Hi I'm JOSH

I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

About Me

I have two young children, and boy and a girl. I have been married for nearly ten years. I work hard to support my family. I went to college and I now work in the construction trades.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a "Mormon" because I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We have a volume of scripture called The Book of Mormon, which is another testament of Jesus Christ. The term Mormon is taken from these scriptures and used to label members of Christ's church. Mormon is the name of an ancient prophet that recorded scripture in the Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday in the way that I raise my kids and live my life. I live it by praying daily as I begin each day. I live it through study and by reading the scriptures so that I understand God's will. I live my faith by going to church every Sunday, and using Sunday which is the Lord's day to rest from the world for a day. We do not watch TV or movies on Sunday so that my kids will understand that it is a special day. I live my faith by trying to follow Christ's example. I use clean language and do not take the Lord's name in vain. I help those in need and serve those who cannot help themselves. I know that I can be an answer to someones prayer who petitions God for help. I live my faith by honoring marital vows. I am faithful to my wife. I avoid pornography and treat women with respect. I strive to be a good husband, and plan on being married forever. I live my life the best that I know how. I know that I am successful in living my faith because I am happy. My family is happy too. Our family relationships are strong because they are centered around Christ. People know that I am different because of the way I live. They see that I am happy and have a positive attitude. Knowing there is more to life than the day to day hustle and bustle has given me a better understanding of my purpose on this earth.
