Hi I'm Joshua

I grew up in Washington state. I'm a comedian living in Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm living in Utah at the moment, but I'm trying to change that. I'm working on moving back to Washington. I love the rain and the Ocean. Being a comedian has given me a new perspective on my life. For a long time I was lost and always wondered why things happened to me. Kept asking myself, "Why me?" Finding the silver lining for me usually involves thinking of the punch line and learning to laugh about everything... well most things...

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it makes sense. For along time I was torn in the arguments between science and religion. In my studies I started to ask myself, "Why can't both exist in harmony?" I believe because I see the union between the two here. I have a testimony of the truthfulness of this gospel, and I have felt the comfort that comes from it.

How I live my faith

With my calling I get the opportunity to share my testimony all the time. I haven't always been the best person, but I try, and I do my best to make up for my short comings. The places I choose to be for work aren't always the most spiritually inviting and it's in those times that I've found a quick prayer is the best to stay strong.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

When a marriage, or sealing, occurs in the temple, and when the couple strives to live the commandments of God, they will be together for time and all eternity. I remember a decision I was involved in with a girl. She was thinking about getting married to someone outside of the temple. She expressed her feeling that it was "extremely romantic to tell someone that you would give up eternity to live with them in this life, till death." I express my views by saying, "How much more romantic would it be to want to spend eternity with that person." Someday I will find someone to take to the temple with me and I know that when I do that, our relationship will not end with this life. That will be what fairy tails should be written about.
