Hi I'm Julio

I play soccer, football, video games, go to school and do homework, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up playing sports like many other kids around the world, in high school i was on the football and soccer team, but i have also played basketball, lacrosse, ran track and wrestled. In my spare time i would hangout with friends, spend time with family, workout at the gym and play video games, just like many other teenagers. After my two year mission i plan on returning to school and majoring in Business Management and economics, but only time will tell where i will end up and what i will end up doing.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, so i was raised mormon, but i am an independent 19 year old now and still choose to be a Mormon. Being Mormon is more then going to church on Sunday, it helps me live a clean virtous life, and it helps me know that there is a purpose to life. It has helped me to understand that we all came from somewhere, that we are here for a reason, and we are going somewhere after this life. It has answered many of the questions which so many of us ask daily, and this has brought peace and happiness into my life. I love the standards and values which we are taught, living by these principles has brought me many blessings and it makes me want to share with all others what the gospel has done to my life. I know that this church is true, i have searched for the truth in scriptures and through prayer, and i have come to know for myself of the truthfullness of this gospel. I know my Heavenly Father loves me and everyone of his children and i am so blessed to know that through prayer i can communicate with him daily.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church on sundays, yet also by living the gospel principles on a daily basis. I know i am not perfect and i fall short of that everyday, but i try and live as my heavenly father would want me to live. When there is an opportunity to help others in some kind of service i try and involve myself, i find that by making others happy, you are also bringing joy into your life. I will be serving a two year LDS mission to Spain, two years of trying to bring people unto Christ, only so they can experience the blessings which i have felt in my life.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Julio
Just like it says in the cover, it is another testament of Jesus Christ, like the bible, the Book of Mormon is also the word of God. It contains the records and stories of the ancient inhabitants of the americas. Prophets were called among these people, who also preached of the coming of Jesus Christ, and so it contains the before, the during, and the after of Jesus Christs coming here to the americas. It is the same gospel given to those in Jerusalem, but with the Book of Mormon and the Bible, we have the fulness of the Gospel. Show more Show less
