Hi I'm Julee

I grew up in Arizona. I'm married to the love of my life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was married to an amazing man in the Manti Temple in July 2010. We have one baby girl and we love her so much! Currently I am staying at home with the little one while my husband works in the oil fields and goes to school. My life isn't perfect by any means. I have the same worries as everyone else, but having my Savior as my example of strength and courage, it gives me the perseverance to know I can do hard things and that I need to be happy in the midst of everything this life brings with it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and was baptized as a member on my 8th birthday. Since I grew up in the church, many might say that this is why I am a Mormon today, and although this foundation in the church did greatly influence this choice I knew that I always had the agency to choose a different way. Throughout my life I have watched the world around me ask questions that I, through modern day prophets and apostles, had answers to! I always knew where I came from, what my purpose was here on this earth, and where I was going after I die. People spend millions of dollars trying to figure out the meaning to life and I get that knowledge for free. By living the Mormon standards I have been freed from so much pain and anguish that comes from certain actions. For example, I have never drank a drop of alcohol. I feel that this choice has freed me from ever becoming an alcoholic. Who knows if I could have become addicted to drinking? Because I have chosen never to do so, I am freed from the worry of ever having this burden brought upon myself. I'm not saying that this makes me better then anyone, it's just one of the reasons I choose to be a Mormon. I love this Church. It gives me hope in troubled times and peace in chaos. My home is blessed because of it's teachings. We love of our Savior, Jesus Christ. I know that this church is true and that is why I am a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I think that the most important part of living my faith is being obedient to what Heavenly Father asks of us as Latter Day Saints and of me as his daughter. Elder Bednar said to be converted to the Lord is "to be consistently true to what we know." I think it's so important to remember that faith is a verb which means we need to take action! I keep this in mind as I do my best to live my faith.
