Hi I'm Josh

I follow Christ. I like being happy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a quirky, fun-loving, Mormon with many reasons to be happy. My relationships with my friends and family are something that give my life a sense of fulfillment and for that reason are some of my most precious possessions. I wouldn't be who I am today if it wasn't for those among my associations lifting me and strengthening me in my times of need. Music is something that has always been a passion of mine. I have enjoyed playing baritone saxophone in high school and college ensembles, but find joy in playing ukulele and aspiring to the piano as well. It isn't too uncommon to see me engaged with a fast paced game of ultimate Frisbee or racquetball or doing something that involves being outside and seeing this beautiful world we live in. There is a lot of beauty in the world and it's too easy to pass it by. When we have the right attitude we can see and feel those things that truly matter most.

Why I am a Mormon

I was initially born and raised as a Mormon. As I look back on my life and reflect on what has brought me to this point, I can't help but to be grateful to our Father in heaven for bringing me to where I am now. I am a Mormon because I know that this is Jesus Christ’s church restored in its completeness. From an early age I have been very blessed to be in a home where my parents taught me how to trust in God and to pray. Some of my earliest of memories are of praying with my family and going to church. At home and in Church I learned about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and came to feel that it was true. Becoming converted to the Savior and his gospel has been a life-long process that comes piece by piece. One defining experience that has been instrumental in my personal discipleship was serving a two-year mission for Christ in Spokane Washington. I spent my time during that time away from my family and friends teaching others about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I found that while I was teaching others, that the one really being taught was me. The things I learned have solidified my personal conviction in the mission of the Savior and His church. I know that God loves all his children more than any of us can really know. I also know that Jesus Christ is real and that his sacrifice for us has the potential to change us if we let it. I also know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Days is Christ's church. I'm grateful to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I do my best to share my beliefs with others. I try and serve other people and follow the example of Jesus Christ . I try to trust in God and listen to the promptings that he gives me through the Holy Spirit. I do my best to everyday, do a little more, try a little harder, and be a little better.
