Hi I'm Josh

I grew up in Orem, Utah. I went to Orem High School. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to program. I like to code for fun, but games the most due to the complex nature and challenge they prove. I also like to play board, card, and video games with friends and family. It's great to do things with my friends and family, as everything is always more fun. I love to mod, and make maps in map editors. I've played all sorts of games, and prefer RPGs the most.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the Church. I've grown up in it, and have always loved it. I loved going to church to feel the spirit, and the love everyone has for each other. There's so much support and love in this church. I believe in Christ, and in his atonement (Which is when he died on the cross and suffered for our sins in the garden). I believe that God is our eternal father, and he's just like any other father who wants the best for us. Even during the hard times, I know that he's there, and only allows it so I can grow and become a better person. I know the Church is true. There's always been something inside always telling me it's true, and always comforting me when I needed it most.

How I live my faith

I would go to church every Sunday for the three hours. I would go home teaching (which means to teach other specific members). I would go every Wednesday for Mutual or the Young Mens. We would do scouting, service, and etc. We had a lot of fun on camping trips, and service projects. Our group helped out other members that weren't able to.

What is being a Mormon like?

Josh
It's just like being like anyone else, the difference is being is the peace you feel when you do good things. As a mormon, it's a 24/7 religion not a Sunday only religion. Happiness is found through the little things, and not so much the large, grand activities that are most commonly held highly. As a mormon, you are taught to look for these small things, and to help others, as others have helped you at some point in your life. To us, families are one of the most important things. Even if you aren't close to your parents, they have helped you none the less to at least make it into life. Wither you judge that to be a good thing or a bad thing is up to you. My family and my friends have certainly brought me joy for the most part. So to answer the question more clearly, we love each other, and our families regardless of what they may do. We may not love what they do, and they may drive us up the wall sometimes, but everyone is a child of God. Not only that, but we do our best to be better, and become better people. We are not perfect, but a work in progress. Show more Show less
