Hi I'm Joe Maloney

I grew up in Pittsburgh I have two adorable cats. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student and full time restuarant worker. I enjoy gardening and skateboarding. I have two beautiful cats.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. I was active growing up but fell away for a few years in my late teenage years. I decided to start attending church after I felt like something was not right or was missing from my life and I was just very unhappy. I decided to read The Book of Mormon again and atttending church and later started to prepare for a mission. Living the Gospel allows me to be the happiest and best version of myself that I am able to be. I know the church is true and The Book of Mormon as well as The Bible to be the word of God.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be an example for others by following the teachings of the church. I am courteous to my fellow employees, aquantences, and strangers. I occasionally teach a lesson at church. I am sometimes afforded the oppurtunity to cook for church events or for friends, it is something that I enjoy doing.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Joe Maloney
It is not required for all members to serve missions. However it is encouraged and many young people and senior couples accept the invitation to serve. Show more Show less
