Hi I'm Joshua

I'm from the United States. I love running and playing the piano. I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

About Me

I love playing the piano. Music is a very important part of my life. When I play the piano, I can express myself in a way like no other. My favorite thing to do at the end of a long, stressful day is to sit down, relax, and just play. Another one of my hobbies is running. I started running long distances with my high school cross country team, and now I can't stop. More recently, I've also started swimming and biking so that I can participate in triathlons. My biggest motivator for all of this is to keep my body healthy and strong. My plans for the future are to go to Brigham Young University for four years, then get an advanced degree after that. I don't know exactly what career path I want to follow, but I love the sciences.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that God loves me. I know that because He loves me, He sent His Son to atone for my sins, so that I could live with God again. The gospel of Jesus Christ works. I live it, and it makes me happy. I know that it will make others happy too.

How I live my faith

I have been called as a missionary to the Oslo Norway mission. I will leave my home country for two years, setting aside my education and other worldly concerns so that I can preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. This may seem like a large sacrifice for me to make, but I know that compared to all that God has given to me, I am really just giving back a small amount. I have faith that God will strengthen me in my mission so that I can find success.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

I am a missionary. Right now, if I were to be invited into someone's home to talk to them, I would teach them to their questions. My first purpose as a missionary is to help and serve others. By sharing the answers to their questions that I have found in my own life, I would hope to help them to find understanding and peace in their life. In my life, the way to that peace has been through knowledge of Jesus Christ, his sacrifice for me, and the miraculous plan that our Father in Heaven has for all people. The specifics of what they talk about may vary from lesson to lesson, but it is always a unique, personal message that testifies of Jesus Christ and how we can find joy. Show more Show less
