Hi I'm Joshua Blackburn

I grew up in Utah I graduated from High School, I am going on a mission to Nashville Tennessee, I love Star Wars and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a young Adult on the Lords errand as a missionary and bringing people to Christ, in the Tennessee Nashville mission for two years as of July 2014. I am loving every minute of it, some of the things I love to do are: go camping, go on vacation, play video games,(yes everything from Mario, Metroid, Zelda, Call of Duty, Battlefield, and Halo are right up my alley) watch movies( Star Wars, marvel, action and adventure and comedy),hangout with friends, go to young mens, and be myself. I love people and I love star wars. After my mission I want to enlist in the Air Force as either a security forces specialist, or Air Traffic Controller and get a degree to become a video game designer.

Why I am a Mormon

I was Born In a good family that were already part of the LDS church. My parents have taught me good values that have blessed my life in so many ways. Still having struggles and living life is hard and I am grateful I am a mormon becuase of the many blessings that I have had in my life by being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have listened to the council of the Scriptures and Great leaders and prayed for answers and have received an answer that this was true. I know our Savior Jesus Christ is real that he died for the sins of all mankind that me might be able to repent and return to our Heavenly Father, and that he is real also. I know that the Prophet Joseph Smith restored the gospel today and translated the book of mormon that i might go out and bring people to Christ through that book, becuase it is the keystone of our religion. I know that Thomas S. Monson is our true prophet today, and leads and guides this church. I know that this church is true , in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by: going to church, being an example to my quorum, being faithful, paying my tithing, reading my scriptures,praying and studying the gospel. I strive to live as my savior would have me be, and I obey the teachings I have been taught by the LDS church, and leaders. I know that I am not perfect or complete and still have things that I can work on to be more like Jesus Christ our savior and I can be because I have used his atonement to help me learn from the mistakes I have made to make me a better follower of Christ.
