Hi I'm Joshua Neubert

I'm a student. I'm an opera singer, a fly fisher, a skier, a hiker. I serve, read and play sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello there! My name is Josh and I love life. I am a senior at Brigham Young University-Idaho studying Healthcare Administration. My favorite thing to do of all is to spend time getting to know my Savior through prayer, and studying the scriptures. I love anything and everything outdoors. My newest and favorite hobby is fly fishing. I love it. Fishing gives me the time to spend surrounded by God's creations. I love movies! I love music. I love to sing opera and to feed people with music. Music is a most sacred refuge. I am interested in, and play, just about any sport. Life can be hard, but just stick with it, and you'll make it through, it'll be alright.

Why I am a Mormon

It is a place where I can feel like me. I don't feel pressured to be someone by those around me. I just focus on my progression and becoming who the Lord wants me to be. I don't feel judged here. It is an environment of love. Praying to know if this is the right place for you is key. Ask in faith knowing that He will give you the answer you seek. He will answer you.

How I live my faith

Without trials and opposition, there is no progression. This is hard to realize during times of hardship. Living a faith can't be easy. I think that God wants us to be happy. So resolve to be Happy! Do the things you need to do daily, such as prayer and scripture study, to be closer to our Heavenly Father. Taking it day by day is the most important thing that we can do. Serving is the easiest outward expression to show your inner commitment to following Christ.

Can you tell me about Mormon customs: how you dress for church, what holidays you celebrate, etc.?

Joshua Neubert
This is a great question that I am more than willing to answer! Members of the church love to get together and have fun! It's like a great big family gathering. We love celebrating holidays of all sorts. Anything that can be used to strengthen our families, is welcomed. Holidays such as Christmas and Easter are particularly important to us because of what they symbolize, the birth, suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We like to dress our best for Sunday. It is important that you act in reverence and show the spirit that you are willing to learn. We are normal people that do normal things, and we love it!

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Joshua Neubert
I love being able to think about life and everything involved in it, and be reminded of the existence of God. Just walking outside at night and looking up at the stars is sufficient evidence of a God. Sometimes in life our hardships are so much that it is difficult to see that God is involved in our life, but we must remember that He is. I marvel at the progress in life that I have made. He truly blesses us. Show more Show less
