For both Brad and Julie, family is first and foremost. We have 7 children: 4 boys who came first, followed by our 3 lovely girls.

Julie was raised in Murray but moved to Pleasant Grove during her high school years. She was active in student government, a disc jockey for KPGR radio, and a cheerleader. She worked following high school at the Bank of Pleasant Grove and attended UVU where she studied business. She was selected as Miss Pleasant Grove for 1978-79 and in this capacity delivered strawberries to President Spencer W. Kimball who challenged her to “make no small plans – they have no magic to stir men’s souls.” Acting on this challenge, Julie applied for and accepted a mission call to serve in the England London South Mission (1980-82). She first served under the direction of BYU’s own Ben E. Lewis. Since that time, her life has been continually filled with all sorts of service, both in and outside of the home. No task is too big or too small for Julie. She has volunteered as a hospital Pink Lady, a preschool aide at the Methodist pre-school, a reading tutor, Director of the Miss Uintah Basin Pageant and numerous leadership callings within the LDS Church. Her greatest joy is in her children and now her grandchildren – they are her life’s work and her pride and joy. Julie loves Broadway Theater, music and the Arts. She enjoys travel (especially near an ocean), gardening, canning, reading, cooking and entertaining.
