Hi I'm Janet
I'm a Mormon. I joined the Church in 1995. I am a registered nurse.
I crochet, rescue dogs, a mom and a grandmother. My son (and his family) and I are the only members of the Mormon Chuch. I earned my nursing degrees after I was 50 yrs old. I love doing genealogy and walking my dog.
Why I am a Mormon
I grew up Protestant, when I was 18, I asked my minister if we had prophets in the Old Testament and Jesus Christ in the New Testament, why don't we have prophets today? My minister sid " Good question, I don't know the answer." I went to many chuches then my husband almost died. I prayed that if his life was spared, I would join any chuch Heavenly Father would have me join. Husband got better and I went back to school. I had to have a philoshy class and World Religions fulfilled the slot. The first night of class we learned that we had to do a term paper and a presentation on any other religion than Christiananity. I approached the professor and explained where I grew up and that I wasn't sure if the Mormons were Christians or not and I wanted to do my paper and presentation on them. My prof said "OK" and I started researching. I even checked out a Book of Mormon from the library and read it. I knew that book is true from the first chapter. I takled to Church officials and missionaries. That was all it took to convince me to join the Church.
How I live my faith
I just moved into a branch and went to Church for the first time today. I am very happy to be part of God's secret weapon and do service to everyone - member or not. I visit other women and see if they need anything that I can do for them. Whenever I am working as a nurse, I remember to treat my patients and family members as if they were my own. I don't drink coffee and I'm not a "skinny" lady. I never did drink coffee or smoke anything. Maybe that's why my friends always thought I was Mormon.
