Hi I'm Josh

I balance sports, school, friends, fun, and the teachings of Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I really enjoy sports. My favorite sport is basketball. I also really like football and volleyball. Another hobby i have is reading. I have read a lot of books the majority have been fantasy like Harry Potter Lord of the Rings Or Ender's Game. I am going to college right now though I am not sure what I should study. I am thinking about engineering or business or becoming a history teacher. As you can see my choices haven't been narrowed down very much.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the church because of the unmistakable feelings I ave felt that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints really is lead by Jesus Christ Himself. When I read the Book of Mormon which is another testament of Jesus Christ I can feel it in my soul. I have felt the same feelings as I have read the Bible and learned from the perfect example of Jesus Christ. One reason I know I am on the right track is the many blessings I have received by following the prophet's counsel. The current prophet is Thomas s. Monson. He is a man called of God to guide us along with the twelve Apostles just like Elijah or Moses or Paul of olden times. As I have done what the prophet has asked i have seen blessings.

How I live my faith

Every Sunday I go to church to fellowship with the other members. We help each other learn about Jesus Christ and strive to follow his example. No one gets paid to work at our church. Everything happens based on service. When we are all serving and working towards the same goal it creates an atmosphere of love. I have found that as I serve it stretches me a little as a person and I have become better.

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Lots of people refer to us as "mormons" because of a book of holy scripture we study named the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It is a record of his dealings with the people of the ancient Americas. The prophet who compiled this book in these ancient times was named Mormon. That is where the book received its name. As a church we do not find the term "Momon" offensive. Show more Show less
