Hi I'm Julie

I'm a mother of five and a grandmother of 14. Married for 40 years to my best friend and greatest husband. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised as a Mormon. I am a mother of 5 and grandmother of 14. I will be leaving to serve a mission with my husband as a Church Education System specialist in May. We will be teaching classes in an institute of religion and supporting and working with young single adults ages 18-30. I love spending time with my grandchildren. Hobbies include snow skiing, traveling and doing cross stitch samplers celebrating the marriage of each child and the birth of each grandchild.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know without a doubt that this is the Church of Jesus Christ restored by God through the Prophet Joseph Smith in these latter days. I was raised by goodly parents who taught me the truths of the gospel. In my youth I relied upon their teachings. I have come to know for myself through witnesses from the Holy Ghost of the truths that they taught me. I have a strong testimony of Jesus Christ and the sacrifice he has made for me. This gospel has made me who I am. It has given me a life of happiness and joy. I also have a hope in the resurrection and through the atonement of Christ the privilege of returning home and living with Heavenly Father again. I also have a firm conviction that if we are faithful and obedient to God's commandments my family and I can be together forever.

How I live my faith

I am an active member of the Mormon church. I attend my weekly worship meetings. I serve as a volunteer in a temple of our church. I try my best to be a good example to my children and grandchildren in living the gospel of Jesus Christ. I find strength each morning in studying the scriptures and praying to my Father In Heaven. My husband and I are blessed to visit a state prison two nights a month to teach and encourage inmates in their faith.
