Hi I'm Joseph Thurman

I grew up in Southern California, on my way to serve a two year mission in Copenhagen, Denmark. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to listen to music, especially Pink Floyd. I'm always ready for adventures and trying new things. I'm very outdoorsy and love being around people. I attended LDS Business College for two years, studying Medical Assisting. Throughout the time I lived in Salt Lake City, I worked for the Church at the Church History Library.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a very hard-headed person. I've dedicated most of my mindset to science and facts. If the facts are there, I believe it. As time went on throughout my teenage years, I had a difficult time believing in faith. The time went on, and one experience after another led me to believe that I've seen too much to deny that the Gospel is true. That's why I am a Mormon, and why I'm dedicating my life to the Church.

How I live my faith

I give as much service as I can to others, and share my testimony whenever I have the chance. Recently I decided to serve a mission, and was called to the Denmark Copenhagen mission for two years. I am more than excited to loose myself in the work and dedicate two years to the greater good of my Heavenly Father's plan.
