Hi I'm Julianne

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am currently serving as a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Scottsdale, Arizona mission, while I am waiting for my Visa to go to the Brazil Belo Horizonte mission. I decided to serve a mission because over the past couple of years my testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ has increased more than it ever has throughout my life as a member of the church and I have found myself becoming more and more converted to the Lord. This has increased my desire to share what I know and to help others come to know it for themselves so that they may experience more peace, happiness, and understanding in their life as I have through being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In my other life, I enjoy being outdoors and doing anything that involves activity. I love swimming, running, biking, and just being outdoors in general. I also love teaching swim lessons, and would like to one day coach swimming. I am also considering a career in personal training and competing in triathlons, we shall see. The past few years I've attended school in Utah, where I am studying Exercise Science, and will continue my education once I return.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because as I've been taught the gospel throughout my life and have accepted to live how we are taught, I have come to know without a doubt that these things that my church teaches us are true, and that the LDS church is the true church of God. I know that God is our loving Heavenly Father, who knows us perfectly, and who's greatest desire is for us to return to live with him after our life here on Earth. I know He has a plan for each of us, and He knows what is best for us, and as we seek His guidance through prayer He will direct us along the right path. As we allow ourselves to come closer to Him by seeking His help and following His direction, we will see His influence in our lives and know without a doubt that He lives and truly knows and loves us. I have personally experienced this several times throughout my life, and I know that as I follow His gospel with all my heart that I receive more blessings of peace, happiness, comfort and assurance that keep me going in this world.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church meetings each Sunday, as well as other church gatherings and meetings throughout the week. These meetings with other members of my faith allow us to teach one another, strengthen one anothers testimonies, and serve each other when needed. It is by participating in my church that I have been guided to come to know those things I know to be true, have learned to become a better follower of Jesus Christ, and have felt more accepted and valued than in any other community organizations I've participated in.
