Hi I'm Janelle

I'm the mother of twins who also likes to Cowgirl when she can. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town (350 ish) and fell in love with the outdoors. I've been riding horses ever since I can remember and still feel that there's no better place to be. I'm now married with twins. Both the marriage and the twins are challenging sometimes but they will always be more than worth the effort. I wouldn't trade any member of my family for anything. My husband and I recenlty moved back to my hometown where he works on a cattle ranch. It's perfect for us. The kids and I get to ride along and take part in all the fun. I love being a stay at home mom who still gets to do the things she loves.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a member family and can't remember much about the time surrounding my baptism but I am grateful everyday for the gospel in my life. My husband and I were sealed in the temple and our family is eternal. When I look at my husband and children I can't imagine a life after death that didn't involve them. The gospel influences my life everyday. There are days that I wouldn't be able to get through the day without the promptings of the spirit. Its have been particularly helpful as I try to raise my children and as I go through trials such dealing with my daughter's cleft lip and palate. It's amazing to have the knowledge that I have a Heavenly Father who knows and loves me and knows what I'm going through. I never have to doubt that I can trust him to help me know the best thing to do for myself and my family. To me, being a Mormon isn't about keeping a bunch of strict rules, it's about knowing how to live my life in a way that will let my Heavenly Father bless me and help me make the most of my life.

How I live my faith

My husband and I teach the five-yr-old children's class each Sunday while trying to juggle the kids. I also participate in the church's visiting teaching program and visit to of the women in my ward every month. It's a great opportunity to build friendships and to learn from each other while helping make sure everyone in the ward is taken care of.
