Hi I'm Julia

I'm a college student. I love to run and play the piano. I'm a wife and future mother.

About Me

I've played the piano since I was young, and it is my favorite thing to do when I have time to myself. I enjoy running, hiking, and other outdoors activities. I've run 3 marathons now, and I'm planning on running the Boston Marathon next year. I will graduate this August with a degree in Mathematics. A couple months later, my husband and I are expecting a baby! I am so excited to be a mom and to continue learning and growing.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church, and from a young age, I could see that when I obeyed my parents and chose to do the right thing that I was more happy. Over the years I have come to learn for myself that the teachings of the gospel are true. I continue to try to follow these teachings because I know they are right, and they bring joy to my life. I know that we have a Heavenly Father who loves each of us with an infinite love, and I know that He has a plan so that we can be with our families forever. I am so grateful for the guidance and influence I have received through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to lift up myself and those around me. I pray and read my scriptures daily in order to feel guided and grow closer to the Savior. I try to show other people my love through small, everyday acts of kindness and caring. Also, I am involved in the Visiting Teaching program, so I get to visit with some women in my ward each month. I really enjoy these friendships.
