Hi I'm Joshua L. Loveday

I am an independent author, illustrator, tech writer, and songwriter and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am currently a student at Utah State University in Logan, UT and I'm studying English with a Technical Communication emphasis. Outside of school I am a husband, independent author, illustrator, and songwriter. It is my hope that I will be able to convey important values and morals through my stories and songs so that I might bring others unto Christ. I know that this church is true and I know that the world needs hope right now, so I do all that I can to bring that to them.

Why I am a Mormon

One of my favorite scripture passages is "I knew it, and I knew that God knew it, and I could not deny it." While serving a mission, I received multiple witnesses of the truthfulness of this gospel. I know that Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know that God is our loving Heavenly Father and that his Son, Jesus Christ, atoned for the sins of all mankind. This knowledge and understanding is woven into every fibre of my being. I know it, and I know that God knows it, and cannot and will not deny it.

How I live my faith

While I was serving my mission in Melbourne, Australia, I made the decision to devote all of my time and talents to serving our Heavenly Father and bringing people unto Christ. As a member of the church, I have frequently taught the gospel principles class, so I am very familiar with the basic doctrines of the church. It is my goal to apply those doctrines and principles to symbolic, fictional stories that people outside of our faith may relate to and understand. My current book series "The Gap-Cloud Adventures" is a tale of courage, faith, hope, and friendship. I have no intention of being the next C.S. Lewis, but I hope that my novels can convey as much spiritual meaning to my readers as his novels did for his readers.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Joshua L. Loveday
The Book of Mormon testifies of the divinity and sacrifice of our Savior Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon is a spiritual record of the people of the Americas that takes place before, during, and after the life of Christ. Within the sacred pages of the Book of Mormon, one can learn why Jesus Christ made a sacrifice for us, how we can follow his example, and how we can return to our Heavenly Father. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, and I know that anyone who reads it and sincerely prays about it will know the truthfulness of it. Show more Show less
