Hi I'm Josh Forsgren

I love seeing the world. I love basketball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the oldest of four boys with no sisters. I've traveld to many countries as a Jr American Ambassador and have been a volunteer English teacher in China for half a year. Sports are a joy for me with my favorites being basketball and MMA. I'm an Eagle scout thanks to the support of my mother haha. I play the guitar and have been in the theater arts for a long time. I'm currently serving a mission in Lubbock, Texas Spanish speaking. I plan on going to school to be a psychologist.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church but my parents were very good about not forcing things on me. So in my wordly travels I visited many churches and temples of other religions and listened to what they had to say. Over the span of my teen years and hearing what other religions preached my testimony of the truthfulness of this Church grew. I decided on my own that this is the true and only Church of Jesus Christ and I couldn't be happier. It has blessed me, my family members, and my friends as I've witnessed it touch those around me. God shows his love for us through the teachings and blessings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

Through out my life I have attended Church and Church activities. They have always been fun, spiritual, and uplifting. I have taught sunday school classes to 8 year olds and 11 year olds and I loved it. I have been a leader for 12-16 year old boys.. My parents have always had an extremely positive influence in my life; from supporting my in my passions, being examples of a successful and happy marriage, to giving me direction in how to live. They have always been faithful to this Church and it shows in their actions and overall loving personalities.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Josh Forsgren
Absolutely! The Bible contains words of the ancient prophets and the earthly ministries of Christ. We study the Bible dilligently along with the Book of Mormon. In fact, the Bible and Book of Mormon go hand in hand and prove each other correct. That's one of the amazing beauties of the Bible. i love the Bible and use it all the time in lessons and anyone who says otherwise is misunderstood. Show more Show less
