Hi I'm Janette (Jae)

I'm working on an Anthropology major. I'm an avid writer. I was a college volleyball player. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently out of school but am working to save up money to go back to school. I'm majoring in Anthropology. I love reading books of all kinds (horror not so much). I'm aspiring to be an author in the near future in young adult fantasy. I played community college volleyball for two years. I love learning history, particularly archaeology.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church but have never really wanted to leave. When I'm at church and am around other people of my faith, the feeling that I get while in church hasn't been felt anywhere else and I don't want to lose it. That feeling, which we call the Holy Ghost, is my constant companion and helps me get through trying times both at home, school, or work. If I didn't have the Holy Ghost in my life I know I wouldn't be where I am today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example. I treat others like I want to be treated. I try to be the best person I can be in a world that looks down at being kind and friendly. I visit other woman in my ward and offer any help they might need. I'm part of what's called the preparedness committee which helps people in the ward with making 72 hour kits and food supply in case of a natural disaster or other trauma.

What is the Relief Society?

Janette (Jae)
The Relief Society is a women's organization that helps mother's and single women through hardships, whether financial, family, or otherwise. We give support to those that have lost a family member by bringing food or offer our services like helping with laundry or watching small children. We help teach women to be prepared in case of a natural disaster and to have a food supply ready in case something like this occurs. The Relief Society also has a purpose of strengthening families and the importance of spending good, quality time with each family member and together as a whole. We encourage seeing movies together that's children oriented and that the TV shows watched in the household don't impede on our views of chastity and what families need to be. We try and teach other women the importance of being mother's, not that they should give up their own independence. We believe that being mother's in the most important role a women can have. They are instrumental in the rearing of children. They are what hold the family together. It's widely said that the first five years of a child's life is when they learn the most.
