Hi I'm Josie Anderson

I am a musician, I hope to change the world's view of modesty and fashion, I love Iceland, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 18 years old and had the opportunity to travel to Iceland in the summer of 2014. It was one of the most amazing things that I've ever done, and I left having a greater appreciation for all of Heavenly Father's children. Because I want to share this joy with other people, I am planning to go on an LDS mission. I love to play the violin and piano, and to accompany other people as they perform musically. I love spending time with little kids, family, and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! I love sharing my faith and testimony of the gospel, and that I have the opportunity to go to girls camps, pioneer treks, LDS seminary and the temple. My testimony has been strengthened because of all of those things! I have gained a strong testimony that Heavenly Father loves me, that I am His daughter, and that He wants to help me in what I am doing, or what I might need help with. I have had personal experiences that show me that He will bless me if I do what I'm supposed to. If I read my scriptures, pray multiple times a day, and participate in my church activities, I will be blessed!

How I live my faith

From ages 12-18, I was heavily involved in my ward's young women. We became very close, and I enjoyed spending so much time with them. I love talking and interacting with my girls, and they're each so different that our activities are always fun. I am able to volunteer at some community organizations, which allows me to share my faith in different ways.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Josie Anderson
No one is required to serve a mission. I'm going to serve my mission because I love Heavenly Father and I want to help bring others the joy that I feel. The gospel is a wonderful thing to teach people! Show more Show less
