Hi I'm Joey

After growing up in Aiken, SC. I moved to Mesa, AZ and am the founder of a software company. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a redneck from South Carolina now living and working in a big city. I am a software developer, and a newly wed of almost 4 years. I love my wife, building things, and being creative.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I have found that living the teachings of Jesus brings great happiness. The Mormon Church contains those teachings in their fullness. While there are still many mysteries of God, He has revealed all the answers that are important to us today in our day.

How I live my faith

I attend church every week, read scriptures and pray with my wife before we go to sleep each night. Most importantly I do my best to be like Christ by being kind to others, helping whenever I can. Helping others in a time of need brings a unique joy and satisfaction.

What is the purpose of the welfare services of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

The church welfare system helps people get back on their feet. It is not a hand-out, it is a hand-up. Members of the church happily serve in Bishops store houses (like a small grocery store, but without any cash registers), Church welfare farms, and Church employment centers. The church's Perpetual Education Fund serves a similar purpose. As it helps people who otherwise couldn't obtain education and thus improve their ability to be self-reliant. The welfare system also provides opportunities for members of the church to help the "poor and needy" in a highly efficient manner. Maximizing the donations of time and money to help as many people as possible. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Grace is what makes up the difference when we fall short. Whether it be at Judgement or when we need help to overcome a personal challenge. Show more Show less
