Hi I'm Julia

I work as a clinical lab tech. I have six daughters and 10 grandchildren I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've worked in clinical laboratories ever since I graduated from BYU in 1975, but my most important job was being a mother to six gorgeous girls. Besides work and family responsibilities, I loved sewing and made lots of clothes for my girls, including 5 of their wedding dresses. Now I make baby quilts for the 10 grandchildren that I have so far. I just recently had the trip of a lifetime when I went to Israel to visit one of my daughters and her family and then went on from there to Ukraine to visit my sister whose husband is the mission president.

Why I am a Mormon

My father comes from a Mormon pioneer family and my mother joined the church after she married him. My sisters and I were raised in the church and have actively participated in it all our lives. But I'm a Mormon because I love the answers I get to the important questions about why I'm here and where I'm going. I lost my husband almost five years ago and have been sustained by the faith that I will see him and my parents again. I am grateful for the understanding of the nature of the godhead and the plan of salvation that were revealed to Joseph Smith.

How I live my faith

I have taught Sunday school to the adults for two years. I love spending time studying the scriptures so that I can help my class have a deeper or broader understanding. I enjoy hearing some of them tell me that I gave them an insight that they didn't have before. I also lead a choir that sings at our twice yearly stake conferences and at Christmas. I get a chance to strengthen friendships and have opportunities for service as a visiting teacher.
