Hi I'm Juliana

I'm from California, a student at BYU Idaho. I'm a health/fitness guru. I sing and play guitar. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student currently attending BYU Idaho. I am majoring in Exercise Physiology, minoring in Nutrition, and the dream is to become a personal trainer. I love being active and working out, eating clean is a passion. I grew up in music oriented home so I enjoy singing and I play the guitar. I'm just enjoying the college life right now, meeting new people and learning so much. Loving life.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up, I have had a lot of opportunities to think about why I am Mormon. I was born into a Mormon family and raised as such, so for a long time that was all I knew. I didn't question it. In high school, I was often asked why I was a Mormon, or how I did it, since many consider it to be "strict" or have "too many rules". I had never really thought about why I was, I just was. So for a long time I asked myself the same question, so that I could know for myself why I chose this religion. Not just because it was how I was raised. And this is why: Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is who I am, not just a lifestyle. It helps me know who I am, where I came from, and where I am going. Knowing my purpose on this earth and knowing where I want to end up helps me work towards being the best person I can be in this life. Also, the rules I live by just make sense. Refraining from alcohol, drugs, and other addicting substances helps me keep my body and mind healthy. I'm so grateful for other standards I live by that keep me safe and help me do the right things. I can honestly say that this church is what has brought me the most happiness in my life. It has blessed me in so many ways I can't even begin to describe. It has brought me closer with my family, and gives me hope and a purpose in life. I am proud to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by my daily actions. I do what I can to serve others around me, and I try everyday to keep Christ at the center of my life. To me, I think the most important thing is to live by what you preach. I have grown up being taught in the gospel and I need to be an example of what I believe. I try to look at everyone I meet as a son or daughter of God, and treat them as such. I attend church every Sunday, and I come ready to learn from others' testimonies and also teach with my own.
