Hi I'm Janet

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a happily married woman and mom of four children and a grandmother of ten. I was attending college when my husband and I were married and had completed two of years of school at Brigham Young University. When my husband graduated, we had three of our children and were expecting our fourth and he was working three seperate jobs! It was a busy time for us, and looking back we would not change a thing! We have been richly blessed with each child. They are each married now and leading successful lives. I love to read, sew, cook, go for walks with my husband, drink hot cocoa and savor the time with our family! At this time, my husband and I are serving a three year Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Florida. We love this call to serve!

Why I am a Mormon

I was "born" into the church. Meaning, I was raised by two parents who were Mormons. At a very early age I began to feel a deep love for my Heavenly Father and a tangible connection to Him. I was baptized at eight of years of age and loved going to church and hearing of God's love for me and all His children. Throughout my life I have felt the guidance of forces beyond this life guiding me in decisions I was to make. I believe I was guided to accept standards that would bless me and strengthen me in situations I would face and help me overcome mistakes that I have made. My faith in our Savior, Jesus Christ, has truly given me a purpose in life and a desire to become more like Him. I am thankful for the blessings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that God lives and that Jesus is the Christ, chosen to come to this earth and carry out God's Plan of Salvation for His children. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only church that contains all truths, covenants, and ordinances that will bring us back into the presence of God. I know that God is our Father and that He loves us, His children. I know that the Book of Mormon is the Word of God. It is another witness, along with the Bible, that Jesus is the Christ. I know that Joseph Smith was the Prophet through which the Savior restored His church to the earth. It is the same organization which existed when Christ was on the earth. I know that Thomas S. Monson has been chosen by God to be His Prophet on the earth at this time. I know that God has provided a way for us to return to Him, and it is through following His gospel. I share these things with you in the sacred name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

My husband and I are serving as Mission President over 150 Missionaries at the present time in Florida. This is a great work that the Lord has organized to teach His children of His love for them and what they need to do to experience peace and joy in this life and to be able return to His presence. We love working with the Missionaries and helping them to better understand their call to serve. We love the people of the area we are called to serve in.
