Hi I'm Josh Thorn

I was born in California and then moved to Park City. I play hard. I sleep hard. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

During high school, i was in band, dance club, ran track and cross country, played lacrosse, and read a lot of books. I love being outside and seeing the beauty that God has created for me. There are few things better than standing on top of a mountain in the middle of winter with the white snow sparkling all around, or swimming in a lake and looking around and wondering how it came to be. I find God in everything because He created it. The person I am today is because God, my Heavenly Father, loves me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, becuase it gives me hope and peace in this very troubled world. I know that it is through Jesus Christ that we can have hope for a better life. When I feel like no one is there for me, I know that I can always turn to Him, and He will help lift me back up. Through His Atonment, my sins can be forgiven. It is through His love that I am able to be truly happy, not a happiness that is just for today, but a happiness that will last throught my entire existence. Through His love that I can have eternal happiness with my family. I know that He stands outside our door, and knocks. We only need to open our door, and let Him in.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as Missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Each day, I devote all of my time and talents, to help bring people unto Christ. I love sharing the Love of Christ with those around me. Because He loves me, I know He loves all of us, and that is the message I share. I have also been playing the piano for my local congregation for almost 10 years now. I've been a part of so many service projects that I've lost count... Through service I have been able to learn to love other people and treat them as Christ would if He were here. My Faith is that I need to constantly be improving myself. It is an all day, everyday process that sometimes gets tiring, but I keep going because I know it is true. I have to pray to my God everyday for support. I have to read the holy scriptures so that the Holy Spirit can carry me throughout my day. My Faith is who I am, and it is in every part of my life.

What is faith?

Josh Thorn
Faith is a belief in things that are not seen, but are true. We are to have in Jesus Christ, our Savior. We need to trust in him, and believe that what He taught is truth. When we have Faith in Jesus Christ, we act in accordence to His teachings. We believe that He really was who He claimed to be. We believe that it is only through Him that we can be saved.
