Hi I'm Josh

I'm from Arizona. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been happily married to my best friend for two and a half years. I enjoy being creative and learning. I love new ideas and seeing people succeed. Sports are a passion for me, especially basketball. Nothing is more thrilling to me than spending time in the outdoors and exploring nature. I graduated college with a degree in business with an emphasis in accounting. I am excited about life and I am always looking forward to the future and new adventures.

Why I am a Mormon

I have gained a belief in the Church of Jesus Chris of Latter-day Saints over time. As a young man I saw the differences in the lives of people who live the Gospel, like my parents, and those who did not. I wanted to have the blessings of peace and love that I saw in the lives of those who follow the teachings of the church. As I grew older I accepted the beliefs my parents lived by, and I now see those same blessings in my life. I continue to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ because it brings the spirit of love and joy into my life and the life of my family. Together, my wife and I know that we can have happiness in this life and be together forever in the life to come. I know that we are children of a loving God and have a purpose in our lives.

How I live my faith

I attend church each week. At church my wife and I have the responsibility of helping others learn about genealogy and how to track their family's lineage. I have also been asked to visit some of the members of our church and care for their spiritual and emotional needs. I make monthly visits to the homes of these people. My wife and I pray together each day and read from the scriptures. We find that these activities bring the spirit of God into our lives and help us to feel happier. Service in the church, prayer, and studying the word of God are the activities I participate in to practice my faith and feel the love of God in my life.
