Hi I'm Julie Sacks

I'm a wife and a mother of 3 boys. I love building things, being crafty and learning about photography. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I got married to the love of my life in 2004 and am a mother to 3 very sweet boys. I graduated from college in Behavioral Science and now stay at home to teach my boys how to love life and learning! I love being a Mom. I find it to be the most frustrating and rewarding thing I have ever done. It teaches me tons of patience and love. I also love doing photography. It is something new for me but I feel I am finding my nitch and am loving the creativity of it. I also love doing anything crafty. I always have some sort of "project" going on at my house. Life is great.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in this church and would not give it up for the world. This church has taught me the most important values from for my life, like being virtuous and honest with my fellow men and to having faith in my Savior. I'm a Mormon because it makes me happy. My life is better because of it. It teaches me the way of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and how I can return to him again someday. It teaches me the peace that comes from knowing that my family is not just an earthly thing, but eternal and that I will see those who have passed on again someday. And most importantly, it teaches me how to find joy in this life by following our prophet and reading the Book of Mormon, which is another testament of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by teaching the youth of our church. Every Sunday, I teach ages 13-14 year old girls about how to live the standards of the gospel. Like how to have strong faith, keep our bodies clean and pure, our purpose in life, and how to increase our faith in our Savior. I love working with the youth and it strengthens my testimony by working with them too. But more importantly, I teach the growing boys in my family. I try to be an example of complete love and devotion to my Savior and the promises I have have made to him, like being honest in all I do and treating others how Christ would treat people. I'm far from perfect, but I hope that my children can see that I am trying and that I know the Savior is there to help me in the areas that I struggle in.
