Hi I'm Joshua

I particularly enjoy longboarding and tree-climbing. I'll be living in Japan for the next 2 years. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a brother and son to a wonderful family. I am an artist, and enjoy drawing and taking pictures of nature. I longboard and skate, and particularly enjoy tree-climbing. I am a collector of curious coins and currency. I will be attending Brigham Young University after I serve an LDS mission in Nagoya, Japan.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have personally prayed to our loving Heavenly Father if this gospel is true. Just like Joseph Smith, I started gaining my testimony around the age of 14. I am a Mormon because my faith and beliefs make me happy. I have peace in life because I am a Mormon, and I know that it is true. I am a Mormon because I know that Jesus Christ loves me, and loves everyone on this earth personally. He suffered on the cross and in the Garden of Gesthemene for each one of us. Upon His shoulders He bore the weight of His own cross so that our weights and burdens can be lifted from ours. I am a Mormon because this gospel brings me hope and happiness in this life, and if I live faithfully, eternal life in the next. I'm proud to state that I am a Mormon! I can not deny it.

How I live my faith

I am 18 years old, and I will be serving in Nagoya Japan for the next two years. I love the Japanese people and am very eager to spread the gospel among them. I have held various leadership positions throughout my life, but what I enjoy the most is working among my peers in the youth.
