Hi I'm Joseph Lloyd

I grew up in Sandy Utah. I love rugby and behavioral science. I'm currently serving in the Sweden Stockholm mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love basketball and rugby more than almost anything else in the world! I will be playing rugby for my college after I finish serving in the Sweden Stockholm mission. I have two awesome little brothers and the best little sister. In college I will study behavioral science and Arabic. I love the criminal justice field, and I plan to one day be a behavioral analyst for the FBI.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church, so I always did what I was supposed to; I went to church, participated in all the church activities, and tried to live how I should. But I was mostly just going through the motions. My senior year of high school, everything changed. Through some personal experiences, I realized that I needed to be actively living the gospel. I realized that God has taken such good care of me throughout my life, and has given me everything I could ever need. I have developed a deep love for this gospel and what it can do. The things that bring me the most happiness and joy in my life are my family and friends, and if I can have the opportunity to live with them forever and be happy forever, then I will do whatever God asks of me. I firmly believe and know that this is Christ's church that He restored to the earth through Joseph Smith, and I firmly know and believe that everything we must know and do to receive eternal life with our loved ones is found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

God has given me so much, and has given me the opportunity to have eternal happiness and live with my loved ones even after death. Through the gospel of Jesus Christ, I have received more happiness than I ever thought possible. I want to share that happiness with everyone, and a mission is the perfect way for me to have that opportunity. So I currently serve as an unpaid volunteer missionary in the gorgeous country of Sweden! You can find me here for the next 2 years of my life!
