Hi I'm Joshua

"I'm from Virginia. Lived around the world. I'm a Mormon"

About Me

I'm a world traveler. I enjoyed the beauty of Southern France for three years with my family. I later lived in Thailand serving a mission for the church. I love to read, sing, play the piano, and hike. I'm currently studying accounting. I'm fluent in French and Thai. I also can get around in Spanish and Chinese. I've visited many different countries and cultures. I love all of Heavenly Father's children, no matter where they're from. I love working with people from all over the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have a testimony of The Book of Mormon, The Divinity of Jesus Christ, and The Prophet Joseph Smith. I have read and prayed about The Book of Mormon and know through the undeniable power of the Holy Ghost that it is true. I know through that knowledge that Jesus is The Christ. This is also proof that Joseph Smith truly saw God the Father and His Son. I know of these truths individually as well. I know that Jesus is The Christ because of repentance. We all make mistakes in this life, which create feelings of guilt and pain, but as I have experienced I know that we can and will be healed by Him. I have also received a witness from His Spirit that He did reveal Himself along with His Son unto Joseph Smith. This testimony has helped me through the hardest of times and will ever stand because it is not a fabrication of man, but is eternal; for it was obtained from Him who is Eternal. I know that Jesus is the Christ!

How I live my faith

I recently returned from my two year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. While there I answered a prophet's call to share what is most precious to me, the restored gospel, to those in Thailand. Since I've been back I have received the assignment to help organize and direct, in part, this work within the congregation I'm a part of.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Yes. We do. We believe in Him as the Son of God. As The Christ. We believe that He suffered and died for our sins. We believe that He was resurrected and lives today. We believe these things because of the testimony from His Spirit which has testified these things to our heart. This testimony comes from our belief in both The Book of Mormon and The Bible to be the word of God. Show more Show less
