Hi I'm Josh

I play soccer. I snowboard. I like to drive. And, I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love the winter, and that includes snowboarding and driving around in the snow. I play soccer, and have been since I was six. I'm planning on going to college at BYU, and studying accounting and economics. I've worked at a daycare for four years, and I love kids. I'm now serving a mission, I'm in the MTC right now. But I'm so excited to go out to Texas and share this awesome gospel!

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a Mormon. This is the gospel of love, and I feel it everyday. I love how we can be forgiven of our sins as well. I, like many others, have definitely had some problems with sinning. But as soon as you open yourself up and begin to repentance process, you start feeling that love again and you feel closer to your Heavenly Father. I love the feelings I have when I'm reading the Book of Mormon, so I continue to read it as much as I can. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet, and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and true.

How I live my faith

I go to my church meetings every week. My favorite is Sunday school because you get to learn more and more about this gospel. I go to our young single adult activities when i'm not working. I go on out with the missionaries whenever I can, so that I have opportunities to teach the gospel to those that don't know it too well. And I'm going to serve a mission for two years.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It has writings from the ancient prophets in the Americas about the coming of Christ, and the teachings of Christ. The Book of Mormon teaches us each our purpose for being here on this earth, and gives us specific instructions on how we can return to live with our Heavenly Father after death. Those who pray with sincere intent will know with a doubt of the truthfulness of it's doctrine, and also that the true church has been restored to the earth in these latter days through the Prophet Joseph Smith. Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon from the golden plates given to him from the ancient prophet Moroni. Show more Show less
