Hi I'm Jane Smiley

I am thrilled to be serving an LDS mission in Indiana, Indianapolis. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I study Recreation Management at BYU. I love playing sports and spending time outside such as camping, hiking, and running. I also love practicing yoga and find that it brings me inner peace. I am a doodler, a free-time painter, and a ceramics hopeful. My favorite drink is mango smoothies and I love my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings me happiness. I have decided for myself that I enjoy being happy, and I want to continue my life in happiness. Whether that is small donuts on Saturday mornings or the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I try to serve others outside of my church callings. I helped with Bingo at a rehabilitation and nursing center and sang there once a week with some of my friends to hopefully brighten some lives. I teach little kids in church about how much they are loved, and in my last church calling I helped organize weekly activities for college students to be able to spend time with people of their same faith.
