Hi I'm Joshua

Raised in Utah. Play some ball. I do missionary work sometimes and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Born and raised in the majestic valley of Tooele, Utah. I'm "tall like a crane" and "fly like a penguin." I believe that we will win, pizza is good on any occasion, and I will strike a model face from time to time.

Why I am a Mormon

Since I turned 8 I've been a baptized member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. However, it wasn't until I was a freshman in high school when I decided to actually try and figure out what that meant. I decided to kneel down and pray about the church and ask if it was true. I received a powerful, yet somehow small and gentle answer, that this was the true church which was restored to the earth. Ever since then I've lived my life following the teachings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and know Joseph Smith was His prophet whom Christ Himself restored the Church and Priesthood through. The Book of Mormon is a true book that helps me come closer to Christ every day. Because of this church, and it's teachings, I've truly learned more about my Savior and know that He paid for my sins, died, and was resurrected so I may live with Him one day. There truly is a prophet on this earth today. Because of these things I've come to know I find comfort and happiness every day and really know where I go when I die. How awesome!

How I live my faith

I've been active in this church ever since I found out it was true. I've lead groups of youth at all ages and in college I was able to organize and coordinate athletic activities during the week. I also served a full time mission in New Hampshire and Maine for two years. Mostly, though, I try to smile, care, and serve everyone just like Christ.
