Hi I'm Joseph Goff

I'm from Rexburg, Idaho, United States. I am preparing to serve a mission to Aguascalientes, Mexico. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm attending college and currently don't know what to pursue. I have felt like becoming an engineer, but there is still a lot of unknown. My mom and dad divorced when I was in 7th grade, about 12 years old. My dad left the Church when I was really little. My older brother has a form of High-Functioning Autism called Asperger's Syndrome. This entails him being very literal and anxious all the time, but we still love him.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true in its teaching and beliefs. Yes, I was born into the Church but that doesn't always make it easy to have a testimony. My Dad was pretty hard on my Mom for taking us to church with her, but she still did it when she could. When I got older it became my choice to either go to church or go with my Dad. I knew then I had to be strong and begin attending church every week. I love the Gospel and would do anything to keep it in my life.

How I live my faith

I am currently in the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah. I study here very hard both of the doctrines of the gospel and the Spanish language for the people in Aguascalientes Mexico. I will be serving in Mexico starting on March 3rd. I love this gospel!!

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Joseph Goff
Ancient prophets wrote the Book of Mormon, and it was translated into English by Joseph Smith. I am so grateful for all the prophets that were inspired to record their spiritual experiences that I can connect to. It is a true record, named after one of the last ancient prophets. Show more Show less
