Hi I'm Joshua

I'm a missionary in the South and a bass playing musician. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Yes, I am your stereotypical Mormon: the youngest of 11 kids and I grew up in Utah..... But I like to do normal-people things too! Such as play and listen to all kinds of music, wander around in the mountains, make gourmet quesadillas, go to school, play ultimate frisbee, read fantasy and sci-fi books, learn and preach the gospel, play 6-hour long board games, spend time with family, perform on stage, go on adventures with friends, and eat vanilla ice cream with freshly baked cookies. I'm basically willing to try out anything at least once!

Why I am a Mormon

My life has not always been sugar plums and cupcakes. We all face our own challenges and trials because that is how we grow in experience. For instance, my mom passed away when I was 15. That was and still is hard for me to cope with, but because of my beliefs I am able to keep my head up and smile wide! :) The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints teaches that families can be sealed (in other words: linked or bonded) together for time and all eternity. My dad and mom were sealed in the temple when they were married. My siblings and I are sealed to them and to each other for time and all eternity. Even though my mother is gone from this mortal life, I know that she is watching over me wherever I am. I know that I will be able to embrace her again through the Atonement of Jesus Christ and his Plan of Happiness for all of us. I want to share my love for Christ and His true and living church with everyone! I love my family, and I know that we will be together forever. This knowledge brings me so much comfort and joy. This is why I am happy. This is one of the reasons why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Currently, I'm a missionary serving in the Georgia Macon Mission. I am a set apart representative of Jesus Christ. I have been called by the living prophet today, President Thomas S. Monson, to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the wonderful people of the South. They have such strong faith in Christ, and I love talking to people about their life experiences and helping them come closer to our Savior. I love being a missionary!
