Hi I'm Joseph

I'm a husband, a father, a family therapist, and a Mormon.

About Me

I am a family therapist. I have a wife and four beautiful children, 2 boys, and 2 girls.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was born, my parents were already members of the Church. I spent 14 or so years of my life being in the Church because my parents were. Then I wanted to know for myself if the Church was the right thing for me. So I did what missionaries all over the world challenge people to do: read the Book of Mormon and pray about it. The way I figured, if the Book of Mormon was true, then the Church was true also. I received a witness that the Book of Mormon was true. Since then, I have had other experiences where I have felt of the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ that continue to strengthen my testimony that this is the true Church of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith everyday through trying to live as my Savior would. I try to be kind and loving to others. I try to learn more about Christ through daily scripture study. I attend church services weekly. I am in a leadership position of a group of men that's purpose is to help us all become more like Christ and to build his kingdom. I try to live so that others who see me will also desire to follow Christ.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Faith is a wonderful thing. Faith leads us to action. When we believe in something, we follow those beliefs. If we believe in Jesus Christ, we love Him and follow his commandments. That is one way to increase our faith in Jesus Christ--to do what he asks of us. When we study and learn about our Savior's life and teachings, we will understand what is required of us upon the earth. When we follow the teachings we learn the Holy Ghost will touch our lives and encourage us to continue on the path. We will see our lives blessed. That is a wonderful way to increase our faith in Jesus Christ, to hear him through the scriptures, to follow his commandments, and to receive a witness that what we are doing is right.
