Hi I'm Joshua

Born and raised in Alaska, love snowmobiling, learning new things, traveling, designing, music, languages, life and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a student currently and have always loved learning. I am currently studying Architecture and love designing and creating and building things. I served a mission in Australia Chinese speaking which has given me a great love for both language and people. I really enjoy learning about different cultures and their history and their languages. I love the nature and beautiful creations God has blessed us with and love being outside and taking pictures. I love getting to know people and sharing what I have to offer and learning from them. Music is a big part of my life, I like listening to music, playing guitar, singing, and writing songs. The more I learn in life the better it gets.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is because I have seen the miracles that come from knowing our relationship as humans with God, that He is the father of our spirits and creator of this world. Knowing that God created this earth as a place where we could come to live and learn, be blessed with bodies and all of the senses and feelings and experiences that we never would have had as spirits alone, has helped me to know of His love for us. Knowing that we have a purpose and meaning in life, which is to live according to God's will and commandments and plan for us which will allow us to receive pure and eternal happiness, bless and serve our brothers and sisters and help as many others as we can to feel and know of God's love for them.

How I live my faith

I try every day to share some of what I have been blessed with both temporarily and physically and help who ever I come across to see the beauties in life and know of their true worth, abilities and potential. I feel service is an incredible way to show people the love God has for them and the love God gives us for them as we serve them. Do you feel good when you help someone? So do I! It gives you a great feeling, this feeling comes from the Holy Ghost testifying to your heart that what you are doing is right, unlike "self gratifying happiness" this feeling is not selfish, and is something that will bring you closer to God. I enjoy cutting firewood for those who may not be able to do it for themselves, writing letters or notes of encouragement to those who may need uplifting, helping paint, or build or work in the yard. I also like staying involved in the community by going to community events getting to know people, and having our own events that can uplift and edify and give people a chance to have family friendly activities. This year I was in charge of our 3rd annual Live Musical Nativity we have been having in our community and it was a great way to share the story of Christ's birth and touch hearts.
