Hi I'm Joseph

I grew up on the beautiful white sandy beaches of Naples Florida...Now serving a Mission in The Idaho Twin Falls Mission!

About Me

Hi my name is Joseph I grew up in Naples Florida that's off the Gulf of Mexico! As a family we spend a lot of time at the beach cause your not gonna not when it's pretty much at your door step! Growing up in Florida we had about 12 other in my high school who were LDS. Moving to Utah I got to see the other side of Mormon culture and I have to say I do like it. While our move to Utah was unexpected and sad that we had to leave a paradise I was able to have more friends of my faith to help and strengthen my testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel. Seminary took on a whole new meaning as we had more people for input to share experiences of faith. I enjoy being a member of this Church and love the opportunity to be serving a mission and sharing those same values and teaching I received as a youth growing up in the church! Serving in Idaho I'm learned to love the people, the culture and have learned more about Cows than ever before! But I love my mission it has taught me a lot about myself ;as I am able to share with other that Our Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ have a plan for us! That each of us is a child of God and that we are loved by Him. He has again extended his hand to his children through prophet like of old in these days.

Why I am a Mormon

My Grandparents got the opportunity to hear the Gospel in our small town of Orange Walk, Belize in Central America. The missionaries then knocked on their door and shared with them that truth was once again restored through a prophet of God and that Christ church was once again upon the earth. I'm Grateful that my dad continued in the faith and raised me in this wonderful Gospel. Many blessing have come through membership in the church. There a certain point that a lot of members in the church reach to when they have to know if these things are true and that came for me in my teenage years when I was looking to see if this religion was for me. The Book of Mormon for one has helped me obtain a testimony of the church. And when I came to this knowledge I also came to the knowledge that Joseph Smith had to be a prophet of God in order to translate the Book of Mormon, And that today to church of Jesus Christ has been restored here on Earth with all keys and authority!

How I live my faith

Living Utah there is a lot of Mormon things to do! But going to Seminary and church has really helped me obtain faith in The Lord Jesus Christ. Now serving as a missionary for The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints all those things that I learned as a youth and going through primary and the young Men program have helped me live my faith by applying and doing the things I was taught. Learning and obtaining high standards have brought much joy and happiness to my live. I like to have fun and enjoy myself. I like movies that make me laugh (appropriate lol)and wholesome activities like running,dancing, SWIMMING, and being with my family. Faith is an action word. Not only by believing they things I was taught but by applying them in everyday life. Service to our fellow man, Doing whats right when no one is watching. In a changing world we needed to remain true and steadfast in our beliefs. That one is never placed in a situation that where have not already decided how to act.
