Hi I'm Josh

I'm a minimalist, an organic gardener, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love gardening! It's my passion. It's relaxing and calming. I love being outside in God's beautiful world and observing the way He does things. I believe all the world's problems can be solved with gardening. I am a minimalist, which just means I like to cut everything out of my life that isn't important. It allows me to focus on the things that matter: God and people. I love music and movies. And I like to write. And I just started the last two sentences with conjunctions. But I'm okay with that.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this is God's church on the earth and that He leads and guides it through a living prophet. I did not come by that knowledge easily or lightly, nor is my testimony full or in its finished state. It took years of humble, daily study and prayer to gain a relationship with God and to hear and understand the way He communicates to me personally. But through the darkness and the struggle I have gained a light and a hope that I cherish every day of my life.

How I live my faith

I believe in love. In all degrees and in all forms. That's what I try to do every day. I try to love others. I try to connect with others in a genuine way. I am not perfect at this. But I try to do my best. I have always been quiet and shy, but that has given me a unique lens through which to view people. I tend to notice those who need a friend and I like to try to befriend them. I like to reach out to those who need help and who just need love.
