Hi I'm Joe Montoya

I'm an artist, a college student, a member missionary, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love the gospel, and I love life. I think we are so lucky to be here to learn and grow. I haven't always known this church was true. But I do now. And I know the gospel of Jesus Christ is the way to true happiness in this life. It makes so much sense, and is so good. I love that the family is central to God's plan. My family is so important to me. I want to be with them forever.

Why I am a Mormon

As long as I can remember I've been looking for peace. Since I was little I have looked for things that make me happier. As I've searched, in the past I've lost track of which messages come from the world, and which come from God. I have learned that there are things in this world that are bad. They are often disguised as good and much of the world embraces them. And because of that, I am so thankful for revelation, so we can learn directly from God, and that Christ died for my sins so that I don't have to. As I have learned and progressed, I've come to know that all we have to do is stick to the light, and the things that bring true, lasting joy and peace, and leave behind the world, and rely on the Atonement, and life will be bliss.

How I live my faith

I believe that every lesson God teaches us in this life is for our profit, and for us to then go and teach others. Along with that, while I served a full time mission in the Canada Winnipeg Mission, I learned that I love to serve people, and I'm most happy when I am helping others. I know as I go and do my best to serve others, and help them learn the important lessons that make life better, and learn from them, that I bear my testimony and live my faith. I also live my faith by getting back up when I fall down, exercising faith in Christ and His atonement, figuring out how I can be better, and moving on with joy and peace.
