Hi I'm Elder Joey Swanger

I'm a brother. I'm a Impressionist. I'm a Actor. I'm a High school honors graduate. I'm a full time missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have always had a love for acting and art. For as long as I can remember I've wanted to be the center of attention. I got good grades in school, I am the older brother of three little girls, I am an experienced stage actor, self taught impressionist and makeup artist, I am an Eagle Scout, Black Belt, and intermediate pianist. I have always enjoyed creating things and making my ideas become reality. Every chance I have, I use my skills and create things, be it drawings, paintings, songs, monologues, YouTube videos, or new voices.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know it is the true church of God. I know that Joseph Smith Jr. was a prophet of God and that he restored the church to the earth. I know that the Book of Mormon is real scripture, and that it contains the fullness of the gospel. I know that God wants our families to be together forever, and that, with His plan, it is possible to be with our families for eternity. I know that this message is a message of happiness, and I want nothing more than to be happy for the rest of my eternity. This church contains all of the truth that God has revealed as of now. Other churches have truth, but none have all of it, save one. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I love my church with all my heart and I show it in my daily life. I share what I have learned with my friends whenever I can. I love to spread the gospel to let people know what we really believe. I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My calling is critical for spreading the gospel. Without the work that missionaries do, some people may never learn the truth. I don't want anyone to go without hearing this message at least once in their lifetime. That's why I am serving a mission. I am human, so I know I fall short, but I would like to think that I am kind to those I interact with almost all the time. I do have my short comings, but I try to overcome them to be a better representative of Christ. I get better everyday, and I'm not done growing yet! Someday, I hope to be the best example possible for any children I may have.
