Hi I'm Joseph

I was born and raised in California. I play football. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love football and hope to play in college someday. I love music and like to compose my own songs on the piano. I also love to draw.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised Mormon, however, I did have to find my own conviction and come to know that the Church was true. I have read the Book of Mormon, prayed, and attended church, and, as a result, I have seen the hand of God in my life. There is no doubt in my mind that this is the same church Christ established when He was here on the Earth. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that we have prophets to help us know God's will in these days.

How I live my faith

I have always lived true to my faith no matter what. There is something so important about living what you believe. Through my life, I have made sure to let people know that I am a Mormon. It is part of who I am and it effects everything I do and everything I say.

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

Joseph
We have been commanded not to partake of these substances. We do not know all the reasons. It may simply be to test our faith. In Moses' day, they were commanded not to eat pork, but there was nothing wrong with it. It was simply a trial of their faith at that time. Show more Show less
