Hi I'm Joshua Mark Ellermeier

I grew up in North Carolina but we moved to Utah when I was eight. I want to become an animator/voice actor soon. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently 18 years old. In about 6 days I leave for my mission. I enjoy drawing cartoon characters and reading fictional books. I love what YouTube has to offer. I am an Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America. I recently graduated high school. I hope to attend BYU and start a 2-D animated cartoon on their television channel.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. Both my parents were the strongest members of their families. Their influence really grew on me and I personally choose to be this way. I believe in God and I believe the closer I am to Him, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost, the greater chance I have of keeping the happiness I receive on Earth, forever. I testify that 18 years and beyond of living in the LDS church has saved me from the horrors of what the world would have made me. And I hope all have a chance to hear what the Lord has to say.

How I live my faith

I was the Deacon's Quorum President and Teacher's Quorum President. And finally the Priest's Quorum First Assistant. Every night before bed I read 5 pages of my 4-books-in-1 scripture set, say a prayer before performing any task great and small, and say yes to every opportunity to serve in my ward.
