Hi I'm Julia

I'm from Germany. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love dancing and running, but also music and reading books. I like learning about people and foreign and ancient cultures and languages. Right now, I serve as a missionary at Salt Lake City Temple Square what I consider as a wonderful opportunity for that. The reason why I decided to come on a mission is because I want to share my experiences with God and help others make a difference in their life through a relationship with him. It was a great surprise for me, when I found out that I combine that in my mission with many of my interests!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and was always active. But when I was about 14 years old, I started to think on my own about what I had heard for my entire life. I had many challenges of different kinds in this time but the Gospel helped me to deal with them. It also changed me and my life and I am very grateful for that. After some time, I had the desire deep inside to know if the church was true and if the Book of Mormon was of God. I prayed and I received the answer through the Holy Ghost that it is.

How I live my faith

Living one's faith is a daily challenge, I think. Habits like praying and reading the scriptures are important for they help us to keep in touch with God and to have the Holy Spirit by our side. I have experienced that so many times. But having and showing love for one's neighbour is even more important. Understanding God's love is so deep and precious that it can change you. It makes you love your neighbour and want to help him. I know that nobody is perfect but I know that this is what makes us happy and I therefore I endeavor to act so.
