Hi I'm Josh Simonson

I grew up in sandy, UT. i am a eagle scout. I am serving the lord for 2 years in the Florida Tampa Mission and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I like to go fishing, 4-wheeling, camping, snowboarding, and snowmobiling. I also love to do it with my dad. I also like to work on cars. I am planning to become a Diesel Mechanic.

Why I am a Mormon

i have chosen to be a member of his church because i was raised in it. i have always loved his church and his gospel. I have decided to continue following this Gospel because of how much it as blessed my life and how happy it makes me and my family. I know that the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ can bring families closer together and that families can be together forever. I know that the Book of Mormon is true because i have read it and have pondered its teachings and have prayed about it and i have found out that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that it does not replace the bible, but goes hand and hand with it. I know whatever we may be going through that Jesus Christ is always there to comfort us and to be a friend all the time and that he knows what we may be going through. I know that Jesus Christ lives and that he is the Son of God and that the Gospel of Jesus Christ as been restored in its fullness.

How I live my faith

I had a call where i helped plan activities for the youth not only in my ward but also my stake. I love to read the Book of Mormon and the Bible. I Like to show my love for Jesus Christ by serving others and helping them in things they need help in.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Josh Simonson
we perform baptisms for the dead because we are doing it for the death who didn't get a chance to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ. So when they are ready to get baptized we go to the temple and we are baptized in behalf of that person who lived before us. Show more Show less
