Hi I'm Julie Leavitt

I grew up in a small town in Montana. I love to travel and be with people. I'm a Mormon (Latter-Day Saint).

About Me

I am currently attending college and majoring in Elementary Education. I love to dance, be outside, be active, be with friends and family, laugh, and listen/play music. By far however, my favorite extra-curricular activity is tutoring kids in our city.

Why I am a Mormon

Why I am a Mormon? Simply put, my life would be so empty if I didn't have the gospel. It brings me such joy and hope that I know I can't find anywhere else. I know that my Heavenly Father and Savior love me and want me to return to live with them forever (as they do with all people). I know that that is the whole reason that Christ suffered for me. Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God. He truly saw God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. Through the power of God, he restored the true church back on the earth and translated the Book of Mormon. That book has power to change lives. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet today. He truly is God's mouthpiece on the earth today. Why am I a Mormon? I could not live without this knowledge.

How I live my faith

The main way in which I live my faith is to do my best to be the kind of person my Savior wants me to be. This doesn't just mean be good on Sundays, but I try to do what he would want me to do everyday. While that is the main way in which I live my faith, here are some more: -Attend the Temple -Love and be with my family -Study the scriptures -Pray -Attend Church -Participate in Institute (Institute is amazing! If you've never been, try it! It's so worth it!) -Be a friend :)
