Hi I'm Juliet

I was born and raised in Connecticut, I'm a Sociology student, I'm a full-time missionary in Orlando, Florida, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm interested in how people and societies function and interact, so Sociology has become a passion of mine. I plan to go to Physical Therapy school after I finish my undergraduate degree, so I can work hands-on with people and make a positive difference in their lives. I love to play harmonica, listen to music, hike, camp, swim, and spend time with the people in my life that are important to me. As of January 2015, I am a full-time sister missionary.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints, but I have my own strong testimony of its truthfulness. I have experienced strength, comfort, and joy in times of extreme hardship beyond my own abilities, and have felt the Holy Spirit testify to me of the truthfulness of this gospel. I have felt my prayers being answered. I have fallen and made mistakes, and felt myself grow to be stronger than before through the gospel. In short, being a member of this church has allowed me to feel joy I have never found anywhere else, and has made me so much more than I could have ever been without it. I have faith in Jesus Christ and I know that He loves me. I believe in the power of His Atoning sacrifice. I have a testimony that the Book of Mormon is the word of God that stands in conjunction with the Bible. I know we have a Father in Heaven that loves us, and wants us to experience joy and success, and I know that without Him, I am nothing. I'm so grateful to be a member of this church, and am honored to be able to serve as a missionary for a year and a half.

How I live my faith

In high school, I was in charge of organizing activities for the girls in my age group, and in college I organized weekly activities for my whole student ward. In student wards, since people are away from their families, we organize people into groups that meet once a week on Mondays for activities to bond, uplift, and strengthen the group members. This is called "family home evening", and is usually something Mormon families do together weekly. This month, I will be starting my full-time service as a missionary for the next 18 months.
