Hi I'm Janessa Lewis

I grew up in Springville, Utah. I am currently a student at BYU. I am an artist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student at Brigham Young University. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am an artist and I enjoy painting landscapes because it constantly reminds me of how incredible this earth is. I love being outside whether I am hiking, camping or longboarding that is when I feel most happy. I hope one day to travel to many different places around the world to learn about the different people that live there.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. church and most of my family members are also members

How I live my faith

Recently, in my community I have been part of a ward or group that is all young single adults. This was a fun experience to participate in because I got to meet and become friends with many people my age who believed the same core principles as me but who came from different backgrounds then me. I am currently preparing to serve an LDS Mission, where I have been called to teach and serve people in Australia. Most of the experience in my faith has been centered around serving and loving those I am surrounded by. I have really appreciated this opportunity because it has taught me how Jesus Christ's loves everyone, even if they are different from me.
