Hi I'm Joseph Peterson

I have lived Snowflake Arizona my whole life. I am serving a mission in the Kennewick Washington Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just finished a semester at Arizona State University. I did soccer and track during high school. I love Art, especially drawing. Up until recently I worked at an IGA store in the Deli/Bakery and the Produce department. I have 8 siblings and 71 first cousins. I love my family. The LDS faith is a huge part of my life. I will be serving a mission very soon for two years in the Kennewick, Washington Mission. I am very excited. I have so much support from my family, friends, and community. Life is so beautiful.

Why I am a Mormon

Most of family have been LDS for quite a few generations back, and I was baptized when I was eight. Even though I am not what you might call a convert, I was not born converted to the gospel. As with most members my testimony has come slowly and with many experiances. Conversion is a lifelong process. I have had so many experiences that have strengthened me and helped me be who I am today. I have come to know that this gospel is true. My relationship with the Savior is continualy made stronger, and my will comes closer to his will. My life is ever blessed because of this bond.

How I live my faith

I teach the Gospel Principals class every month or so. I enjoy it a lot. Gospel Principals covers the very basic principals of the gospel. It helps to always keep your mind clear, seeing the whole picture, and not get bogged down in the details. My calling in the ward is Ward Missionary. I am there to fellowship and help those in the community come closer to God, and just make them feel welcome (because they are). I home teach two families, one older couple with no kids and one young couple with 5 rambunctious kinds. I love going there homes and visiting with them. They are wonderful people.
