Hi I'm Juliet

I'm kind of awesome, I'm entirely happy, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 22 year old lover of life. I am a recent college graduate and am enjoying what my father has been calling the "real world". I have two dreams in this life. The first is to have a family. The second is to have a career with the Church teaching teenagers. I like to eat, cook, date, love, laugh, and grow.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized at the age of 16. I was a senior in high school. As I learned about the church, I realized that it had everything I had been looking for my whole life. In the Church and through the Savior I have found my purpose. I know who I am and who I can become. I experience the love of church members on a daily basis. I feel safety and security as I keep the commandments and follow the counsel of church leaders. I have more joy in my family and more optimism for the future. Every day of my life the Lord shows that the Church is His as well as why i need to be a part of it.

How I live my faith

I've been blessed to serve in the Church in many ways. I have participated in the organization of activities, I have been a youth camp counselor, I have taught sunday school, I have assisted the missionaries in my area, and I have helped women in my ward in their efforts to look after and care for one another.

What is Mormonism? OR What do Mormons believe?

Juliet
Mormons believe that God is a real, perfect, and loving being who is genuinely concerned for our welfare. We believe that God wants us to be happy. In order to help us achieve this happiness, He has provided a Savior, Jesus Christ. Through Jesus Christ we can overcome all of our trials. We believe that Jesus Christ's church is on the earth and that he personally presides over it. He has called a prophet, Thomas S. Monson, to act as his mouthpiece as he leads his church. Jesus Christ has made the priesthood, or the authority to act in His name, available on the earth and it is through this power that we can receive ordinances and make covenants that will lead us on the path home to God.

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

Juliet
To be modest is to not attract undue attention to one's self. We must be modest in our words, actions, and appearance. As we strive to be modest, we begin to have a better understanding of who we are and who God is. We understand better that God loves us and has given us all an intrinsic value. One of the most amazing things Gos has blessed us with is our very own body. Gos expects us to love, respect, and care for our bodies. As we are modest in our appearance and cover our bodies appropriately, we show God and others that we understand that it is sacred. One aspect of having a body is being able to take part in physical intimacy- and act designed by God to take place between and only between married couples. Being modest shows that we intend to use our bodies in the way the Lord has instructed to. It also prevents us and others from becoming distracted with our bodies. We can teach our children that they are precious to God and never should have to feel that they need to dress or behave immodestly in order to get attention or approval. We should be frank with our children about the blessings our bodies bring into our lives. We need to teach them that we are modest because our bodies are sacred and because God is pleased when we show respect for their sanctity. Show more Show less
