Hi I'm Jana

I am an Engineer by training, a researcher at heart, and a stay at home mom by choice, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom of 3 very active kids. I have a wonderful husband who is more active than the kids and keeps me on my toes trying and learning new sports and hobbies. I love being outside and can often be found on my bike, in a kayak, on skis, snowshoes, in a tent, or just in a good pair of hiking boots. I studied Engineering and used to define myself by that title. However, my family has helped me discover that I am so much more than a degree. I have enjoyed the journey so far and look forward to more.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a Mormon, so I had a bit of a head start in finding the church. However, like most good teenagers, I questioned everything my parents taught me. I had to find out for myself what I wanted for my life. I watched, I learned as much as I could about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I learned about other religions. The teachings of the Church made sense to me, logically. I read the scriptures, I asked questions of others. I prayed and asked Heavenly Father for answers to my difficult questions. I came to know that Heavenly Father and Jesus did appear to Joseph Smith. I came to know that the Book of Mormon is scripture, from God to His children. I know that Heavenly Father cares for His children and we are not here by accident. He has a plan for us. We existed before we were born on earth. We lived with, and knew Heavenly Father, we accepted His plan and took joy in knowing that it would help us each, individually to grow and progress. We have real purpose here. That knowledge gave, and still gives me, the strength and peace I need in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to show those around me how much Heavenly Father cares about them.
