Hi I'm Jan

I'm a wife, mom, and diabetic. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife and mom and have two boys. I'm a crafty kind of gal and love to create things with my hands including knitting, crocheting, sewing, quilting, and greeting cards. I love to garden. I also enjoy any kind of woodwork that involves using my chop saw and nail gun. I work at a school district as a para-educator. I enjoy working with children and youth. I was diagnosed with diabetes when I was 16. I'm insulin-dependent and have been on an insulin pump for 14 years. Before my first pregnancy, I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to have children because of the diabetes. Fortunately, tho, I've been blessed with two healthy boys.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I choose to be one. I love this church. I was born and raised in the church and had the opportunity to serve a full-time mission when I was 22. As a missionary, I was able to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with many people which strengthened my own testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel. I continue to keep my testimony strong by scripture study, prayer, service, attending church meetings, and striving to keep the commandments.

How I live my faith

In The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, there is an organization called Relief Society which is for all women 18 and older. In my ward, I serve in the presidency of Relief Society. I also visit teach three women each month which I really enjoy. This gives me the opportunity to share a spiritual message, get to know the women in my ward and help them out if needed. I love to serve. I am my happiest when I follow the example of Jesus Christ. He is my Savior and loves and knows me. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is his church. It's not always easy living the mormon life but it's well worth it. It keeps me grounded and focused on what's important in life.
