Hi I'm Julayne

I'm a daughter, sister, college student, and current missionary. I love music, sports, and children. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I recently finished my sophomore year of college. I am studying Elementary Education, and absolutely love it! I love hanging out with roommates, having movie nights, playing sports, art, and finding time to play piano and the viola. I love anything outdoors, especially when it's with my family! I am the oldest of 8 children; my siblings are my best friends, and we know how to have a good time! I am currently a missionary serving in the Korea Daejeon Mission, and am so grateful for this opportunity to tell others about Jesus Christ and the joy they can find by following Him.

Why I am a Mormon

I didn't use to know exactly why I was a member of this church. I was born into the church, and grew up always going to church and reading the scriptures. It came to a point where I wanted to know for myself if it really was true. It was a gradual process, and over time as I prayed and studied the scriptures I came to know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the fullness of Jesus Christ's gospel restored in our day. I know that Jesus Christ lives, and is our Savior. I know that I am a child of God, and so are you! Heavenly Father loves all of His children. I know that because of our Savior, we are able to live with God and our families again after this life. I know that God speaks now to a living prophet, just as He did in the Bible. We can truly find happiness in this life now as well as in the life to come by living the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I love going to church each week, and always feel so uplifted and motivated to be a better person. I recently had a leadership calling in the women's organization at church, and really enjoyed getting to know so many people and serving them. Before leaving on my mission I also had the opportunity to teach some classes for children at church, and was always so amazed at their strong faith and spirit, especially when they sang. They made me want to be more like Jesus Christ. By studying the scriptures, keeping His commandments, and serving others, I am trying to follow Him.
