Hi I'm Julie Christiansen

I am currently serving as a Missionary in the Greatest Ohio Cincinnati Mission! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am currently serving a mission for the Lord. I have the awesome privilege of working under President Porter in the Cincinnati Ohio Mission. I have learned that the people we are around absolutely can change our lives. I am so excited for my opportunity to help others come unto Christ. I am a college student majoring in Exercise Science. I love to watch sports, and game stats are very interesting to me. I live on a farm, where I have the opportunity to move sprinkler pipe and pull noxious weeds, as well as run errands. I like to be with those that I love such as my family and friends. I like to be outside. I love to read. I like to learn new things, of all sorts.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in a family that are members of the Church. When I was younger I leaned on the testimonies of those around me, but as I have grown I have come to have a testimony for myself. I know that we have a Heavenly Father who knows and loves each of us personally. We have an Elder Brother, Jesus Christ, who came to Earth and suffered pains and afflictions for each of us, so if we live worthily we will be able to return and live with Him and our Father. The Prophet Joseph Smith restored the Gospel of Jesus Christ to this Earth. Throughout his life he suffered many trials so the Gospel could come forth. He is a true Prophet of God. President Thomas S. Monson is a true and living Prophet on this Earth, and He receives Revelation for our day. As we follow what He says we will lead happier and better lives. This Gospel is for everyone it truly leads our lives to greater light and happiness. It is centered on the Family and as we live the principles that are taught we will come to better know Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and our Heavenly Father. In listening to the Holy Ghost we will be better prepared to serve those around us and I know that he will guide us to those who need our strength the most. I truly love this Gospel and the opportunities that it has given me throughout my life. I do not know where I would be without it. I know that everything I have said is true and as you read the Book of Mormon and go to Church you will come to the same knowledge as me.

How I live my faith

Throughout my life I have been involved in various church callings. As a youth I was in class presidencies and had the opportunity to work with other members of my class and our leaders in planning out activities for each month. As I have grown and moved to a Singles Ward I have had the opportunity to be involved on the Linger-Longer Committee, in planning out meals every other month for one Sunday. I have also had the opportunity to be involved in Visiting Teaching, where I have come to know other girls in the ward better.
