Hi I'm Josh

Utah born, Idaho raised, Brazil refined. I like to smile and laugh, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a pretty normal guy. I enjoy traveling and having new adventures, I like to study and read, and I love my family. I grew up in Idaho with my brothers and my sister in a happy family. I've always liked to be an active person; practicing sports, fishing and camping, and exercising. I am studying now to earn my MD at Uniformed Services University in Bethesda, MD.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised by good parents in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints; but that's not why I am a Mormon. My choice, since 17 years of age, has been to learn of, practice at, and live the teachings of Christ. Simply put, I came to a crossroad in my life where I questioned what I had learned in the church and if I really wanted to follow its teachings. In a moment of confusion and a feeling of being lost, I sought an answer of God through prayer, and He answered in a very clear and special way to me. This gospel makes me happy, and brings light and direction to my life. That's why I will continue doing my best to follow it!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by daily prayer and scripture study, and seeking to be a "doer" of the word, and not just a "hearer." Life, with all its up's and down's, can make us feel like we are in a boat on a lake in the middle of the bad storm, but trying to focus on the simple principles that were taught by Christ have brought me peace.
