Hi I'm Joseph David Kleinman

I was born and raised in Camp Verde Arizona, I am 18, I am a Electrician, I love to go 4-wheeling in my Jeep, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Have you ever had too much to do and not enough time to do it? Welcome to my life. Shortly after graduating high school at the young age of 17 I jumped straight into the working class. A year later at the age of 18 I am working over-time in my father’s Electrical business as one of the two employees. After putting in 10-12 hours a day, I further my education with a Math 092 and English 101 class at the local college. These two classes basically take up the rest of my day. Even though my life is full of responsibilities, I enjoy spending time with my family. As a family we love to go camping up in the pines. When we are up there, we fill our day with activities like quad riding, shooting, playing volleyball, enjoying my moms great cooking and just talking around the camp fire. I have four siblings, making me the middle child, and we keep my mom and dad on their toes. My family has helped me in many of my accomplishments. They were great supports while I worked towards my Eagle Scout award, graduating high school with honors and rebuilding my 89 Jeep Wrangler which I love to take rock climbing. I also love singing in choirs, acting in plays and doing musicals. But, greater then all these is my love for the gospel. My family is the only thing that can compare in importance to me. My goals are to own multiple businesses in diverse areas and invest in real estate. I am also working on following the footsteps of my father and two older brothers by serving a full time mission.=)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon simply because it makes me happy. I have tried the worlds way, and though it was exciting at times, it left me miserable and alone. So I decided to repent, which was hard by the way, and devote my time and talents to serving the Lord. Making that personal decision to do the Lord's will, makes choosing the right so much easier to do, because you are using that God given right of agency. I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon because I have read it and prayed to know of its truthfulness. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior who atoned for my sins and is always there to help me back onto the path. I know that President Monson is the prophet of our day who tells us God's will. I know that there is a life after this one, and that if we are faithful to the Lord, our joy will become complete know and in the eternities. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

In my ward I have the opportunity to teach the young men from the age 12-18. I am able to go to the Lord in humble prayer and ask him what his will is in teaching these young men. I also help prepare the Sacrament on Sundays. But, the way I love to live my faith is by following the Saviors example of service. To help the widows out with their yards, to help a young mother carry groceries out to the car, and to serve whenever called upon. The church has installed this principle deep within my soul, by giving me opportunities to serve. We are a church of service because we want to be good Christians and follow the Savior.
