Hi I'm Josh

I'm a student at Brigham Young University. I love spaghetti. I speak German. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Josh. Right now, I am a university student and am enjoying every day. I'm the youngest child in a wonderful family. I love the outdoors and all sports. I play lacrosse. Photography is one of my favorite hobbies. I love and speak the German language. I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. There are so many reasons why I am a Mormon, but one main reason is because I have read the Book of Mormon. Through this book, I have found my Savior Jesus Christ. I have had so many powerful spiritual experiences while reading its pages. It's difficult to describe, but they are real and personal to me. These experiences have been direct answers to my prayers. As I read the Book of Mormon, I prayed and asked God to know if it's true. He answered in His own way, and confirmed to me personally that the Book of Mormon is true. I know now that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, along with the Bible. This truth is impressed upon my mind every time I read from these scriptures. I receive direction from God over and over again as I read. It is truly amazing. I invite you and everyone to read the Book of Mormon, ponder its message, and ask God if it is true. I know you will get an answer just like I did. It is my favorite book and has changed my life forever. I know it will change yours too.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in my every day life. My faith really affects all my decisions from how to treat others, to what I do on the weekends. Sunday of course is a special day, where I can go to church and serve in my local ward as the ward mission leader. I get to work closely with the full time missionaries, the Elders, and it's a lot of fun. Serving others brings joy in my life. It's that simple. Living my faith has become who I am, it is not a burden or chore, but a blessing and a way of life.
