Hi I'm Julie

I live in Portland, Oregon. I am a mom, a wife, and a student. I write a blog. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being with my family. I just finished my bachelor degree and did the last half of it through independent study. It was a HUGE challenge. I enjoy watching my kids play sports. I love blogging and write about whatever's on my mind. I try to write something everyday. I am an avid crockpot user, so I can get on with my crazy life. But that "crazy life" is a very good life.

Why I am a Mormon

I really can't imagine not having The Church of Jesus Christ in my life. It strengthens me and builds me. It's definitely a way of life.

How I live my faith

I believe that "living my faith" isn't just words or a matter of belief. It's the daily actions I take. I try to make it so that everything I choose to do is in alignment with what Jesus Christ would have me do. It is because of my faith that I am able to raise a large family. When I work to draw closer to God through praying and studying His word, I know I am a stronger, more focused person. I try to make these things part of my everyday life. I can't afford to have a day without Him leading me. I need Him too much.
