Hi I'm Julia

I grew up in Utah. I am a missionary. I love people. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Before coming on my mission I was going to school to become a math teacher, and will continue my schooling when I am finished. I am the sixth of eight kids and I love to have fun with my siblings and parents! I love to tell stories and to make people laugh. My personality could probably best be described by imagining a combination of Jane (from Tarzan) and Giselle (from Enchanted).

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! It brings so much peace to my life to know that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, and by being obedient to His commandments, I can one day again live with my Father in Heaven and also with my Savior Jesus Christ. I love not having to live with the weight of past sins. I love knowing that I can live with my family forever, because of the blessings of the Temple. Because of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, I am happy! Even when things seem to not be going well, I can still be happy and know that everything will be all right. I was born into the church, my ancestors coming across the plains with the Mormon Pioneers---but I have gained a testimony of the truth of the gospel for myself! The gospel has given me such comfort throughout my entire life, starting from when I was small and my prayers were as simple as begging Heavenly Father to help me not to be afraid of the dark, to now when I pray, asking for blessings I need, and comfort I desire. I have a testimony that prayer really is powerful! I know that Heavenly Father really loves each of us, His children. I know that just like any good parent, He desires to bless and help us, and is there waiting for us to ask for His help. I know that as we do so, and ask in faith, believing that we will receive, if it is something that He knows will be good for us then He happily blesses us with it! I love our Heavenly Father, and I love our Savior Jesus Christ. I would be nowhere without the blessings of the gospel, which come because of what Jesus Christ did for us!!

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary, and am loving it! I love being able to talk to people and share my beliefs with them. I spend a significant amount of my time working at church historic sites, teaching people about the events that have taken place at these sites, and how these events bring blessings to their lives. I love being able to talk to new people and being able to share my testimony with them.
