Hi I'm Josh

I Grew up in Slat Lake City, Utah. I love camping and all things outdoors, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well I am a sucker for the outdoors. If I could never be inside again I would die happy. I love to go camping and do something that is called "Jeeping". You buy a Jeep, upgrade it and then go anywhere you want. I also just started Bouldering. It is basically rock climbing without any ropes. It is such a rush, and of course I am afraid of heights. River rafting, Biking, Hiking, Swimming, you name it I am there. I am currently serving an LDS Mission in Texas, and loving it. It is awesome to see how the Gospel of Jesus Christ can really affect people’s lives and change them for the better. I plan to go to school when I return home to study Architecture. That is basically Josh in a nutshell..

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up being a Mormon, but there comes a point in everyones life when they have to decide for themselves whaat they are going to do and what they are going to believe. I was a bit of a late bloomer. I didnt really know what i belived or what I was going to do until I turned 23. I really ran away from the Idea of sacrificing anything for the lord. I was affraid that I would have to change. Then I read a scripture that said basically "I am nothing without God" I then realized that through Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father I can be about a billion times better than anything I could be on my own. So knowing this I knew that I had to change. Sence then, I have grown so much words can not tell. I am now on a mission spreading the things I know to be true so that everyone can be as happy as I am. I have a very firm testimony in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I know that the teachings of the church are true and that you can come to know Christ and what he wants for us better than any other church on the earth. I know that everyone in the world can come to know this and have this happiness if they only have a desire and really search for what God wants. These things I know and want everyone else to know.

How I live my faith

Well at the moment it is quit easy to live my faith. I am currently serving and a missionary for the church so I live breath and eat the gospel. I am serving in the Texas Lubbock Mission and I get to help others realize thier full potential through the teachings of Jesus Christ. Before my mission I would help my congregation plan activities on monday nights. It was an activity to help us build unity in the congregation and learn more about our savior Jesus Christ. I love living my faith and helping others to do the same.
