Hi I'm Joel

I grew up in southern Louisiana. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Growing up in southern Louisiana has given me the opportunity to love and enjoy the outdoors and all of God's creations. I enjoy boating and fishing and spending time with my family. I'm a dad of four wonderful children who have enriched and blessed my life. When I'm not out on the bayous and marshes I spend my time managing a locksmith business and serving in the church.

Why I am a Mormon

My membership in the church has been the greatest blessing in my life because of the simplicity of it's teachings and God's love for all his children. The book of Mormon has answered my questions about His plan for me. I am grateful for eternal families and the atonement of Jesus Christ. It is because of His teachings and the council of modern day prophets and apostles my life is blessed.

How I live my faith

My time practicing my faith is spent in the service of others. My calling gives me the opportunity to lose myself and see others needs. Although speaking in public has never been my strength it helps me to overcome my weakness and draw closer to God.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a member of the Mormon Church gives you the opportunity to see others as the Savior did. It has allowed me to see where my priorities need to be. It is very family oriented and rewarding because of the opportunity to serve others. Being a member of the church is like belonging to a wonderful family. Show more Show less
