Hi I'm Julie

I'm a mother of 4, a vegetarian, and love natural health. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and have 4 children. I love seeing my children grow up and find out who they are and what they're good at. One of my favorite things to do is to sit and listen to my kids sing and play music together. I'm a massage therapist and spend time teaching others how to care for their bodies. I find a lot of satisfaction in my work. I also like to find ways to express myself and enjoy dancing, art and music. I took a few belly dancing classes a few years ago and still love putting on my hip scarf and shaking my hips.

Why I am a Mormon

I have spent time throughout my adult life developing a relationship with God. I have done this through personal study time - reading scripture, writing, and prayer. I have also made a practice of attending my church every Sunday and in doing that, and my personal study, I now feel God's presence in my life daily. I know He is there and that He loves me. I feel His Spirit frequently and describe it as a feeling of joy and knowing. This feeling guides my life and my choices. I want to return to my Heavenly Father's presence and so I strive to align my choices with what I feel He wants for me. This brings a great peace to my life.

How I live my faith

I love to work in my community with those on hospice care. I get to visit them, talk with them, and support them in their preparations to pass from this life. As this happens I learn so much about them and about what my Heavenly Father has in store for us when we return to Him. It helps me feel close to God and is a special way to serve His children. I'm so grateful for the opportunity I had to be around my Grandmother several years ago when she was getting ready to die. The experience opened me to the possibility of working with hospice and within a year after her passing I was volunteering in that capacity. It's been a great blessing in my life.
