Hi I'm Josh Risher

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an Officer in the United States Army. I've been married to my lovely wife Amanda since 2005, and we have two beautiful little girls.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church, and when I was 13 years old, I gained a testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ through prayer and the witness of the Holy Ghost. While I was not always stalwart growing up, my testimony and knowledge of the Atonement of Jesus Christ have grown with me. Their is nothing more precious to me than knowing that I am a child of a loving Heavenly Father, and that through His wonderful plan I, along with my family, can return to His presence one day.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying every day to become more like who and what the Savior wants me to be. He suffered for my sins and died so that I could be forgiven and have the opportunity to repent and become better than what I am--so that I could become holy, just like He is. I have a long way to go, but I strive to do my part; through His grace I will be there one day.
