Hi I'm Joel

I play football, lacrosse and rugby. I love my family. I'm the brown sugar to any party, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Argentina. I grew up in utah. I have loved sports all my life. As log as i can remember I have had a ball in my hand. My first love has always been football. Its in my blood. Its definitely our family activity. my younger brothers play it my mom and my lil sis love it. we get super into just about any of the sports we do. its a lot of fun to watch the whole fam come together to support who evers playing I went to a year of college before my mission and i plan to go back and get a degree in Broadcast journalism. even in my career choice I wanted to do something where I could stay close to sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have seen what life is like without my faith. I have watched my family become so much happier by living the principles of the Gospel. Some people think you have to be born outside the church to be a convert, but i disagree. I grew up in the church but i went thru the motions. it was not until my life hit rock bottom that i was humbled enough by God to truly look at what i was taught and see that the way i was living was contrary to it and that i was not happy. my mom never forced but always encoouraged and showed me her love. it is because of her that i know God loves me. She taught it to me from a young age and never gave up. A lot of people think its crazy for someone to willingly live the Gospel standards, let alone for teens and young adults. It wasnt until my mission that I truly got to see the difference in my life because of obedience to these norms. Why am I mormon? Because the Holy Ghost has testified to me countless times that Jesus is the Christ. That He lives. That Joseph Smith was and is the Prophet of the restoration and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. That we are led by a prophet today. I'm mormon because it has brought peace and joy to my life and my family :)

How I live my faith

I am on a mission preaching the Gospel in the great texas houston south mission. For 2 yrs of my life that is all I will do everyday. I try to be a good example to my brothers and sister. I try to uplift all I come in conact with.  

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Joel
 The purpose of our life here on earth is to be able to prepare ourselves to be able to stand before God at the last day. Show more Show less
