Hi I'm Josh

I am an Odd-Ball of a 20 year old, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20 yrs old. I graduated HS in 2009. During my senior year I took the Nursing Assistant Exam and am now a Certified Nurses Assistant. I achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, in the Boy Scouts of America just barely before I turned 18. I love animals and worked at the Fresno Chaffee Zoo with the Winged Wonders Bird Show for about a year and a half. I like hiking, camping in the snow, in the desert, at the beach, in the forest, hunting, rock climbing, swimming, sailing, fishing, and a lot of other stuff. When I get older I want to be either a Surgeon or a Veterinarian. I haven't decided yet. I very much enjoy Herping; Looking for reptiles and amphibians. Especially in the mountains out in California and well, everywhere else really.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this church is true. I was raised in this church, but that doesn't mean I didn't have to find out for myself that it was true. I am a Mormon because I love God our Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ. Everything they teach in the church is from God, and it's for our benefit. That is why I strive to follow His teachings. This church has blessed me and my family so much. And I love this church and its members.

How I live my faith

I haven't really ever been given an assignment or calling in the church. I help others with their callings though and have enjoyed doing that. The main thing I would help out with is the Linger Longer and Break The Fast Committee, they dealt with preparing food for after church services on the first and third sundays of the month. I would also go to our wards Family Home Evening every monday or tuesday evening. Family Home Evening is when people from the ward would get together and have a short lesson, then play games and have a small snack. It was really fun.
