Hi I'm Joshua J.A. Perea

I was born in mexico, all my sibilings are musicians, i love music (classic rock as my top 1). I'm a mormon

About Me

i was borm and raised in Mexico from what some would consider a large family (mom,dad and 7 children) i'm number 6 of 7. never done anything great or amazing. i'm just a normal person. i enjoy hanging out with friends, serving others, and i love music. i come from a family of musicians, we all play at least one instrument and we all sing, play every type of music but my main hit is classic rock, i just love listen to some of the great legends of rock, don't really like modern music, as a matter of fact, i wish i was born around 60's or so. i play the drumms. i love joking around talking to random people in the streets. not much to say about me, love classic music too, reading and writting are some of my other favorit hobbies and of course, singing too. love any type of arts, but my main is music.

Why I am a Mormon

as a little kid growing in the church, i remember my self praying and asking God if i needed to be baptized. i remember feeling a warm embrassing feeling in my heart which caused me to shed tears of happiness. i decided to be baptized in the church. however,throughout my youth years i experienced confussion and great doubt concerning the existence of God. i was born and raised in the church,but as my highschool years started i began to feel unsecure about the principles my parents and my church leaders had taught me so far. i was also in a rebellious face of my teenagehood, and it was hard for me to stay focused on spiritual, or either school stuff, however, i felt the great need to find out for my self if what i whether church or science was right. as i studyed the subjetc as deeply as i could, finally came to the determination that if there was a God, and if was as loving, merciful and powerful as people said, the He would allow me to know of his existence. before a trip planned for the youth in my home congregation, i knelt down at my bedside and started to literally cry out my soul to God. after a while, without evident answer, i kept getting ready for the trip. as we arrived to the meeting place, one of our leaders 9what we would call the stake president) stood on the pulpit and began to talk to us. i was sort of distracted, in fact,quiet sad and disappointed, i felt without a real purpose to be there that evening at that meeting. as i was deeply engaged in these depressing thinking, the leader read a scripture found in the Book of Mormon, which got my attention like if someone was shaking me or yelling at me. this is the scripture he read; "Belive in God; believe that He is, and that he created all things, both in heaven and in earth; believe that he has all wisdom, and all power, both in heaven and in earth; believe that man doth not comprehend all things which the Lord can comprehend." the same warm embrassing feeling filled my soul. now i know the truth

How I live my faith
