Hi I'm Joshua Crapo

I'm a High school graduate, I'm a music lover, I love mexican food, actually just food in general, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! my name is Joshua. I am 20 years old and I'm a graduate from Red Mountain high school. I love to play sports, listen to music, and sing (although, I'm not very good). I'm just a normal guy. I have an e-mail account, a Facebook account, a cell phone, an I-Pod ect. I have three older brothers and two new sisters-in-law. My dad use to be the bishop of my ward, and he used to travel a lot so he was really busy and I didn't get to talk to him much. but now he is home a lot more and I love spending time with him. I have a wonderful family that is such a blessing to my life. I love my life and I am so blessed to be so fortunate. Everybody goes through good and bad times, even people who seem to "have it all". I always try and focus on the good, and forget the bad. Currentlly I am serving as a full time missionary in the Japan Kobe Mission. Throughout my mission I have come to love learning languags. I was born in The United States so I grew up speaking English, I took spanish in Highschool and study it from time to time, and have been learning Japanese for the past 2 years as a missionary in Kobe Japan. I hope to become fluent in these 3 languages and hopefully 2 more. Maybe Chinese and sign language. I love the Japanese people and the Japanese culture. I am so blessed to be called to serve here and to be blessed with so many blessings from our Heavenly Father. I serve faithfully everyday in order to become like my savior Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both born Mormon and I was baptized into the church at eight years old. However, I'm not Mormon because my parents forced me to be. I am Mormon because I want to be, because I choose to be. I feel so much more happy and at peace when i follow Christ. I love the kindness and love of the members of the LDS Church. I know that Christ loves all his children and that he knows each one personally and wants us all to be save and return to live with him again. The spirit has testified of these trues to me many times and I want to testify and share his love with all of his children because I love all of them.

How I live my faith

Everyday of my life I live in a way I can be proud of. I know that god loves me no mater what and when I live richiously he blesses me with his holy spirit. We all make mistakes but i try as hard as i can to live worthily to use his holy priesthood. I try as often as i can remember to think of what Christ would do if he was faced with the choices i have to make and let that guide my actions.
