Hi I'm Joshua

I've been a Latter-Day Saint my whole life. I was taught by my parents but convinced by the Holy Ghost.

About Me

Im a tennis player Its my passion. I love to play everyday when I can. I am a two time state champion from Utah. I'm a full time student studying psychology and I thoroughly enjoy it. I am the oldest of my parents 4 children which comes with a lot of responsibility. I love playing all kinds of sports. I play the guitar and have recently found a lot of pleasure in photography and drawing. I love my culture. My father is Mexican but born in the United States and my mother is white. My family is the most important thing to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church. I have not always been a true disciple. As i look back on my life i have always known that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true Church on the earth. Sadly, because of disobedience that belief was covered by the vain things of the world which created doubt. As I have grown I have gone through experiences that have stood as a witness to me that this Church is true and is led by Jesus Christ Himself. I am not a Mormon because my mother and father are. I am Mormon because the Holy Ghost has directed me to be. I have earnestly and sincerely prayed to know and I have been shown through revelation from my Heavenly Father who loves me enough to not lead me astray.

How I live my faith

I have served as a full-time missionary in Sierra Leone and Liberia, West Africa for two years. I have served as a doctrine teacher and even a teacher for 8-10 year old kids. This is not my ideal explanation of how I live my faith though. Ever since I gained a firm testimony that I am a son of God I have always sought to behave as such. I live my faith by standing up for what I believe, not by yelling at everyone for doing bad things but by mere example. I am not perfect but I do my best to teach people about my faith by the way that I live. In the past I was not a good example of a Latter-Day Saint nor an example of a disciple of Christ. Even now I am not the "ideal disciple" but I am trying. As I have gained a knowledge of who I am in relation to Deity I have conducted myself as one of His sons. It is hard and I do mess up but fortunately I have friends and family who know my values and correct me when they see me falter. I live my faith by repenting everyday, by correcting my mistakes.
