Hi I'm Joe Murray

I am from a little town in Idaho. I love the outdoors. I have a large family and I love spending time with them. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am from a small town in Saint Anthony. I am a country boy. I like to go camping and fishing. I love to cook. It is one of my hobbies. I love to listen to basically any type of music. I absolutely love my family. I come from a "big" family. I am number 8 of 12 kids. My family means so much to me. They have taught me to love other people. My parents play one of the biggest roles in my life. I am pretty sure I would not be the man I am if it were not for them.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints my whole life. I was raised in a home with active parents that have always been a great example of faith and love for Jesus Christ and His gospel. I always knew the church was true growing up, but like everyone needs to, I had to find out for myself that it was true. I did that through reading the Book of Mormon prayerfully. At the end of finishing the book, I prayed to know it was true. I felt a warm feeling in my heart that it was, and realized that throughout the entire time that I was reading it, the Spirit had been testifying to me that it was true. Every day that I would read out of it I would find something that would help me in my life at that time. I love the Book of Mormon, it guides me everyday of my life. I know that we have a loving Heavenly Father who loves each and everyone of us. I am thankful for all that He has done in my life to bless me. I know that I would be lost without him. The biggest reason I am a Mormon is because of all the many blessings in which I have recieved from following God and obeying His commandments. I love the Gospel and am very grateful for the gift of repentance. I know that we can be clean, if we will, but go to Him.

How I live my faith

I believe that I live my faith everyday, by my decisions. I also believe the best way I can live my faith my faith is by the example I am to others. I am also currently serving my Savior as a missionary in the Texas Mcallen Mission. As a missionary I teach others and invite them to come utno Christ. I love what I do everyday to help others to come unto Christ. I read from the scriptures daily to help me come closer to God.
