Hi I'm Joshua

I am a classical guitar performance major who loves animals and I'm a Mormon

About Me

Well I have found joy in performing classical guitar and found that it have really come to soothe my soul. When I was only 9 years old, my father had passes away and I thought to myself, why would God take away the only support that a family had and make them suffer? After he had passed I lived a life in poverty not knowing when my next meal would come or where will be the next night that I would get a good nights sleep. My mother hadn't work since I was born and didn't have the skills to get a job to help support us. she was a high school drop out that had to take care of 6 children on her own. I found that even though life was hard growing up, I know that I can do better for myself and improve my life for my future family. I knew exactly what needed to be done and I am glad that I have taken that first step to improve my life and the lives of those that I come in contact with.

Why I am a Mormon

So when my father had passed I decided that God didn't exist because he wouldn't make such a large family suffer. my life was hard and If there was a god then why would he make my life harder? well When I turned 14 I found comfort in music. I helped me cope and overcome any troubles that I was experiencing. I love playing classical guitar and it comforts me in every way possible. So when I met missionaries the helped me to understand through music how Heavenly Father speaks to us through the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost comforts me just as music does and as I ask questions like Why am I on the Earth and if the Book of Mormon is true I get that same feeling that I get when I pick up the guitar and play it. I know that if I live and do what God commands then one day I will be able to see my father one day and be able to thank him for all his support that he has given me even after death. I know that I will have my Family forever and that is why I am a mormon

How I live my faith

Right now I'm serving a full time mission in the Washington Spokane mission trying to bring others the the happiness and comfort that I have found while learning and progressing in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am here to help people have that wonderful connection with Heavenly Father so that they can ask Him any question that they want and know how to receive and recognize the answer that Heavenly Father gives to them. With continual scripture study and prayer I have been able to find answers to the questions that soul hungers for. Although life isn't easy, nor was it meant to be, through the atonement of our Lord and Savior, we have the opportunity to better our lives with his help which he freely gives to all those that have faith in him and who ask.
