Hi I'm Joslyn Joan

I'm a Horticulturist. A "hold the veggies, please pass the sugar" kind of girl. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I lived my childhood and teenage years in a 3 bedroom 1 bath house with six of my favorite people - my family. It was there that I built a foundation to my values and beliefs; learned from my parents and church leaders. I left the cocoon to attend college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. Four years later, I graduated with a Bachelor's in Horticulture, emphasis in Production. From there I made the giant leap over state line to Washington. "I Sing in the Rain" here in the Northwest and LOVE it! When I am not singing in the streets, I sing to my plants at work. I spend my days working hard in my greenhouses, training for the next big race, laughing with by beautiful roommates, and laboring at finding the world's best pizza slice (it's a trying pursuit, but someone has to do it).

Why I am a Mormon

Matthew 7:16-20 "...By their fruits ye shall know them..." I was raised in a devout LDS home where my parents were continuously striving to center Christ in their lives and in the lives of their children. So I was taught from an early age the teachings of Christ from the Bible and Book of Mormon. It was a life of comfort. My faith in the Savior initially stemmed from my parents' faith, and I lived my life according to the education given me. As I walked down the halls of my middle and high schools, I quickly found that life got more and more confusing and chaotic the more and more I drifted away from the priciples and doctrine I had been reared in. So much GOOD comes from living a life parallel to God's command. "A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit." I can see the good in my life from living this gospel. I feel so blessed to know it.

How I live my faith

...with babysteps. Each day I try a little harder to love my neighbor. I try a little harder to serve God's children.
