Hi I'm Joshua White

I was born and raised in Fresno, California. I like to ride my bike and hang out with my friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old and was born and raised in Fresno, California. My family is made up of a mom and dad, four brothers, one sister, one dog and two cats. I liked to ride my bike to the community college where I took several courses, although I still don't quite know what I want to be when I grow up. There are a lot of activities in the Young Single Adult Ward I attended, and I went there with my friends. I used to work with an office supply shipping company at 3am with some of my brothers. I also liked to play some video games, watch TV, and hang out with my friends. Right now I am serving the people of Montana on a mission, and I enjoy every minute of it!

Why I am a Mormon

I continue to believe in this church because I know that it is true. I know that every principle and ordinance that Christ established has been restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith. The reason I know is because I have prayed about it, tried it, used it and benefited from it. This assurance did not suddenly come all at once, but over time, trying the principles they teach every day. I don't believe in Jesus Christ just because I am Mormon, but I am Mormon because of my belief in Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying every day to live my beliefs. I try to internalize the principles I learn and turn it into behavior. I obey the Commandments, and I know that they don't hinder my freedom, but expand it and allow me to become much happier. I am trying to share the things I believe with those I meet on my mission.
