About the Speaker

 Julie Bangerter Beck Portrait

Julie Bangerter Beck

Julie Bangerter Beck was born in Salt Lake City, and as a child, lived in Sao Paulo, Brazil, for five years where her father presided over the Brazilian mission. There, she learned to speak Portuguese and developed a strong love for the Restored gospel of Jesus Christ. Sister Beck earned an Associate Degree at Dixie College and a Bachelor’s Degree at Brigham Young University. She met her husband Ramon in a Young Single Adult Sunday School class, and they were married in the Salt Lake Temple.

Sister Beck has been a leader and teacher in all the auxiliaries of the Church and at the MTC in Provo, Utah. She served for nearly fifteen years as a General Officer of the Church, first, on the Young Women General Board, next, as First Counselor in the Young Women General Presidency and then as the Fifteenth Relief Society General President. She also served on the Church Board of Education, the Church Welfare Committee, and on various Church History, Missionary, Temple and Public Affairs assignments.

By appointment of Governor Spencer Cox, Sister Beck serves on the Utah State Board of Higher Education, which oversees all universities, colleges, and trade schools in the State of Utah. Prior to that appointment, she served for nine years as a member of the Board of Trustees at Dixie State University, completing her term there by serving on behalf of the State as Chair of the committee to recommend the name of the school be changed to Utah Tech University.

Sister Beck is also serving on the Executive Board of the BYU Alumni Association. In 2018, Desert Book published Joy in the Covenant, a book she authored about our identity and purpose in the House of Israel.

She is most content when she is with her family and studying the Gospel with them. She loves to spoil their 18 grandchildren by taking them to temples, golfing with them, driving them in her Jeep Wrangler, planning birthday celebrations, treating them to feasts and waffle breakfasts, making gallons of hot chocolate and popcorn for sledding parties, hosting sleep overs and movie nights, and taking them on “mission preparation” trips.
