Hi I'm Josh Burtenshaw

Im a farmer, I love to snowmobile, dirtbike, ride rzr's, and do anything outdoors. Im a mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the small town of Mud Lake, Idaho. Ever since I was little I have loved to work on the farm! Growing up my dad taught us how to work hard and my mom taught us how love and respect others! I am the oldest of the six siblings in my family, 5 boys and 1 girl. I love to ride snowmobiles, dirt bikes, RZR's, four-wheelers, and anything that goes fast! I love to play sports, and I also enjoy hunting, fishing, camping, and spending time with my family and friends and doing anything outdoors! I am currently in Tempe Arizona serving a mission and I love every second of it! I think that is is the hottest place in the world but i am getting a good farmers tan so I will fit right in back in Idaho! I Love the Lord and am grateful for the opportunity that i have to serve him!

Why I am a Mormon

My family has always been really active in the church and so I was born into the church. As I have grown up in the church and have learned more about Jesus Christ and his teaching it has truly blessed my life and I don't know where I would be without the knowledge that I have received from being a Mormon. The Mormon faith has brought me so much peace and happiness, and knowing that I can return to live with my family again in the next life is such a blessing. I have come to know that this is the Saviors true church on earth today through prayer and reading the Book or Mormon, and I know that it can bless the lives of others and that is why I am serving a mission.

How I live my faith

I have been in the church my whole life. I live in a pretty small community of good people. I have just been called to serve The Lord on a 2 year full time mission. I am going to Tempe Arizona. In our home ward I have had many callings. I am in the young men's and I participate in scouts and lots of other church activities.
