Hi I'm Joseph Barton

I am a Dad, Surfer, Coach and a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints

About Me

I live in California, with my wife and five daughters. We love the outdoors and spending time as a family at the beach, surfing, or mountain biking along the foothills and mountains. We love to play almost any sport so we can enjoy eating lots of food especially ice cream.

Why I am a Mormon

 I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints because it brings joy and happiness into my life and makes me a better person. In the Bible it talks about the fruits of the Spirit or the Holy Ghost. I have felt the Holy Ghost testify to me that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. Every week as I attend church I feel the Holy Ghost witness to me that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. Feeling the Spirit brings peace and happiness to my soul. The gospel makes my family stronger, it brings us close together as we focus our lives on serving our Savior Jesus Christ. 

How I live my faith

 In a difficult world I deal honestly with others. I look for opportunities to give meaningful service. I love to coach and participate in sports with my kids. As a coach I can teach life lessons that will extend outside the game we are playing and help mold them into better people.
