Hi I'm Josh Ackroyd

I have lived in Utah my whole life, I am a Bird Hunter, a Deer Hunter, a Gamer, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm 19 Years old. I love my Family, so very much, and make them apart of my life, Always. I am a very big Hunter, I love it so much, especially with my Dad and my Brother. My favorite thing to hunt has to be Ducks, and Birds in general. I do love hunting deer, and Big Game animals, as well.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the Church, but that does not mean that I have always been as close as I should have to God, I have had hard times in my life, (as everyone has) where I just did not care. In 2010 my amazing Gramma, passed away, from Cancer she had been diagnosed a few years previous, and I knew deep down that she did not have much longer to live, but I pushed that away. Weeks before she passed away, I was praying nonstop to God to save her, I do not remember an exact answer, but answers come in many different forms. I remember going over to my Gramma's neighbor and asking if he would give her a blessing, with my Father, and I remember telling them, bawling, "I am so scared" Then they told me that, "Everything will be okay" Heavenly Father knew that that was the best answer he could give me at that time because I might not have been paying attention for another answer at that time. Then I was "blaming" God (Which I should not have done) after she had passed away so suddenly. Eventually, after tons of love from my Family, especially from my Mom, and Dad, (whom I love so dearly) I would not be where I am at today if they had just "let me go" and not give me the love, and support, that I truly needed at that time. I am so very grateful for everything that my family has given me, and especially my Heavenly Father, who has blessed me with them. I know, with out doubt! That the Book Of Mormon is the word of God, that it is the Keystone of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints, and that Joseph Smith, really did have the Power of God to translate it and, because of that we have a prophet on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I shoot for charity, I love to help people, no matter what! It is really impotent to me, that my Brothers, and Sisters, in the Gospel to have what they need, Spiritually, and physically. I always do what callings the Bishop has ask me to do, what ever it may be, so that I am able to be there for the Ward, to the best of my abilities.
