Hi I'm Janelle

I'm a music-lover, a graffiti artist, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the middle kid of seven children. I was born to life-long member mother and a convert father. I studied German for five years, and on top of that, I have been called to serve in the Alpine German-Speaking mission. When I return from my mission I will be a student at Utah State University, learning everything I can. I am a proud member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or in short, I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

One reason that I'm a Mormon is that I was born in and raised in the Church. It's all that I've known my entire life, but I've also sought out to know the truthfulness of this restored gospel for myself. I relied on the testimony of my parents for a while, but I have found out for myself that it is true through personal prayer and study of the Book of Mormon. I continue in this Church because I love it. I love the way I feel everyday knowing that I'm a member of Christ's restored church, and I love the knowledge I've gained through the gospel, like knowledge of eternal life and the plan of salvation.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving my mission and sharing this wonderful gospel with the people here in Southern Germany and Austria. I love them and I love serving and teaching them.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Janelle
In one word, no. We as Latter-day Saints do not worship the Prophet Joseph Smith. We recognize and respect him as prophet of God though, and one that helped restore the gospel to the earth. We worship only God our Eternal Father and our Savior Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
