Hi I'm Joshua Pulsipher

I grew up in the Western U.S., I am a chemical engineer. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a chemical engineering student at Brigham Young University located in Provo, UT. I have a passion for aviation and am a UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) pilot who conducts research at BYU. I have been piloting unmanned aircraft for nearly a decade and plan on getting my pilot's license. I also have a passion for anything involving the water such as water sports, competitive swimming, surfing, water polo, and snow skiing. I even used to be a lifeguard and swim instructor.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and have always loved the comfort it has brought me and my family. It is a family oriented church which helps to strength families rather than tearing them down. I have witnessed countless people decide to join the church and have seen their lives dramatically improve. I have a firm testimony that this is Christ's church upon the earth. I know that Christ lives and that through his atonement our lives can be strengthened and comforted, through his atonement we can live with him and God once again. I also have a testimony of the Bible and the Book of Mormon, that they are word of God and direct our lives toward Christ's perfect example. Finally, I also have a knowledge of modern day revelation that we ourselves can obtain through the holy spirit to direct our lives and that modern day prophets can receive and share with everyone upon the earth..

How I live my faith

I actively participate in church through callings and volunteering. I have served in the Sunday school presidency for the past 2 years. This has provided me with the opportunity to train and assist teachers, and teach some classes when necessary. I also will start to serve as a full time missionary starting in June 2014 and will serve the people of Peru in the Trujillo mission.
