Hi I'm Janice

I'm a grandmother and a homemaker and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a grandmother and a homemaker. I am a college graduate who married a military man and spent twelve years moving around both in and out of the country. It was while stationed in the Washington D.C. area that my husband and I became converts to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. After more moves and an ever expanding family, we decided to leave the military so that we could put down more permanent roots for our children. My life has revolved around family and church. My interests are politics and world affairs, gardening, sewing, nature, nutrition, reading and family history.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Christian faith, regularly attended church and had a strong testimony of God, the Eternal Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. I wasn't really looking for anything else, but when the Mormon missionaries told me that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ had appeared to man in our day, I had to investigate such a startling claim. My need to know led to missionary discussions and a personal investigation of about one year in which I attended church, read the Book of Mormon and tried to leave no stone unturned. It's not in my nature to hurry on anything that's a life changer. In my search, logic and spiritual intimations supported each other. I felt the Spirit confirm so many things, such as a spiritual pre-existence, the separateness of the three members of the Godhead, but Their oneness in purpose, the eternal nature of family relationships,the need for continuing revelation, the need for priesthood authority, and so much more. The day finally came when I knew I needed to be baptized, because I had a testimony and needed to act upon it. That faith and testimony have grown through the years. It has never let me down, and I am so grateful to Heavenly Father for giving it to me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be the person my Saviour wants me to be. I involve myself through time and resources with organizations and individuals who promote causes that are in harmony with Christian ideals.
