Hi I'm Julie

I'm from Panama and I'm Mormon ... I know it, I live it and I love it ♥: D

About Me

I'm a faithful daughter of God, Christ is my rock, my light, and my strength. I'm loving, honest, and kind. I'm powerful with God by my side. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, I absolutely love serving people, and making someone's day always a little brighter. I love sharing the gospel with others because the gospel is my hope, and happiness. I live everyday as it is my last day, and even though I'm not perfect I'm always striving to become the best version of myself. I love God, and I'm grateful for his love, and for believing in me even when I don't believe in myself. My family is everything to me, and I can't wait to some day have a family of my own. I am originally from Panama, but live in California now, and I'm a mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born knowing the gospel because my parents were members of the church, they served as missionaries for our church. Since a very young age I was taught of God and the plan he has prepared for us. I prayed and asked the Lord about everything I've learned in church, in the Book of Mormon and through church leader's counsels, and have received answers to my prayers. I have no doubt of the truthfulness of this gospel and how happy we will be if we strive to keep the commandments and live the way that allows us to be in harmony with God, His Son Jesus Christ and his spirit. I am a mormon because it makes me happy, and following God's commandments and gospel principles I learn at church makes me more than I could ever imagine I could be. I have had many trials and tribulations and I'll have many more, but I thank the Lord for that because it helps me be a better person every day. I am a child of God and he loves me and trusts me, so I hope to always keep progressing and giving him what he expects of me. I also hope I can continue to teach, and share the gospel with everyone I meet, as an act of gratefulness towards my savior Jesus Christ and the sacrifice he made for me because thanks to that amazing sacrifice I can repent and start over, I can also find strength when I'm weary, and I can always rely on him to do anything that is required of me. I know that Jesus Christ lives and that He is my Savior and my Redeemer, who loved me enough to die for me, and so he did for everyone else who lives upon this earth. Being part of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the greatest blessing that God has given me.

How I live my faith

Be an example to all the people around me, that's the way I live my faith and love that I have for my Heavenly Father and my neighbor, I can promise and assure that they will find greater happiness and peace in their lives elsewhere , there is no comparation to the joy I feel knowing that we have a father who loves us, who has a plan for us and cares for us and is always with open arms whenever you need it.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Julie
Everything tells me that there is a God, I'd say the main way I know there is a God is when I am able to experience one of his tender mercies. The other day I was a little sad, so I went to the chapel which is one of the main rooms at church and sat there by myself. I was praying, yet I was feeling very lonely, but I was still trying to be strong. Suddenly out of nowhere a brethren from my congregation appear, he looked at me and I smiled. Then he said, you look like you need a hug. I replied, no I think I'm good. He just came over a hugged me tight. I immediately knew he was sent by God because I really needed a hug even though I was telling myself I didn't. Enjoying of simple tender mercies like that testify to me very clearly that God is aware of our needs, and that he answers prayers. That he is God and he knows our thoughts and intentions because he created us. Show more Show less
