Hi I'm Joshua

I grew up in Utah, I work with computers and electronics, and I love to read. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love reading, and love learning. I particularly enjoy science, technology and math, as well as cryptography and etymology. I'm currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I know the Book of Mormon is true - that it had to come forth in the way Joseph Smith said it did, and that it contains the Word of the Lord as revealed in this present day. I know that when abiding by its precepts, I've feel closer to God and my fellow man.

How I live my faith

Right now I only have to focus on the Gospel - I don't need to stress over what I'm going to eat or classes or homework - I have an opportunity, as an official missionary for the Church, to dedicate 100% of my time to helping other people and teaching about the Gospel. It's an opportunity I'm immensely grateful for, and involves service projects, proselyting, teaching lessons, inviting others to come to Church, etc.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book Of Mormon is an account similar to that of the Bible - just as the Bible tells of prophets and Christ's ministry in the area around Jerusalem, the Book of Mormon tells of prophets and Christ's ministry in the Americas - referenced, in the Bible, as the "other sheep" which Christ had, which were "not of this fold" as he was speaking near Jerusalem. Those who sincerely seek an answer as to whether the Book of Mormon is true can receive answer through prayer. God will confirm it to you. Show more Show less
