Hi I'm Janine

I'm a Spaniard and a Texan. I'm a student and a loving wife. I'm a mormon

About Me

I love music. I love singing and dancing. I've sung in choirs all around Texas and I've danced on many stages. I play the guitar, a little piano, and the recorder, baby! I'm attending college at BYU. I've always loved school. Learning new things is a passion of mine. I am passionate about art, music, architecture, and dance. Oh! And warm fuzzy socks! I am not a fan of cold weather (hence the fuzzy socks) and it has always been a dream of mine to visit some place tropical. I love the beach! I love food! Especially the food from Spain; if you haven't been there before, you really should go! I've lived in Barcelona, Texas, Utah, and New Jersey, but have traveled through and visited many other places in the US and Europe

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love the lifestyle. I love the people, but mostly I love the gospel. When I read from the Book of Mormon, or listen to the prophet I can feel the spirit testifying to me, saying it is true. I've visited areas of importance of the church history, like Nauvoo and Utah, and there is a spirit there that is so powerful. I have no idea where I would be without this doctrine in my life. I know the Savior Jesus Christ lives, I know that He knows me personally and that He loves me. I believe in the family. I love my family and know that they are gifts from God. I know that the prophet today Thomas Monson, is called of God, and I know that the Book of Mormon is the most true book on earth. I love this gospel and I am grateful to have it in my life.

How I live my faith

Firstly I have communication with my Father in Heaven everyday through the wonderful gift of prayer. I love to read my scriptures; I always find the answers I need in there. I've taught the youth in the church, and also the women's group. I've been at the head of many activities and service projects involving church members. But most importantly, I just try to be a good example. I try to act as Christ would have me act. I try to be loving, kind, compassionate, a hard worker, honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and faithful. I love the gospel of Christ and I try each day to live it.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Yes! That's one of my favorite things about the gospel! I get to spend eternity with my honey bun! We are sealed to each other here on earth and those relationships extend into the next life. Show more Show less
