Hi I'm Janae Burgess

I'm an adventurer, a future humanitarian, and a future missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student with interests in working in the International Development field. I love to climb things, whether it be a rock wall or a 300 m train bridge, go solo camping, and adventure. I love music, food, sports, and getting to know people. I have a fascination with people- their culture, how they work, how they think, and how they grow. I moved away from home right after high school and have been trying to find my way in good ol' Alberta. I have been called to serve a mission in the Italy, Milan Mission leaving in July, and so I am trying to prepare myself for that incredible opportunity that I've been given.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I have felt and seen the difference that living by the teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ, taught in the church, has brought. As I have tried to live the Gospel, and do my best, I have seen the blessings and aid that have been brought in to my life, especially in the times where I am struggling the most. This is a gospel built on a foundation of love, and because of it I have come to understand better my worth, my purpose, and my potential. I have felt comfort knowing that God loves me, and that his son, Jesus Christ, died for me so that I will never be alone, and that even though I make mistakes, I can always try again, and again. There is no greater happiness than that which comes through living the gospel of Jesus Christ, and that gospel is found in it's purest form in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by looking for opportunities to serve and love those around me. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is a church based on a gospel of love, and I have learned that nothing brings greater joy than acts of service.
