Hi I'm Julie

I am a wife and mother. I love learning. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Creating makes me happy. In college I studied advertising and loved creating campaigns and communicating concepts artistically. Now that I stay home with my toddler, I enjoy creating by discovering new talents and making a happy home for my young family. I enjoy music and singing, sewing and crafts, and growing a garden. I love learning and trying out new hobbies and interests. I enjoy history and especially have a passion for learning about my forefathers. I feel I understand better who I am by learning more about their lives.

Why I am a Mormon

I am very happy being Mormon! While there is a lot of uncertainty and confusion in the world, I have found real peace through understanding and living the doctrines of my faith. I appreciate that the doctrines are constant and unchanging. The Book of Mormon, along with the Bible, helps me to understand with clarity who Jesus Christ is and how I can follow His example. I understand my relationship with God as His daughter and feel the future is bright. Being a Mormon is very liberating to me. The leaders of our church encourage learning by study and faith, and accountability. As I try to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ and the prophets both anciently and today, I realize I've gained my own conviction that the doctrines of the gospel of Jesus Christ are true and 100% applicable today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be kind to others and avoid passing judgment. I try to follow Jesus Christ's example of service by giving of myself to help others be happy. In our congregations there are many opportunities for service and involvement. In my local congregation, I play the piano for the women’s organization each Sunday. In the past, I've taught classes for teenagers and lead youth groups. I also visit several women in my congregation each month. Through these visits, I have made friends and have had the opportunity to care for these ladies’ spiritual, emotional and social needs.
