Hi I'm Josh Ostler

I have a beautiful wife and 2 kids. I'm a firefighter by day and longboard manufacturer by night. I love life and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for 6 years and have 2 crazy kids. I spend most of my time working three jobs, trying to keep the wife at home. Im a figherfighter, woodworker (I build solid wood frame beach cruisers), and I started my own company building custom longboards. I have always liked working with my hands whether its working on old cars, working with wood, or working and molding stuff out of fiberglass. I love all my jobs but what I love even more is spending time with my family and friends. When we get together we play sports, hike, go four wheeling, play games, watch movies, and have a good time! I also like to travel and served a mission in Sydney Australia. A place I highley recommend visiting if you ever have the chance. Its unbelievable in every way!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the same church Christ established when he walked the earth in the meridian of time. I also believe that all the saving ordinances and the priestood authority to perform those ordinances, are found in this Church. I have talked to thousands of people about religion, taken world religion classes and have read many books on different religions and the more I study other faiths the stronger my testimony becomes in my faith. I love the Lord and Savior of the world, Jesus Christ, and want to follow Him. Through the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints, I have that oppurtunity because its Christ's true gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by enjoying life, and by following Jesus Christ and His perfect example.
