Hi I'm Juli
I am a TESOL major who loves music and writing. I'm learning Japanese and attend BYU Hawaii. I'm a Mormon.
I love to bake and spend time talking and laughing with my family. I draw and write and like to spend quiet time reading. I have been in Marching band all four years of high school and I have made it to being head drum major for my last year. I play the trumpet and the piano and recently took up the French horn in concert band. My favorite music to listen to is movie soundtracks. I plan to study linguistics in college and spend time in Japan to study Japanese.
Why I am a Mormon
Through the many trials I have already been faced with, I have found that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has given me a greater sense of peace and joy through sorrow and turmoil. Although I was born into the church I have found that through righteous gospel living I can gain greater happiness as I progress through life. Many of my great friends are in the church and I am so grateful to them for being an example to me and giving me people to go to when I feel uncomfortable in the world. I have chosen to be a member of this church because I have seen evidence in my own life that as I follow the teachings of the Gospel, I am happier, more confident, and feel that I have a place not only in the world now, but in eternity.
How I live my faith
Journaling and scripture study are two important parts of how I live my faith. By keeping a record of the things I have learned through my experiences and scripture reading I can better understand and reflect upon events in the past to decide how I will act in the future. I love actively participating in seminary to learn what the Lord would have me learn here and now. I am friendly and always giving thanks to those give service to me.
