Hi I'm Josh

I grew up in Utah, went to Paris, France on my mission, and I loved it! I love the outdoors and my family. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love the outdoors and playing sports, I work at a plant nursery called Glover. I love nature and the feel of the forest and being outside. My favorite sports are football and lacrosse I played both throughout my younger years and high school. I love to smile and to make people laugh. I love being spontaneous and just being crazy.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up with my parents as part of the church so I have always been a part of the LDS church. There was a time in high school, my senior year, where I questioned the church and my beliefs in it. I started to fall away and make some mistakes. But I was converted back when I was called up by my stake president for a meeting. Upon walking into the meeting I was skeptical and almost to the point of anger, because I didn't know why I was there I thought I could be doing something much better somewhere else. When I sat down in the chair opposite him we just talked, something that threw me for a loop, I didn't expect for us to just talk I thought he was going to rip on me for starting to fall away, but he didn't we just talked about life and things that were going on and how I felt. Near the end of my visit with him he asked if he could read a couple of scriptures to me I said that was ok and he did. I don't quite remember the actual scriptures he read but it was his testimony to me that hit me hard. He talked to me with such caring and love and such a testimony of the church and the scriptures and their truth that I couldn't help but feel the presence of the Holy Ghost. I walked out of his office knowing that this church was real that I needed to go a mission and spread this gospel and I needed to fix my life so I could.

How I live my faith

I read the scriptures and pray each day, I know that God wants to hear from us and so I pray to Him and tell Him about my day. I served a mission in Paris, France to serve my God and His children.
