Hi I'm Julius

I look forward to the future, I love talking with people, getting to know their stories, I read a lot of books, and i'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on September 25th, 2010. I served a mission in the Dominican Republic Santo Domingo West Mission in the years 2012-2014. I am a full time student at the moment, pursuing my degree in Human Resource Management. I have hopes of one day attending Brigham Young University for my Masters Degree. I love to eat large quantities of food. I love to exercise and do physical activities; partly because I love to eat large quantities of food. I can sit down with a book for hours, depending on how long the book is, if determined I will finish an entire series in a very short amount of time. I love talking, I can thrive in groups of people, and I can also find solace in being alone from time to time. I generally seek to do my best, and to do what's right in every situation. I do my best to treat others the way I would like to be treated.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have received a personal witness that this church is true. Through trials, tribulations, tears, and much hardship I have been able to craft a testimony of my very own. The wonderful thing about this gospel, is that it doesn't end there. I can continue to progress, I can continue to keep moving forward in my knowledge and testimony of God. The confidence I have received in myself, the personal knowledge I have gained of my Savior, and the ability to serve others have changed me in my short time within the church. Despite how hard things may be, or difficult the times, in the end the Lord always keeps the promises He has made, and it ALWAYS works out in the end. I love the Savior, I know this is His true gospel. I am a Mormon, tried and true. The things I experience on a daily basis, my feelings, desires, everything, are a testament to the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which is only found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through obedience to the Lord. Never questioning why things the way they are, always asking Him through prayer to give me understanding. I strive to do my best to study things out in my mind, and heart with scripture study, prayer, and pondering. I pray for challenges and trials, for I know they are opportunities for me to grow my testimony, and receive confirmations for myself that what I believe in is true. I always do my best to seek the good in others, and reach out to those who are alone. I pray for love, hope, and faith. With the gifts, blessings I've been given I do my best to share these things with others.

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

Julius
This question is always something that I had struggled with having a foundation of religion in my different areas. With so many answers, and points of view how is one to know exactly the answer to this question? I have gained a testimony that death isn't the end, it's really the gateway for us to continue to move on in eternity. We believe that we will have the opportunity to become like our Father in Heaven, and inherit all that He has. Death is just another step for us to continue forward. Show more Show less

What is faith?

Julius
This was always a hard concept for me to grasp, because I had moments in my life searching for God and never really finding anything. It was weird for me, and quite possibly others to grasp Faith in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints just looking in from the window on the outside. In order for you to understand Faith, in this gospel, or anywhere, it requires work, it requires you to jump in with both feet. To me, Faith is believing, believing despite the obstacles, challenges, and obstructions in my path. My Faith is something that is worked, beat to pieces, tried and tried again. It's something that I have bled for, I have cried for, and I have sacrificed for. It gives me the power to continue, to try again, and to move forward. Show more Show less
