Hi I'm Janelle terHorst

I grew up loving every bit of the Gospel. I love to sing and play the piano and flute and I am a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Janelle and I am going to Berlin Germany for my mission. I am super excited to go spread the Gospel and share the things that I love. I also love sports and music. I play soccer, volleyball, ultimate Frisbee and piano and flute. I love to read, and some books I love are the Book of Mormon, Tennis Shoes Among the Nephites series, and the Harry Potter series. I went to BYU-Idaho for a year and I am studying Elementary Education. I grew up in the Gospel and I do not know what or where I would be if I didn't have the Gospel in my life. I went to an Especially For Youth event one year and the testimony meeting was where my testimony of this Gospel grew. I was really nervous to share my testimony and so I prayed and asked for guidance and right there I felt calm and was able to share my testimony. I am forever grateful for that event and I am prepared to share my growing testimony to the people of Berlin.

Why I am a Mormon

I know this Gospel is true. I have a deep love for it and never had a doubt that anything was false. Every time I start speaking about the Gospel I can't help but smile to those who I am sharing it with.

How I live my faith

Since coming home from BYU-Idaho, I have gone out with the sister missionaries in the area at least once a week. I have shared my testimony of the Gospel with the investigators the sisters have. I also share my talents to friends and family and sometimes that is through playing the flute or piano, being nice and friendly and just being me.
