Hi I'm Joshua

I love the outdoors, I have served a mission in St. Petersburg, I play the bagpipes, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

My home is on the edge of the mountains. Being so close I grew up exploring, camping and hiking in the mountains. Because of this I love exploring and seeing new places. Especially if it is a hard place to find. Another thing that I love to do is play the bagpipes I have played them for several years. I love to read. My favorite book is BeoWulf but I also enjoy Lord Of the Rings, The Wheel of Time, and Harry Potter as well as many other classical and fantasy books. One thing that I have started just recently, but am beginning to enjoy is long distance running. From a young age, I was taught to work hard and have worked in farms and various other jobs since I was 12. I served my mission in St. Petersburg, Russia. And it was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I am now getting ready to go to college, and study international business.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that it is the true gospel of Jesus Christ. I read the Book of Mormon, and it answered the questions that nothing else could. Because I prayed to know of the truth and I was answered.

How I live my faith

I was involved with youth groups for 6 years, and have served in various leadership positions within the organization. I have graduated from seminary where I served as a class president. I have just recently returned from my mission in St. Petersburg, Russia. Some of the things that I do to make sure that I live my faith every day is regular scripture study and prayers every morning and night. I also memorize a scripture a day. Sometimes from the Book of Mormon, but also from the Bible, and other standard works.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

We believe that the Bible is the word of God as far as it is translated correctly. We also believe that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that both support each other. Show more Show less
