Hi I'm Joslin

I'm opinionated. I'm a wife & a mother. I have parents who are not Mormon. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently in graduate school earning a degree in social work. I enjoy volunteering my time to charities and planning charitable events. I have one wonderfully amazing little boy and a very patient husband. We live in a not too small but too small town. I love spending time with my family whether playing games, watching movies, or sharing and talking together. I love playing board games. I enjoy reading and wait for the day to read for fun again and not for school!

Why I am a Mormon

During my teenage years & early adulthood I questioned my faith in God AND my religion; not as one and the same. For years I knew something was missing and that I was not truly happy. I experienced a change of heart and started to receive council from my bishop. Since becoming a faithful member of the Mormon faith I have seen the power of the priesthood work multiple times in my own home. I know our Heavenly Father is aware of us and answers our prayers; prayer is a powerful tool. I know my family will be together for eternity, even after death, and that I will be reunited with family members who are not living anymore. Without my faith and the knowledge I've received from the Mormon faith I would be lost; because of this, I am a Mormon

How I live my faith

I serve Children in the Primary. I have always loved Children. It is their energy and temperament that creates growth in myself. I teach and hopefully inspire growth in them and their teachers! Whenever I make decisions, I always ask myself what Heavenly Father & Jesus would want me to do. I pray for my family, neighbors, kids I serve, and the kids I work with as a therapist.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

I am a Mormon woman. I think I'm normal (but that could be debated). I work outside of the home. I'm getting a Master's Degree. I think for myself. I'm opinionated and sometimes stubborn. I volunteer my time and love charitable work. My husband and I are equal partners in many things. We both love to work hard, we love our son, we love the Gospel, we love serving in the Mormon church. We both take the responsibility of parenting seriously and discuss what is best for our son frequently when making decisions. Without my husband I cannot reach my full potential; without me my husband cannot reach his full potential either. We are equals and in need of each other equally. Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

I think being a member of the Mormon Church is normal. I'm pretty sure I feel just like any other human being. However, I know that because of the knowledge I have- the information the Mormon Church teaches- that I am better prepared to endure challenges and love life. Show more Show less
