Hi I'm Josh

I come from a small town background. I enjoy sports, singing, and playing the piano. I love life and people. I am LDS Mormon.

About Me

I am going to start college in the fall as a freshman. I enjoy almost all sports, especially volleyball, racquteball, softball and all sorts of other fun things. I played basketball in high school and enjoyed being involved in groups such as student council, symphonic band, choir, and others. I also love singing, swing dancing and playing the piano. i am not sure what i want to major in at college but i am excited to get the opportunity to grow and learn in a college atmosphere. I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It has brought so much happiness and direction in my life. I am preparing to serve a two year full time lds mission and am way excited to share with others this gospel which means so very much to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am LDS (Mormon) because of the truth, dirction, and happiness that it has provided in my life. I came to a time in my life where i felt alone, fake, weighed down in sin, and confused. I have grown up in this religion my entire life, but i wasn't sure that i believed it. Through a series of wonderful opportunities i decided that i wanted to know for myself if this gospel was true. I began reading the Book of Mormon and other scriptures and praying to our loving Heavenly Father to know if it was true. there is a promise in the Book of Mormon that if you pray and ask if it is not true, in faith, you will recieve an answer. i recieved my answer. I know that our Heavenly Father loves us so much and is waiting for us, with arms wide open, to come to him. He knows each of us personally and is aware of the struggles that we each have going on in our lives. I came to know then and i know now that we are children of God. He loves us so much. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true restored church of God through a latter day prophet Joseph Smith. I know that Thomas S. Monson is the true prophet of God on the earth today. I know that the Book of Mormon is truely another testiment of Jesus Christ along with the Bible. I know that our older brother Jesus Christ atoned for our sins, pains, and weaknesses. I know that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ we can come to be forgiven for our mistakes and be healed no matter how big or small they may be. I know that the Atonement of Christ is real and through this we can also come to forgive ourselves, find the strength to endure trying and painful times, and come to have true peace and happiness in our lives.

How I live my faith

My faith is everything that i am trying to be. i try to make it a part of everything i do and try my best to include it in every decision i make. In my ward i am an assistant in helping with the 16-18 year old young men. i help plan and participated in activities each Wednesday night. i love the opportunities that this gives me and enjoy getting to become good friends with the young men i work with, while sharing that part of my life that means most to me with them. My faith is everything that i try to be.
