Hi I'm Joshua

I grew up in California. I'm an average Mormon.

About Me

I was always a book nerd. I don't really care for sports. I can make friends with anyone. I like looking out for others. My favorite hobby is reading fantasy books. My favorite author is Brandon Sanderson.

Why I am a Mormon

I've chosen to be a Mormon because of the message the church has. I love my family and friends so much! One of the main teachings of the church is the idea of eternal families. I can be with my family again after I pass away.

How I live my faith

I love participating in the many activities that my ward has to offer. I have bonded with everyone in my ward. I feel like they are family to me.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Joshua
The Atonement is the single most important event that has ever happened throughout the history of the world. Christ suffered in Gethsemane, and ultimately died on the cross so we could be forgiven of our many faults and have a chance to return to our Creator. Christ suffered every kind of affliction, so we don't have to suffer. We can repent of our mistakes and become clean. To utilize the Atonement to its fullest, we must have faith in Him, repent of our sins, be baptized in the name of Christ, and endure to the end. If we follow those simple steps, we will be blameless before God when we stand to be judged of our works. Show more Show less
