Hi I'm Julia Hess

I live for happiness, I sing to praise my God, and glory in serving Him. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the daughter of amazing parents and the second of 5 daughters. I'm obsessed with the color yellow, CLOUDS, and tigers. I love God's glorious creations. I love to sing, dance and act. I love anything to do with music, I believe it's one of the greatest gifts on this earth! I love children and cannot wait to be a mother someday! I am currently a college student studying Theater Education. I love serving others and helping them know that they are loved because they are a child of God. I have been an EFY counselor for the church and have a huge respect and love for the youth in this glorious church! My motto in life is to simple, LIVE LAUGH AND LOVE.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that Heavenly Father lives. I know His Son Jesus Christ came to earth and not only died for us, but he Atoned for our sins. He is my very best friend. I would not be the person that I am today if I didn't have the gospel in my life. Everything in life is better with the gospel. I know my family is eternal, someday when I get married it won't be 'til death do you part' but it will be for Time and all Eternity. It is impossible to go through life without struggles and trials but having my Father in Heaven and Savior Jesus Christ there makes everything better. I know that God's plan for me is better than any plan I could have for myself, He has witnessed this truth to me countless times. I know the Book of Mormon is another testament of Christ and that it is TRUE. Every page testifies of the reality of Jesus Christ. I know that we have a living prophet and apostles on the earth today. Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet of God. The words they speak and the guidance they give is from God. This church is true, I know it and I CANNOT deny it. I never will. The gospel = happiness. If you are missing something in your life, or long for happiness you've never experienced I testify the gospel of Jesus Christ is what you need. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints is true. I love it, and I love my Savior and Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I live my faith my following the commandments and not justifying my actions to follow the trends of the world. I strive each day to make my Father in Heaven proud. I want to live with Him again and I know I need to do my part for that to happen. I go to church weekly, read my scriptures daily, and I pray to my Heavenly Father many times throughout the day. I teach the youth of the church and I absolutely love it. The truthfulness of the gospel makes me so happy, I HAVE to share it with others! I know I'm obligated to share this happiness with the world, and I strive to make my everyday actions a testament to what I know to be true.
