Hi I'm Josie

I'm a wife, I'm a mom, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being a mom to two crazy girls. I love being a wife to an avid basketball player, bicyclist, and fisherman (to name a few). I love to dream of far away places we'll one day travel to. I love our crazy dog. I love finding and trying new recipes. I love to be fit and strong, but I also love chocolate : ) I love crafting and decorating. I love organization. I love living in Washington. Someday I hope to go back to school to be a dental hygenist, and I hope to do something crazy like run a marathon, go skydiving, or climb Mt. Rainier.

Why I am a Mormon

I KNOW that God lives. I KNOW His son Jesus Christ lives. I KNOW they know me and my heart. I KNOW they created this earth and all good and beautiful things in it. I KNOW that because of God's plan, and because of Christ's atonement, there is life after death, and our families can be together FOREVER. I KNOW the gift of Holy Ghost is real. I feel it's influence, and know it is there to comfort, guide, and protect me--as long as I am worthy of it. I KNOW the temple is a holy place. There is a power and a peace there that is unlike anywhere else on Earth. I KNOW the power of the priesthood is real. I have felt it in my life. It seals, it blesses, it heals, it strengthens, it guides, it comforts. I KNOW Thomas S. Monson is a true and living prophet. I know he and the quorum of the 12 apostles are called of God. I know they hold the priesthood keys and have direct communication with God. I KNOW life is hard. I KNOW mistakes are made. I KNOW repentance is key to our salvation. I KNOW there is hope for everyone. I KNOW being a wife and mother is not easy, but I wouldn't trade it for ANYTHING. I KNOW I am a daughter of God--created in His image. I KNOW I am of worth, and that I am loved beyond my imagination. I KNOW I am a spirit being at the beginning of an eternal journey. I KNOW the things that I KNOW because I am a Mormon. And that is WHY I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Having a close relationship with my Father in Heaven requires me to be consistently moving in the right direction. By doing my best daily to remember I am a daughter of God, and to show it in all that I say and do is my goal. Serving others in church callings and showing Christlike love to everyone I meet is just the beginning of how I can live my faith.
