Hi I'm Joseph

I was born in Mexico, and i grew up in Logan Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

First of all i want to say the most interesting thing about me: I love fruit snacks. I think the Lemon ones relate to me the most. I like to eat them all day, anyways... I'm serving a mission in Florida Jacksonville and i want to emphasize the word "serving"...think about it... i want to share what makes me happy in one moment: I like to read while i listen to music, and while i read and listen to music, i love eating the fruit flavored ones (fruit snacks LOL), and while i do this i enjoy sitting out in the rain. Getting drenched from head to toe, looking up at the sky and wondering about so many things in life! I speak very good English and Spanish and I can start a conversation in French! I grew up in Logan Utah in the Snowy valley, I think its the best! Had all my best moments of life over there. The most important things i have in life, and that i wouldn't change for anything are: Heavenly father, Jesus Christ, Holy Ghost, and last but not least My Family. My family is the most treasured thing that i love! Wouldn't change it for anything not even for the flavored ones! I consider i am a very goofy person, i like to laugh a lot, so if you're a dull person who doesn't want to laugh like crazy, consider laughing more.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, i was born in the church. But i think that doesn't make me a true Mormon. I believe a true Mormon is a person who has received an answer for themselves. My parents never made me go to church, they never decided what my religious life was going to be like. i decided it by myself . and i decided it because that's what God wanted from me. And how do i know that's what he wants from me? Because i prayed and asked him if this church was a true church, if this church was really directed by Jesus Christ, if this was really going to make me happy. I read the Book of Mormon, pondered in it, and asked God. And just like he promises in the Book of Mormon, God answers. He gave an answer, he answered through my feelings that this was a true church. I knew that this was really going to make me happy, i just knew it! and i couldn't wait to have a life style guided by my Heavenly Father. I have chosen to be a Mormon, I have chosen this myself, no one else chose it for me! and this is the best decision I've ever taken. i don't regret this decision at all. and i took this path because i can be 100% happy, i can be even more goofy. The gospel makes my life joyful, it makes me yell of happiness! i can feel the love my Heavenly has for me, he is always there, by my side every single day! Helping me out, taking me by the hand and telling me which way to go! And that's all i need. he has given me the most precious things in the world, that i wouldn't trade for anything. MY FAMILY! i have learned so much in my family, i have also grown a lot! Growing up in a family guided directly by Heavenly Father has no price! and that's why I'm a Mormon, because God told me to be a Mormon, that's what he wants from me! And that's why I'm on a mission, to serve just like Jesus served, to serve everyone around me, teach them and show them the great love that heavenly has for them. And i serve with all my Heart, Might, Mind and Strength because i love my Heavenly Father!

How I live my faith

At this moment i have the best calling in my life, at least that's how i consider it, which is most important. I am a Disciple of Jesus Christ! I am a Missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. And I'm serving in Florida Jacksonville for two years. The best two years of my life! I live my Faith or i strive to live it, being a Worthy, Obedient and Powerful Disciple of Jesus Christ, and i will try to be more like my Savior Jesus Christ now and forever. I work all day in the Lords work, i talk with him through prayer all day long, and well... he loves talking to me! Me and him share lots of Secrets! i hope i don't annoy him someday. That's how i live my faith... being happy all day, everyday, and doing what he wants me to do. I do his will, because he knows whats best! I am a child of God and he has sent me here, he has given me an earthly home with parents kind and dear... the most precious words i keep in this goofy heart of mine! I just want to share that this is what i want for the rest of my life: The Gospel Of Jesus Christ! I want to help out as many people as i can, serve them with all of my heart. After that get married and have 12 little ones! and maybe... just maybe i will see then 6 adopted ones! And i want to do all this because, this is how i live my faith, being obedient to Gods commandments!
