonderful way of life. I know it is the true church.

How I live my faith

I attend my church meetings regularly. I have had many callings over the years including working with youth, teaching classes to adults, visiting families and also ladies in their homes and making myself available to them when they need help or just company. I have worked in the nursery with little children up to three and also in the children,s classes age three up to twelve. I have been choir director many times in the past. My current calling is to encourage and help people build up a supply of food and other needed things for times of emergency.
