Hi I'm Joshua Wood

I grew up in Riverton, Utah. Im serving a mission to Paris, France. I love Harry Potter. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the oldest of 4 younger sisters. I really love playing soccer, reading, snowboarding, boating, knitting, four square, and meeting people, pokemon, hiking, running, etc. I am a student at Utah State University and plan to be a high school history/french teacher afterwards. I leave for my mission to Paris, France on February 6th and I'm seriously so excited to get out there.

Why I am a Mormon

We believe in personal revelation, that we can talk to our Heavenly Father through sincere prayer and that He can give us direct answers through the Holy Ghost. This is how I know that this church is true. I have read, fasted and prayed, and been told that it is true. I grew up as a member, but everyone comes to the day when they really have to decide for themselves what they believe. I know that this church is true, and that it was restored by Joseph Smith, who was a prophet called of God. I know that he translated the Book Of Mormon, and I know that it is the most true book on this earth and that it truely testifies of Jesus Christ. I know that Jesus Christ is the son of God, and that he suffered the sins of the world and overcame death so that we might live with our Father in Heaven again. I have used his atonement in my life to overcome sin and grow closer to Him and Heavenly Father. I know that Thomas S. Monson has been called by God to guide and direct this church today, and that he truely knows what is best for us. I know that through this gospel we can obtain eternal happiness.

How I live my faith

I currently serve as a Ward Missionary in the Logan YSA 1st ward and I really love it! Service is something I really enjoy. I love going to church and family home evening because my ward is so great. As a ward missionary I get to teach the Gospel Principles class every now and then and I think it's really fun!
