Hi I'm Joseph Gregory

I was born and raised in a small town, I love the out doors and my family, and the out doors with my family, I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in a small town my whole life. have only ever had farm jobs and I love it. I like to do good hard work that makes me tired but makes me feel good. When I was eleven I was in a bad car wreck with my sister, and we were not expected to live, and then they didn't think I would keep my leg. Because of this experience, I have learned a lot. yeah it was hard, but i learned a lot. I felt closer to God at those times that were hardest than at any other time. We are both doing great. I hunt and hike and play sports and what ever else I want to do. My sister is married and has a little boy. After I serve my LDS mission in Portland Oregon, I will go to college for agricultural business and ranch management.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon not because I was raised the way, but because by living the way I know it to be right, I have had answers to countless prayers, felt the spirit, and felt my Saviors love. There is no better feeling, I live for it, so I live His laws so I can feel it again and again.

How I live my faith

I have always been a member of the LDS church. As I have grown up in the church I have been teachers quorum president and had many other responsibilities mostly to do with service. Now I am serving a Mission in Portland Oregon. I am serving a mission because I really just want to help people. I want to serve and help people in any way I can. The best way is to share the gospel and message of the Restoration of Christs true church on the earth. I am not going to pretend that I am perfect and lived a perfect life or never had very many struggles. I struggle ever day, but I know I can repent of all those dumb mistakes I make, big or small. That's why the gospel and this church are so important to me, Because I know that the Savior loves me and wants to forgive me. I live my faith by trying to help other people understand that. I live it by repenting every day and always trying to become something our Father in Heaven can be proud of.
