Hi I'm Josie

I love spending time with my family. I love dancing! I'm going on a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being happy! :) And my family brings me so much joy, it doesn't matter what we are doing, if it's with my family it is the best thing ever! Whether it's a road trip, family counsel, or just a day at home, it always makes me happy when I'm with my family. Soon I will be leaving my family to serve a mission in Texas, I've always thought of a mission as a grand adventure, looking forward to it with excitement and joy. As I approach the day of my departure, I am beginning to realize the sacrifices of a missionary. But the very joy I have found in being a part of my family is what drives me to serve a mission. I love dancing, singing, playing the piano, running, hiking, biking, basketball, riding horses, and walking in the rain. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for my entire life. The blessings that have come because of this are innumerable. It has literally shaped the person I am today, and the person I will become. In my home I was taught to love God and to keep his commandments. I was taught that because of Jesus Christ I can repent and feel clean again no matter what I do. I have experienced the power of the Atonement, and I testify that it has the power to heal us and to make us clean. I love my savior Jesus Christ and I am so grateful for the sacrifice He made for me personally. I have come to know that it is a very personal sacrifice, and that He knows me individually and loves me. I have read the Book of Mormon and I have prayed and asked God if it is true, and I can testify that it is true! It is another testament of Jesus Christ, and it contains the fullness of His Gospel.

How I live my faith

There are so many people in the world that just need a helping hand or a kind word of encouragement. I strive every day to follow the example of Jesus Christ by reaching out in love to the people around me. I have found that simply loving people is the best way to help them. I love to smile, and sometimes a smile is all it takes to brighten someones day. By getting to know people I learn about what matters most to them. Most people just need a friend, someone to listen to them and make them laugh. I read the scriptures and pray everyday and this gives me the strength to serve others, brings me closer to God, and helps me have a bigger perspective.
