Hi I'm Julia

I'm a theatre geek, music lover, I'm 18, and I'm a Mormon! :)

About Me

I love reading, music, musicals, and all things nerdy (DOCTOR WHO IS THE BEST THING EVER!) I have an incredible summer job acting in a theatre troup for children, and I was a music student. People ask me if I would ever go on a mission, but I think that my talents for music and acting can be used to do missionary work and share the Gospel. Besides, someone has to stay home and write to the missionaries anyways!

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a Mormon my whole life-my parents' parents were members of the church, so that's how it started, but I've made the decision to still be a Mormon because I LOVE the Gospel, and I love all the people who I go to church with (especially the Sister Missionaries). I love all the opportunities I have to do service, because, hey! service gives me warm fuzzies! :D

How I live my faith

I make friends really easily and I love to tell people about what I believe, and invite them to come to activities with me! I was a music student at my local college, and by the time one month of the semester was over, everyone in my program and the theatre program knew that I was LDS, and I had had the opportunity to talk to about 20 people about the church!

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Julia
We live just like everyone else! We just have a couple of rules that are different than most of the rest of the world-for example, we strongly believe in dressing modestly, so I wear clothes that cover my shoulders and go as close to the knee as possible. We also believe in avoiding addicting substances, so *GASP* we don't drink coffee! But for real, we're just like you! We are people just like you, who have jobs in almost every industry in the world, from fashion, to television (JJ on Criminal Minds is LDS!!), to musical entertainment! (David Archuleta, Lindsey Stirling, The Piano Guys, Imagine Dragons, and the lead singer of the Neon Trees are just a few examples) We work in politics (everyone's heard of Mitt Romney), and we are in sports too (Jimmer Fredette plays in the NBA) Pretty much we're regular people with a slightly different take on Christianity than the rest of the world.
