Hi I'm Josh Phillips

Grew up in a small town in Idaho, I put college football on hold to serve as a representative of Jesus Christ, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the small town of Victor Idaho, population, not very much! I was at a fork in the road in my life I had the opportunity to receive a college scholarship to play football, But I also know that lord has commanded every willing young man to serve a mission. I was scared that if I chose to go on a mission that i would lose my college scholarship. After putting much faith in the lord I decided to serve a mission. I know that that I made the right decision moments after I submitted my papers I got a call from my football coaches saying that would hold my scholarship for when I got home and for that I was extremely grateful. I report June 24th to the Georgia Macon Mission and shortly after my arrival home I begin my journey at The University of Montana Western.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I have seen the church work miracles in my life, and also in other peoples as well. I have seen the happiness and joy the church brings to people that are willing to accept in. I have seen people that need something in there life something more than what they have, and when they accept this church it changes them, they have people in their life that would do absolutely anything for. I know now that I have a purpose in this life and I am thankful for the church and everything it does for me and its members.

How I live my faith

The best way to describe how I live my faith is through service. When you serve other people you get this overwhelming feeling in your heart that are helping someone in need. It is said that when you serve others you are serving God. The feelings I get when I serve others will never be compared to anything, it one of the greatest feelings a person can feel.
