Hi I'm Joseph Bernards

I am from Layton, Utah. I am a saxophonist. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Layton, Utah. I play the saxophone, clarinet, flute, and piano. I am serving a mission in the Canada Toronto Mission. I have a family of 10, and I love each and every one of them. I have 4 sisters and 3 brothers. I am the 2nd oldest. I love to do things outdoors like hiking, camping, running, climbing, biking, fishing, and hunting. I love to go camping with my family in Zion National Park in Utah. I love reading fiction books like The Lord of the Rings, The Inheritance series, and others like them. I enjoy doing everything I can with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and baptized at eight. I went on many youth campouts, including trek, where I was able to feel the spirit and learn of the truthfulness of the Gospel. I was taught the Gospel in my home, and at church. I read the Book of Mormon and asked the Father if it is true. I know that this is the Restored Church of Jesus Christ on the Earth today and that Joseph Smith was a true prophet. I know that by the power of God, Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon and restored all the truths that were lost. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that we can all gain a testimony by reading it and asking the Father if it is true. I know that Jesus Christ came to this earth and Atoned for the sins of all mankind, and if we repent and endure to the end, we can be able to recieve all that the Father has to offer. I know that we will are all able to return to our Heavenly Father and become as He is.

How I live my faith

I am a Missionary in the Canada Toronto Mission. I will be serving the Lord full time until August 2016, and after, I will keep serving Him. I will serve with all my heart, might, mind, and strength. I am doing my best to be an example to everyone. I love the mission field and bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ into other people's lives. I desire that everyone will be able to learn of Jesus Christ and accept Him into their lives. I know that the Restored Church of Jesus Christ and The Atonement of Jesus Chris can help anyone who simply asks.
