Hi I'm Julie

I am a wife, mother, feminist, graduate student, I speak Chinese, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! 你好! I have red hair and I am the youngest of nine kids. I grew up in a small town in Washington state where I learned to enjoy animals, writing, family and green gardens! I am currently a wife and mother with a beautiful, angel baby boy. I am just finishing my graduate degree in Asian Studies and I speak mandarin Chinese. I have lived in Taiwan and studied in China. My topic of study is the sex ratio imbalance in China. I also enjoy researching U.S. and international politics and women's studies. I love Chinese food, pets, board games, spending time with my amazing husband, reading and studying, and hanging out with friends!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I gained a witness from God that the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God. I read and pondered the Book of Mormon and then knelt down and sincerely asked God if it was true. I received an answer that I can never deny. I am a Mormon because we believe in the importance and power of women. We believe men and women are equal in the sight of God and before each other and that as a man and woman, we can be sealed forever. I am a Mormon because I know Christ atoned for my sins and I can be forgiven for all of the mistakes I have made in my life. He is my Savior and I know that He lives.

How I live my faith

I love missionary work. I love to invite others to come, see and feel the love of Jesus Christ. I am a ward (congregation) missionary and I visit with my neighbors, befriend them, invite them to Church and serve them in any way I can.
