Hi I'm Josh

Husband to the greatest woman on earth. Father of four amazing kids. Simple man. Happy Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Ohio. I attended college (undergraduate in History and MBA for grad school) at BYU in Provo, Utah. I met my wife Natalie during college. I thought she was pretty special back when we married, but the longer we're together the more I realize just how lucky I am to have her in my life. She is the perfect mother to our 4 amazing children. I'm a big BYU sports fan. Probably more than is good for me... Our family has lived in Utah, California, and Arizona. We lived most of our lives as a family in Texas, but our current home is in North Carolina. We love the four seasons of NC, but we miss Texas BBQ!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised Mormon and I'm grateful for how my faith has shaped me throughout my life. In any religion, there comes a time when you have to decide for yourself if you really believe what you have been taught. I do. Truly and fully. I credit every good thing I have experienced in my life to a loving Father in Heaven and His son Jesus Christ who bless me through my membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We, as Latter-Day Saints, are not perfect, but I have always felt the religious principles of our faith are perfect. I am a better husband, father, friend, employee, and disciple of Jesus Christ than I could ever imagine being without my faith.

How I live my faith

My faith inspires me to try to become a better person every day. I love Jesus Christ. He is at the center of my life and faith. I try my best to say and do what I think He would say and do if He were in my place. At home. At work. Everywhere. This is a tall task and I constantly fall short, but He is my hero, and I keep trying. I'm grateful beyond words for Jesus Christ and what He has done for me.
