Hi I'm Joseph

I'm the oldest of eleven children. I'm a husband. I'm a Dad. I'm an architect. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy reading, drawing, music, movies and spending time with my family. I'm interested in computers and have fun making home movies. I have a Master's degree in Architecture and a Master's of Science in the Built Environment. I'm married to a wonderful wife and I'm the dad of two wild (but cute) little boys.

Why I am a Mormon

I am fortunate to have grown up in the Church. My parents were members, their parents were members, and on back to the early days of the Church. I've always believed the Church was the true church of Jesus Christ. I remember the first time I read the Book of Mormon on my own. I had just been baptized at 8 years old when I started. That's when I started to know the Church was true. I must have read the Book of Mormon over 13 times until I left on my mission to Germany at 19 years old. Through my experiences sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the German people, I came to know without any doubt that the things I had been taught as a child and was then teaching others was from God. To this day, I still have a firm knowledge of this.

How I live my faith

I've always enjoyed serving in the Church. Whether it's been cleaning our church building, teaching a 12 year old Sunday school class, being a secretary to the leaders in our ward, or heading the missionary efforts, all of these callings have helped me become a more devoted follower of Jesus Christ.
