Hi I'm Josh

I'm a missionary in the Utah Ogden Mission. I'm from Arkansas, I love music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old and am leaving to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on August 23. I'm going to Ogden Utah and speaking Spanish. I love to sing and play guitar and piano. I also love soccer, basketball, hiking and wake-surfing. I finished my freshman year at Brigham Young University before submitting my mission papers.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS church but I haven't just accepted other people's word for it that this Church is of God. I've prayed about it and I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, and that God has called prophets in these days to guide the Lord's people. The gospel gives me feelings of peace and happiness and I love living my life in accordance with God's laws even when it's hard. God has blessed me a lot and I know he loves me and all of His children infinitely and perfectly.

How I live my faith

I currently serve as a ward missionary and help teach the gospel and do service in my area with the full-time missionaries. I'm also serving as a Sunday School teacher for six year olds! I love teaching the little kids about how much Jesus loves them and both of these callings are helping prepare me for my two year full-time mission I have been called to serve.
