Hi I'm Julie

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife, mother, grandmother , writer, actress, teacher. I currently work as an instructor of Adult Education helping people study for their GED exam. I have as degree in history and I am working towards MA in English/Writing. I love story telling whether it is in the written word, through music or theatrical productions. I have played many roles, but my favorite and by far the most fulfilling have been as a wife , mother and now grandmother. My husband and I have been married for 32 years, and we have three grown children. Our grandchildren (little boys) are our great joy.

Why I am a Mormon

While I suppose my membership in the church is a result of my heritage, my conversion to the gospel of Jesus Christ came from learning about and then trying to live by the teachings of Jesus Christ. I was taught early in my life that I was a daughter of a loving Heavenly Father who loves me. I was taught that my prayers were heard and answered, and I was taught that by studying the scriptures, I could grow closer to my Heavenly Father. I have had many experiences where I have tested the foundational beliefs of my youth and found them to be true. I am a Mormon because the doctrines of the church have taught me who I am and my purpose in life. More than that, I am a Mormon because this church is where I learned about Jesus and my relationship to him. He is my Savior, Redeemer and friend. This knowledge has brought faith, peace, comfort and perspective as I have gone through the trails and tumults so common in life. I am so grateful for it.

How I live my faith

While striving to live as a disciple of Jesus Christ is not always easy, it is simple. I think Jesus said it best when He said that the two great commandants were to love God with all our hearts and minds, and to love our neighbor as ourselves. I strive to do this.
