Hi I'm Joseph

I'm an LDS Missionary from Arkansas with a passion for technology and video games. And I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a student at BYU in Provo, Utah. I have been a member of the church my whole life. I love reading and Video games, but also enjoy swimming and bike riding.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is the only complete and true church in the world today. I have maintained my membership because I feel that the church is the greatest thing to ever happen to me and my family, and love the work it does.

How I live my faith

I strive to have my religion inform on everything I do, while keeping an open mind to everything around me. I have served in various positions in the church, and now I am serving a mission in the Arizona Phoenix Mission.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Joseph
There is never a strict requirement to serve a mission for anyone. However, Priesthood-holding men around the ages of 18-25 are heavily encouraged because it is our duty as worthy Priesthood holders. Women have the option to serve, but are far less encouraged, as they have less of a doctrinal duty to serve. Show more Show less

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Joseph
We can increase our faith through prayerful study and prayer, but also through living our day to day lives so that we can see the influence of Jesus Christ every day and in everything. Show more Show less

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Joseph
No, we don't worship him. We do however have a high regard/respect for him as a prophet of God, just as many Christians reverence the prophets of old, such as Abraham, Moses, or Enoch. Show more Show less
