Hi I'm Joshua Rogers

I have grown up in up state New York. I love sports and am currently serving a mission. I'm a Mormon and proud of it!

About Me

I enjoy singing at most of the times during the day - not that I am always singing. Writing songs is a way for me to express my feelings and stories. I love playing all types of sports, but my favorite competetive sport to be a part of is swimming. Swimming is a great workout and is also relaxing for me. I am currently serving a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am currently a member of this church because it was the only church that makes me feel the influence of the Spirit and have exceeding joy in my life. I've always been a member of the church, but I have gone to other churches when I invited my friend to come to church. She told me that the only way should would try it out was if I tried her church. It was interesting to not find a strong feeling of belonging. The church has helped me overcome the darkest days of my life. I have sat in a dark pit for up to 2 years and the only chance to get out, I found out, was the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I know the power of Christ's Atonment for all of us and the wonderful feeling of true repentance for I have gone through a lot of horrible things in my life. I know this church is true and the Gospel of Christ is true with all my heart. There is no power in this life that will make me lose this testimony because I will never stop relying on Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I know that the Holy Ghost is there to comfort me and let me know what I need to do. I know there isn't a chance in the world that I would be happy if the Church of Jesus Christ didn't exist.

How I live my faith

Before my mission I was a young men's advisor. It was a great opportunity to practice teaching and building up young men to want to be missionaries. I loved teaching those young men. I am really excited to serve the Lord and share the Gospel and my testimony.
