Hi I'm Janel

I grew up in Utah. I have been a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints my whole life; and I love it.

About Me

I love to play sports and to study in school. I am a the oldest daughter of two wonderful parents. I am currently planning on going on an LDS mission in January. I recently went to a college in Cedar City for a semester and am planning to attend college after my mission. I have made so many wonderful friends in and out of the church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I love God. He sent His son Jesus Christ to atone for my sins and die for me and I want to be the best I can. I know I am able to live with God and His son again if I live my life according to His will. I know the Book of Mormon is the true word of God and is here on earth for us to have questions answered and I know it goes hand in hand with the Bible. I know Joseph Smith did see God the Father and His son Jesus Christ and he did restore the true church on this earth again for us. I know that keeping the commandments and living to the best of our abilities we can return to live with Him again. I know that by being baptized we show that we are willing to put our trust in the Lord and He will guide us and help us in our daily decisions. I know he hears and answers our prayers and I know that the Spirit of God will teach us what we need to know. I follow the guidelines of the church so I can become like Christ. I know I or anyone else is not perfect but Jesus Christ did atone for our sins so we can repent and live with Him again. I know families are eternal and that the temple is the house of the Lord. I know we will see our family again and that those who may not be with us now are watching over us. I love the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father. I will put my trust in them and I will try to be like Jesus here on earth. The church means happiness to me and I know it will and has brought me peace in my life.

How I live my faith

I have had many callings in the church. I have served in the presidency of the Beehives, Mia Maids, and Laurels class in Young Women's. I have been a ward missionary who was able to pray and reach out and serve people who were in need of help.
