Hi I'm Kirk and Janis Thurman

We were both born in Star Valley, Wyoming, were high school sweethearts, lived in Idaho while raising our family, & we are Mormon.

About Me

Kirk worked as an electrician and Janis as a teacher's aid while they raised their family of 2 daughters and 2 sons. Kirk is an avid sailor, and also enjoyed many years of packing and hunting trips on the horses with his family. Janis is a talented artist and makes their home a welcoming place for all. We have both participated in serving their community, friends, and neighbors. We love our grandchildren and love investing time in loving, teaching, and supporting them.

Why I am a Mormon

We were Mormon, at first, because it was the faith we were first raised in. Then there came a time we both had to make a decision and know for ourselves. We both felt that the priesthood authority and ordinances Christ himself spoke of were in this church that Christ himself restored to the earth.

How I live my faith

We live our faith by first and foremost teaching our family and serving them. We also love to serve in the youth and adult programs of the church. Kirk has spent many years working in the scouting program, and Janis in working with the womens and youth programs.
