Hi I'm Joshua

I am a newly graduated high school student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love all sports and outdoors things. I especially love to rock climb and backpack. I'm on a mission now but I will be going to college after.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church but that is not why I am a Mormon. I'm a Mormon because through everyday life experiences I've come to see that the teachings of the church are true. I seek to follow Jesus Christ as best I can and I know the best way is through being an active member of this church.

How I live my faith

In high school I lived my faith by going to seminary (similar to Sunday school) every day before school, attending church on Sunday, and playing an active role in my youth group. I now live my faith by serving a two year mission. My entire life for those two years will be centered around serving God and living my faith.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

No one is required to serve a mission. Young men are strongly encouraged to do so because it is considered their duty to serve a mission however they are not forced. It is less of responsibility for women to serve a mission but it is still looked upon highly to serve though if a girl feels that she should serve or not is between her and God. Show more Show less
