Hi I'm Josh

I grew up in Utah. I'm serving a mission in Jacksonville Florida. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My favorite things to do are playing my guitars, listening to music, and going to concerts. And i love to sing. Music is a big part in my life. I love water sports. Boating, wave running, wake boarding, and tubing. The mountains are my favorite place in the world. I love camping in them and exploring the many hiking trails, or even if there isn't a trail i still explore.

Why I am a Mormon

Before i really cared about being a mormon i didn't care much about what my family thought was best for me. I just wanted to do my own thing because it was my life and it was my choice what i was to do with it. But later it really woke me up when i finally saw how much pain i was causing my family. I decided to fix everything and get my life straight. After a long time i was finally forgiven and my family and I got so much closer. I even had the opportunity to go to a big youth activity soon after. It was there that i felt the Spirit tell me that this is real. I know that this is Gods true church. It brings so much love in the home and you constantly feel Gods love for you. I testify of this. Knowing this helps me get through everyday even when there is a rough day. And life is full of those. It also comforts me to know that everything will be okay as long as i am good.

How I live my faith

I love this gospel so much that i decided to serve the Lord by going on a mission. To leave home for 2 years of my life to share what i know with others. I am serving in Jacksonville, Florida and all the cities around it. You probably see us going around on our bikes wearing white shirts and ties. I run into so many people who want to change their lives. We help these people by sharing a message of comfort and it changes a lot of peoples lives. We also look for other kinds of service. whether someone needs to paint there house or just need there garbage taken out. We are always looking for opportunities to help others.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Josh
God lives. He is our Father in heaven and we are His children. Jesus Christ is the Son of God that suffered for us. He is our Savior and Redeemer. Through Him we can be cleansed of all sin. God sent His Son not to condemn the world but to save the world. Jesus Christ lives. We can return to Him and our Father. But the only way we can is if we are clean from sin. Show more Show less

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Josh
The family is the best support system that we have out there. We learn from our parents what to do and what not to do. We also learn how to love and care for one another. We learn how to come closer to Christ and his teachings. We help each other when there is no one else. There is so much happiness in a family that will be there through thick and thin. One of Gods greatest gift to us is the family. Show more Show less

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Josh
The Book of Mormon was written by inspired men of God who lived on the Americas before Jesus Christ was born and during his life in Jerusalem. These men were called prophets. Just like the prophets in the bible. They wrote there experiences with Christ's gospel and how it helped them through their times of trial. The Book of Mormon has a story of a man who invites all men everywhere to read the Book of Mormon, to ponder in their hearts the message it contains, and then to pray and ask God, in the name of Christ, if the book is true. And it promises if you ask with faith and sincerely wanting to know the truth from God, He will tell you through the feelings in your heart and mind. In other words the Spirit will tell you. This book will change your life. Show more Show less
