Hi I'm Joshua

I grew up in California and Oregon. I raced motocross, played baseball, and football. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have always been an outdoorsy kind of guy. Through all my sports activites, boy scouts, and church activities, I have been outside basically my whole life. I was born in southern California up until my senior year in high school which at that time I had moved to western Oregon. It was rather challenging leaving all my friends and some of my family. But through the church and my sports activities I as able to enjoy my last year in high school. Through the church I was able to strengthen my testimony as well as others around me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. My mother was a convert to the church, and her testimony is so strong. Because of her example to me I was able to grow my testimony and think about things that I wouldnt have normally pondered. I dont really know how to explain why I know the church is true. But I can tell you that I have special promptings and I get a feeling in my heart that I know that this church is true, and all the doctrine that is being taught, is true.

How I live my faith

I was able to share my knowledge with the younger youth of our church all the time. Wether I was teaching the youth or just talking to them, I was able to share my experiences. I have always held a leadership position in the church. I was able to plan many events for the youth in our church that had turned out to the fun, uplifting, and spiritual.
