Hi I'm Joshua

I grew up in Louisiana, love to play soccer and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born in Utah and soon after moved down south to Louisiana. I grew up playing soccer almost everyday. I run for fun and good causes. My mom was nice enough to teach me piano and now I love to play it all the time. I am the oldest of five and I have three sisters and one brother, which are my best friends in the world. I just received a mission call to serve in the California Redlands Mission. I am so excited that I get to serve the Lord.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon partly because I was born into the faith, but as I got older and started to think about what I was doing and why and I realized I was doing it because I loved to do it. The happy, peaceful feeling I get when I am around other members of my church and the service I got to provide for others is so much fun, it's hard to find a reason to stop. I continue to help with everyone that I can because I have so much to give and God would not want me to keep it to myself.

How I live my faith

In my youth group I am in a youth committee that helps plan activities for other teenagers in my area. It is lots of fun because we can relate to the other youth and we can plan specifically for them. I also have the opportunity visit other families in the church the first Sunday of every month and check up so no one feels left out.
