Hi I'm Josh

I grew up on a small farm. Now I'm going to school full time and working part time. I have a wonderful wife whom I love very much.

About Me

I am currently studying accounting. I am blessed enough to have a job, in a related business field, that allows me to work part time during school and full time in the summers. My wife and I enjoy spending our evenings together, be it on campus in computer labs until midnight, playing board games at friends' houses, or watching a movie at home.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel of Jesus Christ, as it is revealed through the scriptures and my church leaders, has helped me in every aspect of my life. I have learned how to respect and love those around me as I've learned more about our heavenly father's love for each of his children. I've grown closer to my wife as we read scriptures and pray together. Most importantly the promises of eternal life with my family have given me greater understanding, purpose and joy in my life. I know that God lives, he sent his son Jesus Christ, and that through his atonement I can live with my family forever!

How I live my faith

My wife is a leader in the women's society in our congregation, and I do my best to support her in her leadership role. It is my responsibility to visit and encourage families that are members of our church, but are going through difficult times. Apart from these duties, we both have the responsibility to spend about an hour a month teaching in the homes of other members of our congregation.

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does NOT endorse any political party. That said, we are responsible for making the world a better place. We believe that every child of God has been sent here to Earth to choose for themselves whether or not they will follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. In order to ensure that everyone has that opportunity, it is vital that governments and laws promote freedom for all of God's children. Show more Show less
