Hi I'm Jan

I grew up in Seattle, lived in Bend, Oregon for 35 years and now live in St George, Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for nearly 47 years and have two boys, both of whom have passed on. I love to quilt, sew, and I LOVE to do family history. I have been doing it for 40 years for myself and others. I owned my own tax preparation/accounting practice for over 20 years. I love to teach dogs basic skills and socialize them so they can be adopted into forever homes. We have socialized over 50 dogs.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in another faith in which we were invited to pray to God through Saints who were more loved and closer to God and I had never spoken directly to God. When I was 16 I learned how to pray and it was such a miracle to feel that special feeling that God not only heard me, but cared about me as an individual. I knew that whatever organization was capable of accessing God as He really is had to be the true church. Since then I have had so many prayers answered and feel the sweet peace that comes from doing the right thing. I read my scriptures every day and do all that I can to keep the peace beyond understanding that Jesus provides.

How I live my faith

I love to go to Church and learn. I have taught Sunday School and other groups. I also am often in charge of dinners or desserts for our local church group.
