Hi I'm Josh

I grew up on a small dairy farm. I am a Missionary in the Nevada Las Vegas West Mission and love it! I love Music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being outside; hiking, canoeing, climbing, fishing, they are all awesome! Archery is a major passion of mine. I play trumpet and french horn and love music in general. I really enjoy dancing, swing dancing being one of the best things to have ever been invented! I am a big fan of kites of all sorts, from deltas to traction kites. I am now serving a Mission in Las Vegas from 2014-2016 and have loved every moment of it, no such thing as a boring week!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints because I have felt God's presence and power in this church. I have seen what my life would be without this church, and know the happiness and inner peace I have in my life is a direct result of my membership in God's church. This church is awesome!! It is directed by God, through a modern day prophet, which is simply amazing. I love knowing that I am a son of God who has potential beyond what I can see.

How I live my faith

I try to see the best in everyone and see them for who they can be, rather than who they currently are. I try to see myself as I can be, and try to live worthy of being a son of God. I visit families in my ward to encourage them to keep coming to church and to ask how their lives are going, which is really great because I also become friends with these families. I try to act as Jesus would. I don't do the best, most perfect job int the world, but I can become better each day. I try to be kind to others, even if that just means saying hello or smiling.

What is the Law of Chastity?

The Law of Chastity is an expression of Love and Respect and Responsibility. The power to create children is immense and eternal, and is a gift from God. Simply put, the Law of Chastity is to not have sexual relations outside of marriage, and to make sure that such relations inside marriage are an expression of love, not lust. The power to create life, and the means by which we can do so, we believe to be sacred. We believe that the soul consists of the spirit and body of human kind, so when we engage in such relationships, it goes far beyond a physical appetite. It is the uniting of two Souls, spiritually and physically. And that is why we believe so strongly that the Law of Chastity be followed; to show the utmost love, and respect, for each other and the power of procreation that God has given us.
