Hi I'm Joel

I grew up in Nevada and California, and moved to Utah to finish my senior year of high school. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love watching Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. I love spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy playing Ultimate Frisbee. I am also an Eagle Scout. I enjoy to spend time in the outdoors, especially camping and hammocking. I love to read, particularly fantasy or science fiction.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because being a Mormon makes me happy. I enjoy the safety, protection, and guidance that is made possible through following the Lord Jesus Christ and His servants on the Earth today. I know that President Thomas S. Monson is a true and real prophet in these days. He receives revelation from Jesus Christ in regards to the direction The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints should go. I know that our Heavenly Father loves each and every one of us. He has provided countless tools for us to come back and live with Him for the eternities. One such tool is The Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is true. It contains the fullness of the Gospel and by reading and applying it, we can live better lives, focused on the Savior. I am a Mormon. I know it! I live it! I love it!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by daily small deeds. I pray, read the scriptures, and help those around me daily. I participate in and help perform our weekly Sacrament services. I visit with a few families in my community monthly to check in on how they are doing and share a message with them. I live my faith both inwardly and outwardly. I am going to more fully live my faith for the next two years by serving a mission for the Savior Jesus Christ in the wonderful country of Japan!
