I have an announcement.

Dear Blogworld and those of you who are not apart of the blogworld but creep my blog anyway,

I think it's time ya'll know.
We are often known as "Mormons"
but that does not define everything we are.

I want to write a bit on what I believe know.
God knows me.
He knows what makes me sad.
He knows why I cry.
He knows my fears.
He knows how I feel. 
Every minute of every day.
He knows what brings me complete happiness.
He wants to help me to keep that happiness

"For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved."
John 3:16-17

I know that I make mistakes.
I am far from perfect.
I think the wrong thing.
I say the wrong thing.
I do the wrong thing.
I am who I am.
But I know
that there is a way to become clean again.
I know
Christ suffered all I have suffered for my sins so I am able to have eternal life.
I know
that by staying close to God, and keeping His commandments
He will help me remain on the right path.
He will help me make decisions.
He will comfort me when I am sad.
He will calm my troubled heart.
He will bless me.
and He will forgive me.
People can judge my mistakes.
They can judge my actions.
They can judge me for things I say or things I do.
Things I might have said in the past. Or done in the past.
But that doesn't matter 
because I know
if I keep the commandments,
I will be able to return to my Father in Heaven again.
I will be able to thank His son for all that he suffered for me.
I will be able to experience joy beyond mortal comprension.
I will be able to be with my family
I will be able to be with the love of my life
—whomever he may be—

I also know that YOU can have this happiness and knowledge too.
By simply asking in faith
you will receive the same knowledge.
I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.


  1. Beautiful testimony Jane. I thought of this when I read it hope you don't mind me adding my little testimony by sharing this quote.
    "I express gratitude that 'in my Gethsemane' and yours, we are not alone. He that watches over us 'shall neither slumber nor sleep.' His angels here and beyond the veil are 'round about [us], to bear [us] up.'" -Robert D. Hales.

  2. I love this Janeen. Thank you so much for sharing your testimony with the blogging world— it's beautiful.

  3. Thanks Jane,

    this has just reminded me that I need to pray more often before I go to bed tonight.. and every night.. because no matter how much we pull away from God his love and mercy keep us bound to him no matter what.
