Hi I'm Joshua Giles

I grew up in multiple countries of the world, I'm a Martial Artist, Photographer, Artist, Musician, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

One of my favourite passions is martial arts, I love studying all the different styles, wushu, karate, tae kwon do, muay thai, tricking, and parkour, I am also 1st degree black belt. I also love music, music is the sound of life it is beautiful and amazing, I love studying and creating my own compositions! I love to travel, visiting new places, counties, and meeting new people and experience new cultures is the best! The world is an amazing place full of life that is just beautiful! I'm always up for an adventure!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (aka Mormons), but just because I was born into it doesn't mean I blindly stay and follow. I'm a Mormon because I choose to be, it is what I believe in and who I am! I have a testimony that God lives, and so does His son Jesus Christ. I believe that Christ is our Savior and came to this world to die, so that we may be saved and can repent of our sins! I also believe that prophets still exist and that Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet of God! I believe that families are eternal and can and will be together forever! I also believe that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and works hand in hand with the Bible! I love both the Bible and Book of Mormon! I believe Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and helped restore His church onto the earth once more! I also believe that everyone of us plays an important role in this world, the world is like a puzzle and without you it wouldn't be complete, we are all here for a reason no matter how big or small it may seem! In the name of Jesus Christ Amen!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the best that I can be, an example. It doesn't matter if they are of my faith, or not I always try to be kind and genuine to anyone I meet. I love helping people, doesn't matter your religion I still care about you!

No Mormons do not worship Joseph Smith, we believe him to be a prophet of God, and respect him, but do not worship him. Show more Show less
