Hi I'm Joshua Einboden

I'm a full-time missionary from Texas, Eagle Scout with a Silver Palm, I love love to sing and play euphonium, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm serving a full-time mission for the church. I became an Eagle Scout in 2013 and have received the Silver Palm. I'm a member of the Order of the Arrow. When I was adopted and sealed to my family in the Boise, Idaho temple. When I return from my mission I will major in music education at BYU-Idaho.

Why I am a Mormon

Being born into this church I have been able to receive His gospel throughout my whole life. Certainly this does make it easier for me to stay with the church but at one point I did have my doubts. I know this is the one true church and that His gospel was restored upon this earth by Joseph Smith who also translated the Book of Mormon for us. I know that Thomas S. Monson is the living prophet and leader of our church today. I know that because of Christ's atonement we can all be saved and return to live with our Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

Being a youth in my ward has given me plenty of opportunities to go out and do service for others. I participate in my community as an Eagle Scout. While I'm at school I live my faith by not going with the flow of everyone else. I follow the churches standards and lots of my friends realize how different I am from everyone that isn't a Mormon.

Who are the Mormons?

Joshua Einboden
"Mormons" are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The name comes from the Book of Mormon which we believe to be a book of scripture in conjunction to the Holy Bible. Show more Show less
