Hi I'm Josh.

I'm a Mormon. I have been teaching for over a decade. I feel educating our children is one of the higher callings given to us.

About Me

I am a husband to one of the most remarkable and wonderful women of our world. We have been blessed with the opportunity to raise four beautiful children who enhance our lives through their personalities and love. We are a family who loves to read great books and play a good game of hide-and-go-seek. I love to play volleyball and enjoy the outdoors. I have been teaching and educating elementary students for over a decade. I am given the responsibility to create an environment of learning where each student feels safe and respected. Through this, I feel I can change the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the missionaries visiting my parents when I was young. It is through the spirit my parents felt that I had the opportunity to grow up in the church. I continue to be a Mormon because of the spirit I have felt. I know, without a doubt, that Joseph Smith restored the gospel on this earth. I know that the priesthood was restored through the hands of those commissioned to do so. Without the priesthood being restored, we could not enjoy the blessings of eternity, namely eternal life and eternal families. I know that our prophet is the voice of our Lord. He leads and directs this church. I am especially a Mormon because I know our Savior is at the head of this church. He died for our sins and suffered for our pains. I hope to raise my children to feel their Savior's love. I hope to rear them with the faith and motivation to overcome any obstacles that will come their way by relying on our Lord and being humble enough to follow his guidance.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving in any way I can in each of the opportunities I have been given. I have the ultimate chance to work with the young men of our ward. I am able to help them stay working and organized as they work on the "Duty to God" program. This program is a great tool to help each individual find the best mode to conversion, education, and spirituality by allowing them to pursue a program designed by themselves. I also live my faith by teaching other families in our ward. I have the opportunity to teach and visit and get to know the members of each of my hometeaching families. It has been fun to get to know the children in these families and learn about their accomplishments and school progress.
