Hi I'm Josh

I grew up in Arizona. I'm in a punk rock band, i'm Republican, I'm serving in the Minnesota Minneapolis Mission. and i'm a Mormon.

About Me

When i was born i was adopted into a great LDS home with wonderful parents. I am close to my birth and my adopted families. Growing up i loved to hunt and fish, it is one of my passions. Arizona is one of the best places in the world and is where i have most of my memories. I love politics, and a good debate here and there is always fun. I love The United States, this is the best country ever! The Constitution of the United States is from God and the Founding Fathers were inspired men. I love spending time with my friends and enjoying life! Back at home i'm in a band with my best friend and my cousin. We play almost all types of music! I just love slapping da bass! Throughout high school i played football and lacrosse. But now things are better, i am currently serving in the Minnesota Minneapolis Mission! it is such a great blessing to be part of building the Lords Kingdom here on the Earth. This is the only true Church.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am i a Mormon? Well, let me tell you. I was baptized into the Mormon church, but i didn't really believe in it. I only got baptized and progressed in the church only cause my friends were. My freshman year in high school i got really rebellious (like most kids) and didn't care about anything. I only went to church cause my parents told me if i didn't i would be grounded. This lasted till the middle of my senior year. So as life went on i still didn't really believe, i had major lack of faith. Until our Beloved Prophet President Tomas S. Monson changed the mission age to 18. Then all my friends started getting there mission calls, and i kinda felt left out cause they had faith in Christ and the church and i did not. In the month of February 2013 i took my problems to the Book of Mormon. Just like all the missionaries and member of the church tell you, read the Book of Mormon. So I did for the first time ever. I prayed to God before i started reading, as i got into the middle of 1Nephi... it hit me, it hit me like a brick wall.The spirit of the Lord was so strong in my heart. I started laughing! From that day on i knew that the Gospel of Jesus Christ was restored and that the Book of Mormon is true. I will never deny what i felt that night. My testimony is growing stronger each time i read the Book of Mormon. I love Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. I love his gospel.

How I live my faith

By serving Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ with all my heart, might, mind, and strength.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

As i study the scriptures i can find my self growing a closer relationship with God and our savior Jesus Christ. The Hold Spirit will revel things to you as you read the scriptures. Things that you can relate to your personal life and you can receive answers of guidance and comfort. The Holy Bible and the Book of Mormon are testaments of Jesus Christ. God loves us so much he gave us these books. They are the word of God. Show more Show less
