Hi I'm Joseph

I grew up in southern Utah. My life is all about the outdoors. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am an artist and an author, I love to imagine and create things. I love the outdoors and every activity that I can do outside, including dirt biking, hiking, kayaking, swimming, mountain biking, unicycling, and mountain boarding. 

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church, but like any other member, I had to gain a testimony of my own. My testimony didn't all come at once, but grew over the span of my life. While I read The Book of Mormon, I feel a peace, joy and excitement which I never feel anywhere else, which feelings I know are from the Holy Ghost. This to me proves that the Book of Mormon is from God, and that Jesus is the Christ. No arguements or foolish attempts to change my mind could convince me otherwise. I have also seen how the truth has blessed the lives of my family and others, which I know that only the full truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ could bring.

How I live my faith

I have been trying to do my best at not just living as Christ would, but sharing the truth with others just as Jesus Christ would. I serve the people in our community and our congregation almost daily, and also try helping others increase their faith in Christ and learn about the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Joseph
 A Restoration of the Gospel was needed because, although the world had the Holy Bible, no one had the Priesthood authority of God to lead and guide Christs Church. The fulness of the Gospel and the Priesthood authority of God was lost once Christ and all his Apostles died.  Show more Show less
