Hi I'm Joshua Edward Hammond

I'm a student, adventurer, outdoors-man, and a friend. And I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love my family, the outdoors and being active, especially with friends. One of my favorite things to do is to be competitive in the 300 meter hurdles. I love to learn and I attend Brigham Young University studying Bio-Chemistry. I am serving a mission or the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Recife Brazil.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer! I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I have studied, and prayed i have felt an assurance of its truth. As I live by its precepts I find myself happier and better. I don't know everything, but I have faith in my God who does. Some might ask why I limit myself living God's Commandments. In truth, they set me free. Free of guilt, complications, and sorrow. I feel confident and happy each day as I try to be better and more Christ-like than the day before. I have felt his blessings and his guidance in my life. I have read the Book of Mormon, and its invitation to come to Jesus Christ has blessed my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith personally, and try to lift those around me too. I study the scriptures (both the Bible and the Book of Mormon) in an effort to learn more about what I can do to become more like Jesus Christ, my role model. As I tr to be more like Him, my Savior, my life is simpler, happier and more complete.
