Hi I'm Joshua

I'm a Latter Day Saint and Lovin It.

About Me

I am a missionary, following what I know to be the work of Jesus Christ today. I grew up a member of this church, but have my own conversion just like anyone else. I know through diligient prayer, conversation with God, that I have grown up with this truth and authority from Jesus Christ himself.

Why I am a Mormon

I have found a true sense of identity and purpose through my studies, mental and spoken debates, and finding a reason for life. There is so much more. There is so much we can learn to understand. I have found the way to unlock eternal life, the code to enter eternal salvation, and the comfort from the difficulties this life.

How I live my faith

I follow strict standards as a missionary in this church, or rather as a representative of the one and only Jesus Christ, our savior and redeemer. I have studied out much of the doctrine provided and learned so much about the eternal plan the God created for us. I know who I am and I want to bring the world God's truth and his true love.

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

Joshua
 Families are Forever. The family unit is a safe and special way for us to grow as people and to learn about dealing with others throughout life. It is, as we know, ordained by God to be such, and much, much, more. Families may have there troubles, no one is perfect and when you bring more and more imperfect people together, general chaos is the affect. This does not however change the amazing amount of growth and strength you can gain from living and loving these people. It means a lot to me to know that I will forever have a support system in my life, even after I have fallen into to Earth. That I will be able to share my life accomplihments and the accomplishments after life with these people that will forever love and cherish my presence in their life, and likewise.

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?

Joshua
I think the growth of this church is derived from the deep insight that God has restored his church to this earth. We can all grow and progress, actually that is our purpose in life. I think people find great peace, but more than that, they find great purpose, meaning, and initiative from understanding the atonement, and Christ's mission for us on earth. I love learning daily as a Missionary for God, and I hope that my purpose will be fulfilled as I struggle to serve people. It's very wonderful to have an all encompassing, understandable, and simple church.

What is the priesthood?

Joshua
The Priesthood is the power to act in God's name. This is His Power and Authority on Earth given to us to use. This is the power and authority by which Christ was baptized and the same power authority by which he performed miracles and taught the people in his time. Now the priesthood has some very practical uses and some very special ones as well. As missionaries go around to teach this restored gospel and tell everyone about it, the authority in which they do so is in the authority of God, by holding the priesthood. As members of the church worthy males can perform blessings by the power and authority of God, which you can feel, and they govern the church in the same way. The priesthood is the way Christ tells his leaders what he would have them do in their postions and the way miracles are performed, even in the homes of members. We Heal the sick, we teach, and we live by the power and authority of God. Show more Show less
