Hi I'm Josh

I grew up in Flagstaff, AZ. I am currently enrolled in Pharmacy School. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am about a year into a pharmacy graduate program. I have been married for 4 years and am a father to a 1 year old baby-girl. I ran cross-country and track in high school and college and I still enjoy running a few times a week. I also enjoy grilling, camping, music and spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I actively chose to be a Mormon because I believe that God loves me, and that He wants me to be happy. I believe he hears and answers my prayers and that He has guided my life up to this point and will to continue to guide me as I make an effort to stay close to Him. With that guidance from God, has come a knowledge that the LDS church is His church here on the earth today. I have learned that true happiness has come from being an active participating member of this church. I'm a Mormon because it makes me happy. I'm a Mormon because I feel safe, hopeful and a sense of peace when I attend church every week, participate in the meetings, and serve others. I look back at all the potential pitfalls my life could have taken, and I know that God has led me to this place, within the walls of His church, with the people I love most in the world. I'm a Mormon because I believe in Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I serve in my local church as a Sunday school teacher. I usually teach the 5-6 year-old primary class. I also try to lend a hand when members of my community are moving in or out of the neighborhood.
