Hi I'm Joe Hawkins

I grew up in Las Vegas. I play piano, guitar, and sing a lot. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Joe, I am 18 years old and from Utah. I enjoy playing Guitar and Piano, singing, hiking, reading, and swimming. I'm currently serving a mission, and afterwards plan to attend college at BYU to study Computer Science. I love technology, music, and above all my family. They help me strive to work hard, build others, and have fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that this church is true. I have a testimony of Joseph Smith as a prophet of God. He was God's key to restoring the fullness of the Gospel on the Earth. I know that my Savior, Jesus Christ, loves me and died for me, so that I can overcome trials and challenges in my own life. Oftentimes I am not strong enough to overcome the things I deal with in my day to day life, but as I put faith in Jesus Christ and the enabling power of his Atonement I am able to be lifted and given strength to accomplish anything that God gives me. Just like it says in 1 Nephi 3:7, God doesn't give us anything that is impossible, or that is above our capability to overcome when we have faith in the Savior.

How I live my faith

I'm living my faith through Missionary Service in the London, England Mission. While at home I tried to consistently do visiting teaching, and assisted in my quorums to help other young men also become mission ready. I do not fully know what lies ahead of me in London, but I am excited and have faith that God will direct my path.
