Hi I'm Josett Weinert

I am a ballroom dancer. A public health fanatic, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up the youngest of seven children and the runt of the family being no bigger then five foot one. I have five sisters and one brother. In high school I lived and breathed sports. You could find me cheering for the football team, running and pole vaulting, or doing gymnastics on the bars. Once I was 18 I moved out of the house to get an education at BYU. I started having no idea what I wanted to do in life, but things started to fall into place. I got really interested in the body and health. So I though about nursing, which soon developed into public health, the health of an entire population. I started learning to love the Utah mountains, and thus I got into rock climbing. I would climb every day after class, and I love the feeling of the rock on my hand. Rock climbing then lead me to love. I found a wonderful man who loved the rock just as me. We courted for almost two years before getting married. During that time I spent a semester abroad in Jerusalem studying religion. And that is my life so far... and I have a lot more to live.

Why I am a Mormon

My family is Mormon, and thus I was raised in the church. I remember going to young primary, then at age 12 I meet with the young women. I loved going to church and feeling the spirit. I remember thinking to myself in high school, should I go out and drink and be intimate with my boyfriend. Those ideas did not seem good to me. I was always happy to have a reason to say no to my friends when they asked if I wanted alcohol. I could say "Sorry Im a Mormon and it against my religion.: Soon after that no one would ask me they only respected me. After I left my parents to go to school, I had a time where I thought, am I only living this religion because I was raised in it? And every time I asked that question the answer was no. I live it because I choose to, Because I feel, know, and believe that it is the only true religion on this earth. My sister growing up, choose to not practice the mormon religion. After she had her third child she thought to herself, Is there one true church? And if so I want to raise my family in it. After some searching and praying she found the missionaries and came back to the religion her family lived. I know that the Book of Mormon, along with the bible are true, as far as they are translated correctly. I know that God lives, and loves all of his children. I know that I am one of his daughters and that he loves me individually. I know that there is a prophet on this earth, President Thomas S Monson, just as there were in biblical days. I know that this religion was restored to the earth through Joseph Smith the Prophet. I believe these things because I have prayed and asked the Father if they be true. I know this to be the one and the only true church on the earth today, and living by it teachings can bring you closer to God then any other church. And I say these words in the name of our Savior, even Jesus Christ, Amen

How I live my faith

I live my Faith daily and consistently. Every morning I try and have a personal scripture study along with a good morning prayer where I ask my Father for guidance and direct in my day. Every night my spouse and I pray together and separately and read the scriptures together. Each Sunday I go to church for three hours and learn about the Savior, and how I can better my life to act and be more like him. Each day I try to do what Christ would do if he were her. I try to be his hands. I love being a mormon, and have commandments that keep me clean and pure.
