Hi I'm Julianne

I'm a college student and loving it! I am a Mormon!

About Me

My name is Julianne. I grew up in southern Nevada where I was raised as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Being a member of this church has been the greatest blessing in my life. I also love to run and do outdoor activities or anything that involves a good laugh. I am currently a college student finishing my final year and preparing for graduate school. I am also currently preparing to serve a full-time mission in Washington. I couldn't be more excited and am so ready to get out there and share with others what brings so much joy to my life!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because God lives and He wants the very best for each and every one of His children. He would never try to confuse us in any way and will always guide us in the right direction if we are willing to listen. There is also no other thing in this world that has ever given me the peace and comfort that this church has. I could not imagine my life without it. I know that the Book of Mormon is so true! If you ever want to know for yourself, I would encourage you to read it and pray. God answers prayers... all prayers. What you have to remember though is that He answers them in His time and in His ways. But, He will let you know the truth and He will never leave you alone. Life is hard and I believe it is going to continue to get harder. But with God by my side always, I know it will always be possible. We weren't put on this earth to fail, but to progress and learn. Our Heavenly Father knows us better than we know ourselves and through Him we can do hard things!

How I live my faith

The faith that I have in my Father in Heaven and His son Jesus Christ is very important to me. It is the very thing that keeps me going every day. I love attending church each Sunday and I am so thankful for all the opportunities that I have had to serve in various callings assisting the other members of the church as well as others in the community which I live. I believe that the greatest way I can show my Heavenly Father that I love Him is through obedience. I try to be the best I can be although I am quite far from perfect.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a Mormon is the absolute best (it brings me probably most of the joy in my life)! It has shaped my life for the better in ways that it could not without the church. I have also learned the following from being a member: -It has helped me grow so much closer to God and understand why I am here on this earth -Being a member has taught me so much spiritually and physically. I have been on both of the serving and the receiving end of service and honestly there is no better feeling to have than the feeling you get after serving someone or knowing someone cares about you -It has given me life long friends that are true friends and wonderful people that bring out the best in me -It has given me the peace that I will be with my family forever and I will see my friends again (what greater blessing can their possibly be) -Basically in a nutshell, it has made me so happy Show more Show less
