Hi I'm Joseph McKeon

I am a native Californian, I love cereal, Hanging out with my buddies, and having a good time. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am a proud member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am a full- time missionary in the Iowa Des Moines mission and love it. I have had some amazing times out here. I like football, basketball, golf, tennis, archery, being extreme, dancing with wolves, screwing around, and wrestling gators. I am not a dad yet but one day I will be and my kids will be super RAD. I don't go to college as of right now but one day I will. I aspire to play the harmonica and be good at it one day. I love listening to music! Any kind. My favorite actor would probably have to be Owen Wilson because he is super inspirational and throws 7 different kinds of smoke. I love my family and would give anything for them! I am grateful for my parents, and sisters, along with their families, I am also grateful for my five older brothers and their families, and I love my little brother and am grateful for all he has done for me. i love my friends as well. I will for ever be grateful for how my parents raised me, emphasizing the importance of family relationships. "I'm just living life to the fullest"-Owen Wilson (you me and dupree)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saint because it is amazing! i love all the blessing i have seen in my life that result from being a member of the church, plus its true! I am grateful for Joseph Smith and how willing he was to restore this true Gospel to the Earth. I am also grateful for my Savior, Jesus Christ. I am grateful for the sacrifice he made for me. I am a member because of my testimony, and because in a world like this there can be so many things going wrong, but i can always look back to the church and know that Christ is my foundation, and that is right. I am a member because the church understands the importance of having a family. I love my family, and i cant wait to have a wife and children of my own one day so that I can raise them in this Gospel helping them to recognize the happiness that will be present in my home. I believe all of us our children of our Heavenly Father and that is why I am serving a mission, so i can give those who haven't had the opportunity to hear this wonderful message, that chance.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving. Ever since i was in the Young Men's Program during my youth i have loved service projects. Just getting out and taking advantage of the opportunity to serve any body who needs help. I love my Faith by sacrificing two years to come out and serve a mission. It has been a wonderful opportunity and blessing in my life.
