Hi I'm Joshua Carter

I love my family. I enjoy playing sports. I'm a big nerd. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well a little bit about me... I love most anything active. Most all sports in general are awesome. I especially like football, basketball and soccer. Right now I am attending community college and plan to graduate from there this winter, and plan to go on to physical therapy. I have five siblings, two older brothers and three younger sisters. We love to spend time together playing all kinds of games. We get very competitive.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because through sincere study and prayer I have come to know that the principles taught are true. And they come from Jesus Christ. The lessons that I have been taught have given me a purpose to my life. I now know why I am here, where I am going and where my spirit was before this earth life. I have also come to know that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ we can be forgiven of our sins if we just do what he asks of us and that is to repent. Also through this infinite power of the Atonement anyone can overcome any spiritual weakness in their life and turn it into strength. I know this because it has helped me in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading and studying words of prophets today and a long time ago in the scriptures but not only reading but heeding the counsel that is given to me. I also live my faith by giving meaningful service to those around me whenever I see a need and can help. I also take time each month to visit people from my congregation at home and we help to strengthen each other in the gospel of Christ.
