Hi I'm Julie

I absolutely love being a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Better known as "I'm a Mormon."

About Me

I was born in a small town called Ozona. My father and grandfather were commercial shrimpers. I learned at a young age to love people. Our small town were all friends of ours. We went to church on Sundays, in my aunts house. I was raised a Mormon from childhood. That is something I am very proud of. Mormons teach about love and families. Both go together. The town of Ozona was full of Love and Family. I am now raising two grandchildren. My husband and I have recently celebrated 43 years of marriage. He is my best friend and eternal partner. We have 4 children and 9 grandchildren. I am so glad to know Families are Forever.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have learned for myself that this is what Heavenly Father wants for me. No one tells you that you have to join. It is a religion where you are taught to pray and begin a friendship with Heavenly Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. You ask what is right for you? If you ask with real faith, he will manifest the truth unto you. If I need help with anything, I know they are there for me. They are always there for each of us, all you have to do is open the door.

How I live my faith

I love going to church. We do not have a paid minister. All positions in our church are volunteered. We always have plenty of things to keep us busy. I work with the young children in 8 different meeting houses. The music that is taught to our young children teaches them about love and the love of our Heavenly Father and Jesus. It teaches them how to choose the right. I remember as a young child how much joy I got from our hymns and I still do.

What is faith?

Faith is such an important part of our life while here on earth. When I need help with something I can always call upon my Heavenly Father. I can then walk away from whatever it is and know that he will take care of it. It may not be taken care of exactly the way I wanted it at that moment, but later on down the road I find out exactly why it happened like that. Show more Show less
