Hi I'm Janelle

I'm a Colorado native and I love the Rocky Mountains. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. During my early life my family experienced periods of inactivity in the Church. In my twenties I had a desire to return to church activity and have been abundantly blessed ever since. I formed friendships in which I learned to garden, can food, and sew all of which I enjoy to this day. I also like to knit and crochet and hope to be able to learn how to tat one day. I have a wonderful husband, two sons, and three beautiful granddaughters.

Why I am a Mormon

While in my twenties, I took the opportunity to pray to know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Book of Mormon were true. Through my faith in Jesus Christ and through prayer I gained a testimony by the power of the Holy Ghost and know that they are indeed true. I love the fact that when we earnestly pray to our Heavenly Father for answers He hears and answers us. I love the fact that we have a living Prophet and Apostles on the earth today that guide us. I love that we have scriptures to learn of Jesus Christ and to help us in our daily lives. Knowing that I am a member of His Church striving to do what is right makes me happy and gives me hope.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be a little bit better each day than I was the day before. When going through life's daily struggles, that can be quite a task! Sharing the Gospel with friends and acquaintances is a constant reminder that I am a child of God and so are they. Going to Church each Sunday, partaking of the sacrament, and learning about Jesus Christ and His Gospel reinforces the principles that I need to incorporate into my daily life. Following the example of my Savior, Jesus Christ, by serving others helps me remember to be thankful for the many blessings I enjoy at His hands and to be glad I am able to serve another. Sometimes it's just a visit with a friend in need; sometimes it's just a little meal to an elderly neighbor.
