Hi I'm Joshua Timothy

I'm a Dad, I'm a Student, I speak Spanish, I play 2 instruments.... and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm a dad and love every minute of it! I am a person that loves change. Life is so full of adventure, and I'm always ready to explore. I am graduating in Global Communication from Utah State University. I want to be a Cultural Analyst, helping cultures of the world come to a common understanding. I love the camping, fishing, rock climbing, boating, and practically anything you can do outdoors. I love working with computers, editing photos & music, programming, and exploring the newest types of technology. I am an Eagle Scout. I play the piano, guitar, and organ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this church is true by personal experience. Thanks to loving parents, they raised me with good standards, teaching me about God and his Son Jesus Christ. I always have believed in God, but felt like I didn't really know if this church was true. I didn't doubt it, but I really didn't know. I will say that key thing in coming to know if this church was true was by reading the Book of Mormon. I had read it, and knew of its stories, but never did have the true desire to read it and really know if it was true. As I was passing through a difficult time in my life spiritually, the thought came to my mind, to open my Book of Mormon and read a particular chapter in Alma. As I read that chapter, my doubts disappeared and the uneasiness that I felt was filled with peace. Through prayer and studying of the Book of Mormon and the Bible, I know that God lives, that Christ died and was resurrected to open the door to those who accept and follow His teachings, and that this is His only true church on the earth with a living Prophet and 12 apostles.

How I live my faith

I live a normal life, going to school, and working. I always try to find time for my Heavenly Father to help others. My wife and I try to study the scriptures together often, and teach our little boy about the gospel of Jesus Christ. We always like going to church weekly, and get to teach a class full of children about the scriptures. In this day and age there is so much evil. We limit the kind of movies and music that enters our home to always have a home of love and peace.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

Joshua Timothy
To protect us from the growing evils in the world that seem to be affecting more and more people, God gave a law of health to Joseph Smith in 1833. Heavenly Father knew that different substances would be created and used that cause harm to the human body. God has spoken against the use of tobacco, alcohol, coffee and tea, and illegal drugs. All of these things destroy our precious gift from god, our body. More than just saying things that we cannot eat, God focuses on explaining the importance of eating a healthy diet using moderation in all things. We should eat grains, vegetables, fruits, meats, etc. God promises blessings of health and wisdom. He also promises that his spirit will be constant companion in guiding us to choose the right always and protecting us from evil. Show more Show less
