Hi I'm Josh

I'm a graduate student and grew up in 7 U.S. states. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in California with my wife and our two sons, with whom I enjoy hiking, going to the beach, visiting historical sites and museums, and playing sports. Currently, I am a student pursuing a graduate degree in business.

Why I am a Mormon

My ancestors became members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints generations ago in Switzerland and the United States. I grew up going to church, studying the scriptures, and praying. These activities have helped me understand the purpose of life and what God expects of me. I feel accountable to Him and want to live a good and serviceable life. I want to be of benefit to my fellowmen. My membership in the Mormon Church means more to me than I can describe in words. It brings me peace, happiness, purpose and hope. It helps me understand how to best use my time. Most importantly, it helps me strengthen my family, my wife and our two boys.

How I live my faith

I find ways to serve in the community, including coaching youth sports. I look for ways to help others, give encouraging words, and help others by lifting their burdens. In addition, in my local congregation, I have taught and organized activities for youth and children. Currently, I help organize sport activities and special events.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

I seek to increase my faith in Jesus Christ by learning about him and trying to be like him. Studying his words brings me great peace and purpose. Show more Show less
