Hi I'm Josie

I live in the most beautiful area of the world, Missouri! (I am a little biased). I am goofy and love humor! I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a sophomore in college. I currently do not have a major, although I am interested in biology, the arts, psychology, and Spanish. I am going to be serving a mission in July. I love to exercise, sing, play the piano, and violin. I love to work hard, because I know when I do that my work has paid off. I love my family, and my friends. I am thankful to have this gospel in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I have grown up as a member of this church. But it is not only that. I am a Mormon because I want to be able to return to my Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. I would not be here if it weren't for Jesus Christ and His atonement. He has made me who I am. I know that the Christ loves me. I know that this church is true. This knowledge did not happen overnight it was a process, that at times I did not even know was occurring. I know that the commandments and the teachings of the gospel help me be free. I am a Mormon because I am free.

How I live my faith

I know that without this church that I have been a part of for my entire life I would be lost. I have been able to have a stable solid ground because of it. I have been able to grow up in a family that is all members of this church. I have been learning that everyone that I come into contact with is a child of God. And with this knowledge that I have gained it makes me want to be able to live my life in a Christ-like manner. I have been blessed to be able to go to the singles' branch in the area I live. And this branch that I am a part of is like no other branch or ward that I have ever been a part of. Everyone there is so loving and kind. I know that I can turn to my Branch President when I am in need of a friend or in need of any kind of support. I know that each ward or branch is a part of the fold of God.
