Hi I'm Josh

I'm a computer and video game designer, I'm a husband, I'm a father, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a senior designer at a major computer and video game company. I'm also a husband and father to 3 little girls. I have a PhD and did a dissertation in statistics and machine learning. I like using math to make games more fun!

Why I am a Mormon

The simplest answer is I honestly feel God has told me directly to be a Mormon. I have a hard time saying no to that!

How I live my faith

I keep a smile on my face and in my heart. I try to be kind. I try to love others, starting with God, and then my wife, and then my family. I try to spend time with my family, both quantity and quality. I try and keep a prayer in my heart so I know if God is happy with how I'm living my life.

What do Mormons believe happens after we die?

Josh
Even though our bodies die, we all have a spirit as well. When we die, our spirit separates from our bodies and goes to a place we call the spirit world. In the spirit world, we associate with other spirits. We can communicate with them just like we talk to each other now. If we live our lives how God wants, then the spirit world is a happy place. We get to meet again with loved ones who have also passed on. If we haven't lived how God wants, it's not a happy place. In the spirit world, we wait for the resurrection. At some point, our spirits will be reunited again with our bodies. Because Jesus Christ was resurrected, we will all one day come back to life after we die, whether we've been good or not. Those who lived how God wanted will then be able to live with Him, as well as with other members of their family that also remained faithful. Those who didn't follow Christ wouldn't feel comfortable living with God. They will live in a place much better than where we are now, but not as happy of a place as living with God. That gives a quick summary of what happens after we die. God loves us so much he's made sure we all get a great deal, good and bad. I hope to go for the best possible eternal ending to my short mortal story! Show more Show less
