Hi I'm Joshua McBride

Raised in Utah. I am a Singer, Missionary, and a Dancer. But most importantly I am a Mormon

About Me

I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints, serving in the Canada Toronto Mission. Though I am a missionary, I love to sing, dance, and render service to all those who need it! I love history and dream of doing something in that field someday! I love my family and owe a whole lot to them! Being the youngest of four children, I have many examples to look up to! I love writing my friends and bearing testimony to them whenever I get the chance! I especially love seeing people change through the Atonement of Jesus Christ! That really brings me the most joy! I love designing buildings and love learning about cultures and histories! I also love learning about different religions and seeing the similarities with other religions and mine!

Why I am a Mormon

Though I have grown up being a Mormon, I truly gained a testimony when I was 17 years old. Upon the death of my Grandma, I knelt down and prayed to know if I would see her again! As I did so, I gained a spiritual witness of this divine truth! I knew that I would see her again! I am a Mormon because I have received a spiritual witness of its truthfulness! It is Christ's church! As well as it brings me comfort knowing that I can have a family forever! I love my family and would do anything for them! Through those temple ordinances I know I can do the greatest thing for them, and that is to bind myself with them, forever and throughout eternity! and better yet, I know that all this is possible because of our Savior Jesus Christ! I am Mormon, because by being in this church, I can become more like Christ!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a Missionary! I go about doing service for the community, attend my church meetings and invite others to come unto Christ! I teach the gospel principles which are the foundations of my faith in my ward! I also go and do family history, and try to learn who I am, where I am from and who my family members are/were! I also help others around me, learn about Jesus Christ! I love sharing my simple testimony with those around me whenever I get the chance! I also love studying from the Book of Mormon, which I know to be the word of God! Even though the things I do may not be large things, I know that by simple things, great things can come to pass!
