Hi I'm Joshua Fielding

I was born and raised in Arizona. I'm a sports and outdoor enthusiast. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I Love sports, and outdoor activites. I especially love camping, hiking, water rafting and canoeing, cliff repelling, climbing, and about any other outdoor activity you can think of......but not fishing. Personally, I haven't yet developed the patience, nor the success for fishing, but i haven't given up yet! I love pretty much any sport, anything where i can have fun . I'm an Eagle Scout, in which scouting was a direct resource for me to be able to do the adventurous things I'd always wanted to do, so I've always loved scouting. I love to read, and i like Algebra, biology, and i love history, especially U.S. History.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i know that this church is true. I know that God is our loving Heavenly Father, who sent his son, Jesus Christ, to atone for our sins, mistakes, misdeeds, and pain, and sorrow. I know that the Atonement is real! When i repent of my sins sincerely, i can feel my burdens literally lift, and peace and joy and happiness fill my life more and more as i Repent. I know that both our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live, and what they want is our happiness, for this is their work and glory, to bring to pass our immortality, and eternal life, the greatest of all the gifts of God. They give of themselves, because they love us, and want everything in mortality for our good, both the easy and the hard times. I know for a fact , that when we are in our darkest abyss, Heavenly Father is right there holding his hand. All we have to do is reach out and take it. If all we can do is want him to help us, then he will help transform us into something beautiful, strong and precious, for that is what we are to him. He loves us, so much, that he gave us everything we have. He wants us to Love him and love others as ourselves, which are the two top commandments. I know that this church is his church, that his power and spirit are here in his church, and that he works through leaders and members of the church, for not only to help others, but to help themselves as well. It is not our work, it is his. I know, that Joseph Smith saw God our Father, and his son, Jesus Christ in the sacred grove, because he wanted to know from them, which church he should join. I know that President Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God, for he is his servant, as all the other apostles, and leaders of the church, both abroad and local. I know that we can live with God after we die, eternally, and be together forever with our families, giving us the greatest happiness that we could ever experience, for it's our purpose to be happy. In the name of Jesus Christ amen

How I live my faith

I have been called as a missionary by my church, in which I'm really excited to serve, so I'm preparing until I arrive at the date they have called me by. Anyway, i play the piano for the meetings of men, 12 and up, which is something I've always loved to do. I really love playing church hymns, in which they bring in a sweet spirit to my life that is hard to get anywhere else. Until i go as a Missionary, serving in another part of the world, I've been getting practice here before i go, going with other Missionaries which have been called to serve where i live, and see how they do missionary work, and try to learn as much as i can, before i go to my own mission.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

Joshua Fielding
I know that God Is our Father, and that he lives! He loves us more than we know, which is why he sent his only son, to die for us, to suffer our mistakes, pains, and sorrows, that through his grace and our endurance, we will be able to live with our Father, whom we knew from the beginning, forever, having the fullest joy, with our families. That is what's called the great plan of happiness. That's why we're here, to develop ourselves, help others and our families, in any way we can, to return to live with our Heavenly Father, for we are all he was ever wanted, to be happy, and to have all the blessings we can have. That is why he sends prophets, to help give direction for the whole church and world, on how to come back to him, for i know that if we do what he wants us to do, we will be so happy, and have faith so strong, that there isn't anything that we can't do with him. In his son's name, Jesus Christ, amen. Show more Show less
