Hi I'm Josh Padilla

I'm 18. My car is as old as I am. I love long walks on the beach. I think being yourself is rad.

About Me

Cliff jumping is only fun when you have a group. I'd rather go to a party than host one. My favorite food is Italian. I'm headed to Mexico for my mission. All music is great, even country at times. And if I was trapped on an island and could only have three things it would be a boat, a map and an endless drink producing mini fridge.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I know in my heart that by following the teachings of Jesus Christ with diligence and prayer and study and desire is the only way I can return to my Heavenly Father with honor.

How I live my faith

I've been hometeaching now for four years and it's a good experience for any type of teaching in the future in that you are having to prepare lessons and instruct people of all ages. I try to be an example to my friends so that they understand and respect the standards I've set for my life. I was never called to be a primary teacher but I've filled in and taught kids from the ages 4 - 9. The times I get to myself to study scriptures has lately become more and more important to me. The Book of Mormon is the word of God and it will be my best friend as I prepare for my mission.
