Hi I'm Joe Perkins

I Live in Arizona and have for my entire life, and i love my savior Jesus Christ! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm a college student right now studding my generals so that i can get my degree to go into either law enforcement or into pharmacology. I am very active i love to play sports. I love snowboarding, I love going out and getting in the snow on my board! I love to interact with my friends and family they are very important to me and help me through allot! Most important I love my Savior Jesus Christ and his gospel!

Why I am a Mormon

Im a Mormon because of the joy that it brings into my life and the happiness and understanding! I didn't always know what i know today! i grew up in the church but that doesn't mean that i believed everything! I had to find out for myself if the things that were being taught were actually true or not! in this church when you turn the age of 19 you are asked to take two years of your life and time in preaching the gospel through out the world and as I turned 19 I learned that i didn't know if the church or the teachings were true like everyone had always told me! They would always tell me to read the Book of Mormon and then pray about it. I had never in my life read the Book of Mormon and i decided that I couldn't go and teach people through out the world about my beliefs if I myself didn't even know if they were true! So I started to read the Book of Mormon like the members of the church had always told me to. So having faith I started to read, I read them for about a week and then got lazy and didn't read them for about two weeks and I noticed that something was missing and I didn't know what it was? Then I had a feeling that it was the lack of reading the scriptures so I started to read them again and i had an awesome experience that will be forever a changing point in my life! As i read I didn't want to put the book down and i noticed that i was still tempted will all kinds of temptations just like we all are but i had no more desire to act upon those temptations! So i knew from that time that the book was true and along with everything else in the gospel and it has made my life truly happy and such a joy!

How I live my faith

I live my Faith By faithfully living and keeping the commandments. I do my best to obey with exactness not because someone has told me to but because i want to obey so that i can get blessing from my father in heaven! I served a full time mission in Johannesburg South Africa for two years! I now have callings in the church as a Sunday school teacher. I also try my best to serve all those who stand in need of service!
