Hi I'm Josh

I grew up in Layton Utah. I go to Utah State University. I am a friend. I am a witness of Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My favorite thing to do is to help people. I love it and I love hanging out and doing fun stuff with my friends! I love playing sports! My favorite sport is football! I played middle line backer in High School and loved it! I also love to play basketball! There isn't much better then playing sports till you can't walk anymore! Music is also a huge part of my life! I love listening to music!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have come to know for myself that The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the restored church of the Lord Jesus Christ in these days. I have come to know that independant of any other person by prayer. I have read the Book of Mormon and prayed to God to know if it is true. I have received a witness from Him that it is His word and that Joseph Smith was His Prophet and that this is His Church on the earth today. I have tested it again and again and every time I get an answer that I am right. Also, as I have acted on those answers I have felt His love in my life and His hand leading me which also witnesses to me that it is true! I know that God lives! I know that He loves us and would not leave us alone! I know that you can find out for yourself that this is true. Read from the Book of Mormon, ponder in your heart what you feel while reading, and then ask your Heavenly Father if it is true. I promise you that He will answer. He loves you and will not leave you in the dark. Try it so that you can know independant of anyone else.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to be an example of Jesus Christ in everything I do. When we make the covenant with God to be baptized into His church we promise to be willing to take upon us the name of Christ, to always remember Him, and to keep His commandments which He has given us. That is what we promise to do in order to be a member of His church. That is quite a challenge in the world today with so much going on but I am happy to do it. That is why we, as mormons, do all that we do! That is why we try to help and serve other people. That is why we try and share His gospel. That is what I am doing now. I am currently a full-time missionary for The Church. That means that I leave my family, my friends, school, work, and anything that is distrating from my purpose and go out to teach people of Jesus Christ and invite them to come unto Him. That is how I live my faith. By devoting all of my time for these two years to do as Christ would do if He was here. And after the mission I will not be done. This is a life-long persuit. I will continue to do all that Christ asks of me for the remainder of my life. And I love it! This is the secret to happiness! I have never been so happy as when I am serving my Savior and my God!
