Hi I'm Julie Weiss

I have been a Mormon all my life. It has blessed my life immensely.

About Me

Hi there, I'm a mother of three great kids ages15, 11 & 8. I love to write, read, sing, act and do genealogy. I am a preschool teacher. I love being teaching.

Why I am a Mormon

Yes, I grew up as a Mormon. Some may think that I'm just following the path my parents laid out for me, but it is so much more. There comes a time in your life where you have to decide what is right for you and seriously ponder what you've been taught and pray about it. I did just that and now I know with a surety that this is the Lord Jesus Christ's true church on the face of the earth. He is real, Heavenly Father is real. They love us unconditionally. I know that we have a true prophet that leads the church through the guidance of Jesus Christ. I have learned for myself that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, translated--not written--by the Prophet Joseph Smith. It is a companion to the Bible. They complement each other and help us understand them both.

How I live my faith

I try to be a good person, a good Christian in the way I treat people. I try to be a good neighbor. I want to follow the counsel of the Prophet because when I do, I feel happy inside because I feel the Spirit. I love to read the scriptures with my family. I love to teach my children how to pray--our Heavenly Father knows us and loves us unconditionally and wants to be there in our lives and help us on our life's journey.

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?

Julie Weiss
People are being lead by the Spirit to seek out the whole truth and when the Spirit touches you, you know that you need to follow it. Show more Show less
