Hi I'm Josh Ferney

I'm in Wisconsin, my family is in China, Georgia, and Utah! I love my family and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I have been in this church my whole life. A few years ago I decided I really needed to find out if this was true, I had heard it from everyone else and I believed it from that. But know I really believe it and I could never deny it! Trials have come in and out of my life but I have really pushed through everything and because of the knowledge I have of Christs Atoning sacrifice for me I have truly been helped and been able to really push forward with that in my life. Because I have come to know and i see the truth everyday then I am really able to share the truth of it! I love this gospel and I could never stop loving it! I am so thankful for all that i have learned and gained from the knowledge that i have about this gospel!

Why I am a Mormon

When I was eight I was baptized, I always thought it was true but it wasn't till recently that I really came to know that it is true. Now that I have learned so much more about this gospel, I really am able to believe it and I have a testimony of its truthfulness and I am grateful that I made the decision to come to this earth and live the way that heavenly Father wants me to, because I truly love this Gospel and truly live all of its teachings. Because I know that it is true it helps me to be able to share that with others! I have really grown to love the members in this gospel. They are all amazing and so much fun to meet! I have been able to really be changed through my life and i know that i have a lot to change but i am becoming a better person every day! I have been able to really strengthen my faith and increase my love for my Savior by serving. It has been a great experience and I have gained so much more love for my savior by being a missionary!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by the way I do everything in my life. This gospel isn't just another church it is a way of life and I have loved living this way, it has blessed me and I know that everything that we are taught is true and is of God! I am thankful for this gospel and for everything I am given and blessed with because of it. I know that my family is being blessed by the way I live and the way they live! I love my Savior Jesus the Christ and i know that what he did was specific for me and you. I am on a full time mission in the Wisconsin Milwaukee Mission! I have loved being here and i have loved the people I meet and teach everyday. Having this in my life has really strengthened me and helped me to push through the rough times that I might go through! I have gained a stronger knowledge of the Atonement and the power it can truly have in all our lives! I love this Gospel!

What is the Book of Mormon?

Josh Ferney
The book of Mormon is another witness of Jesus Christ. It is of the people over in the Americas when christ came and how they lived and how they lived in line with Gods plan for us, before Christ came, when He was on the earth and how the people were told to live in this time. Show more Show less

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Josh Ferney
The Atonement is a gift given to us from Christ and our loving Heavenly Father. It is such a large part of our lives. As we live everyday we apply the Atonement. It is such a crucial element. It is there to strengthen us. I am so thankful that we have a Savior who was willing to be that Sacrifice for us. Without it we wouldn't be able to return to God. I know that as we all strive to apply the Atonement, we are really able to feel of the power with in it. Show more Show less
