Hi I'm Jane Wittwer

I'm from Bountiful, Utah. I'm serving as a missionary in Birmingham, Alabama, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am currently serving as a missionary in Birmingham, Alabama. I attended school at Southern Utah University, and hope to go into Physical Therapy. I worked as a Lifeguard, Swim Teacher, and Ski Instructor before my mission. I love to draw, paint, play the piano, read, hike, camp, kayak, and ski. And hang out with my super cute family... because they're the best! We love watching movies together or being outside playing or just hanging out and talking. Cool fact: I've never had a cavity!

Why I am a Mormon

It makes me happy! Because of faith and the Lord's love for me, I am able to have a testimony of God's plan for each of us - that there is a purpose for me and all those around me, and that if I will follow that plan and strive to follow the example of Christ I will find true joy in this life AND eternal happiness in the life to come. No fear! Only hope. What could be better than that?

How I live my faith

Right now I'm living my faith through my decision to serve my Heavenly Father by going on a mission. I am able to be out sharing the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. We bear testimony of our beliefs to many who have either never heard of us or know very little. It's an incredible opportunity to teach others about God's love for them. Dedicating this time of my life to Him has blessed me with a more sure knowledge of God's presence in my life and the love of my Savior. Each day is filled with prayer and following the promptings of the Holy Ghost. We rely so wholly on that guidance, and I wouldn't trade anything for that gift.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Jane Wittwer
Most simply by reading the Book of Mormon. There is no truer book known to us than this volume of holy scripture. I love the Bible with all my heart, but there is a special spirit when reading the Book of Mormon. Just try reading it! Can't hurt, right? I have had so many experiences of my prayers being answered while studying the Book of Mormon. I have been able to cultivate a more personal relationship with my Savior through reading the Book of Mormon and praying over it's message. I love it! Show more Show less
