Hi I'm Josh

I grew up in Provo, Utah. I love playing Lacrosse. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 18 years old and just graduated from High School. I love to play sports, especially Lacrosse. I really like being outside and in the mountains. I enjoy skiing and mountain biking. Some of my best memories are camping trips with my friends and family. I'm serving a mission in Florida. After my mission I'll be going to BYU.

Why I am a Mormon

My family members are part of the church and I was raised going to church but for a few years of my life I wanted nothing to do with it. I was going against the things I had been taught and I wasn't living my life the way I was supposed to. After a few different experiences I realized I was very unhappy with my current lifestyle and I felt I needed to change. I still did not agree with the things the church taught at this point and was really unsure as to religion as a whole but I did believe in a God. Ultimately I decided that before I step away from the church I had been raised in completely I might as well pray as to whether that was the path I was supposed to follow. It was one of the first times I had truly, sincerely prayed in my life and I was blessed to receive an answer right then. I was still unsure about my beliefs and a number of other things but at that moment I knew one thing for sure: I needed to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Since that experience my knowledge and testimonies of the Church, the things it teaches, and of Jesus Christ have grown so incredibly. I now know for myself that this is the true Church of Jesus Christ and it is the place where we can find the greatest amount of truths that bring the fullest peace and joy in this life.

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving in the Florida Tallahassee Mission!! I do my best to lift others up and lead them to our Savior Jesus Christ! I try to be an example to those around me.
