Hi I'm Janae

I grew up in California. I'm a wife and mother of 4. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife and mother of 4. I love to read, watch movies, and go to dinner with friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church. I can't imagine my life without it. It's a comfort and ultimate guide to the life I live. It brings me great joy.

How I live my faith

I currently serve as the Relief Society President (Our Women's Organization) of my ward (congregation). I absolutely love my calling. Working with the women and sharing in all their talents inspires me. In our home our faith is extremely important. We pray together, read scriptures together, work together. We aren't perfect but as a family we are always trying to improve and do better. In my daily life I live my faith by striving to be kind to others. We're taught to love one another as Jesus Christ did. I am a work in progress, but I try to be the best example I can to others as a representative of my faith.

Can you tell me about Mormon customs: how you dress for church, what holidays you celebrate, etc.?

For Sunday church the men & male youth wear dress pants with a white shirt & tie, suits. Women & female youth wear a modest dress or skirt (skirts & dresses to the knee, not low cut, no sleeveless). Children dress up too. We try to look neat, well-groomed, & clean. Our very modest best! In the USA we celebrate all the national and local holidays. We also celebrate birthdays & anniversaries.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Absolutely YES! I have no doubt. When I hear our Prophet, Thomas S. Monson speak I have an overwhelming feeling that what this man says is true, and that what he says comes from the Lord. Show more Show less
