Hi I'm Janessa Alder

Born and raised in Utah. I love my family and friends. I am currently serving a mission in California. I am a Mormon.

About Me

Hello! My name is Janessa! I've grown up with "the Mormons" my whole life, and i wouldn't trade them for anything! I love my family so much! I am serving a mission in the Rancho Cucamonga Mission right now! And I love to laugh and have a good time!

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? Well why not? I have seen so many blessings in my life because of it. I know that this church is true. I did grow up in the church, but that doesn't mean that i didn't have to find out for myself whether or not it is true. I prayed to my Heavenly Father and i got my answer. I know that this is the true church. I cannot deny it. I challenge all of you to find out for yourself. It will bless your life in so many ways.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving the people in California. I love to talk to everyone i see even if it is a simple hi. I try my best to be an example and I strive to be more like my Savior Jesus Christ.

What is being a Mormon like?

Janessa Alder
To me, being a Mormon is the best choice anyone can make. I will not deny that in the world today that it is hard. Because it sure is. But it is worth it. And i can promise you that. Being a Mormon has helped me in my everyday life. Yes i still struggle in life, yes i still ask questions, and yes i am still learning. Being Mormon gives me purpose. It gives me happiness. It gives me everything i need. I know that Heavenly Father and his Son Jesus Christ are real. They are here with us each and everyday. through Jesus Christs atoning sacrifice we are able to repent. We can be forgiven. None of us are perfect and we would not be able to live with our Heavenly Father if it weren't for our Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ. It is a comfort throughout my daily life and it can be for you too. Show more Show less
