Hi I'm Janelle

I'm a student, a (shy) singer/songwriter, a current missionary in Canada and eyup! I'm a Mormon!:)

About Me

Put simply, I'm a kid in an adults body. :) I love to laugh and smile every chance I have and believe that cereal can be eaten for any meal. I enjoy the outdoors, sports, dance parties, thunderstorms, writing music, and eating cheez-its by the handful!:) I sing, play guitar and piano and recently started writing music of my own. I am currently serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Canada Toronto Mission and am absolutely LOVING it! Before the mission, I was a university student living away from home, studying exercise science, with the intention of becoming a physician assistant, and plan to continue doing so when I go back home. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true, for I have asked God and have received a witness, by the power of the Holy Ghost, for myself. But don't take my word for it, find out for yourself! and I promise you, you will never regret it. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Latter-Day Saint family, so I was raised as a Mormon, but there came a time when I needed to find out for myself. I couldn't lean on my parents testimonies any longer. And now I can fervently say that there is not a shadow of a doubt in my mind as to the truthfulness of this Gospel for I have read the Book of Mormon, asked to know if it was true, and felt the most calming, beautiful feeling I have ever felt in my life. I continue each day to have that feeling whenever I read that book or pray to my Heavenly Father. I love being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, because it brings me true and everlasting happiness. I love this gospel. With ALL of my heart. I testify that I know my Redeemer lives today and He has a plan for each one of us. The Lord loves you! You are so incredibly special to Him, and He lives and wants you to be happy and to come unto Him. You keep up a smile, that Book of Mormon in your hands and the love of the Lord in your heart, and you will be unstoppable!

How I live my faith

Some think that simply having faith is enough. But as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I know that "faith without works is dead". I go to church services every sunday and I try to spend each day during the week improving myself and serving others. I know I'm not perfect, but each morning I realize I've been given the gift to live another day, so therefore I want to spend each moment proving to my Father in Heaven that I appreciate all that He has blessed me with. Life is full of challenges, but why frown when I know my Heavenly Father lives and loves me, as He does to you as well?
