Hi I'm Joseph King

I grew up in Texas most of my life. I am the middle child of five boys. I'm a mormon

About Me

I graduated high-school with nothing special. I played football and wrestling in high-school. Played football in Texas and moved up to Oregon Junior year and found wrestling. Just wish I found wrestling sooner so I could of been better. Like to work out and get in better shape. Always trying to improve myself, whether it be physically, mentally or spiritually.

Why I am a Mormon

For most of my teenage life I felt like I was lost.I lived with my mom and she was most of the problem. I moved to Oregon to live with dad and that is when I truly started to the see the difference in having the gospel and not having it. Seeing people with the true love of Christ and they were all accepting of me. I began to look more deeply into the church and how I could obtain this happiness. I read the Book of Mormon and it brought this joy and peace every time I read it. I went to church more often and began to feel the spirit. Most important I prayed about it. To have confirmation that this church is true and the scriptures. When I pondered about it images of my past came to me and how I was living and my mom. I knew that was not living. All the sadness and anger that came from trying to live the way of man. Then I thought about the way this book has made me feel and this church, how it helped me climb out of my hole. I know for a fact that this is the one true church. Because of the feeling in my heart I get when I ask.

How I live my faith

I am going on a volunteer 2 year mission for the church soon. I have a strong desire to share this light that has been given to me. I shared the gospel at school to all who asked. I strive to live the Lord's standard. I go to church every Sunday to do my duties.
