Hi I'm Janelle Andrus

I was born and raised in Washington. I love music. I love adventures. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student majoring in Spanish education and minoring in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). I love going to school, learning new things everyday, and hanging out with my amazing friends as much as possible. I enjoy things like backpacking, bike riding, painting and scrap booking.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that it is Christ's true and restored church on the earth today. I know that by living according to my faith I bring joy and peace into my life, and help bring that joy and peace to those around me. Being a Mormon and following Christ is not always easy. We are taught in 2 Timothy 3:12 that all who follow Christ will suffer persecution. But the blessings ultimately outweigh the difficulty. Our Heavenly Father is pleased when we follow Christ and in so doing, live in a way that will allow us to return to live with Him again. When we live in such a way, we are also helping those around us to follow Christ and return to live with our Heavenly Father. It is with Him that we can all enjoy never-ending peace and happiness.

How I live my faith

My faith is not just something I live on Sundays, but rather something that is part of my everyday life. I am always trying to live the way Christ lead his life by following his example and becoming more like him. I live my faith by sharing my faith. Each Thursday evening I participate in ministering visits, where me and other members of my young single adult ward go out and visit members of the ward who are struggling and may need some love and support from others. I am also preparing to serve as a full time missionary in South America where I will share my faith in, and testimony of Jesus Christ and work to help others come unto Christ and find the joy that comes through following Him.
