Hi I'm Joe Gibb

I grew up in Utah. I love movies. I'm an average human life form. I'm a Mormon

About Me

My name is Joe. I really love art, especially movies. I am potentially obsessed with cinema as an art form and I spend a lot of time watching analyses of film and literature. I would not be considered highly intelligent or popular. I enjoy being alone but I have too many siblings to count. I have attended university. I love to have deep and thought provoking discussions about religion, art, politics, and any other topic that probes the depth of a person or persons. I hate small talk. My favorite musical artists are The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Beach Boys, and Max Richter. My favorite filmmakers are Stanley Kubrick, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorcese, Guillermo Del Toro, and Alfred Hitchcock. I like comics but don't know enough about them to be *that* guy. I dunno what else I should write so I'll end it here.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is not in the business of doing bad. I may not have complete and utter knowledge of every piece of the gospel and I am aware that I don't understand many of the more intricate and precious parts of the gospel. The organization of the church leads people to better lives and provides a community of love and friendship that lifts up and helps others. I am striving to know and believe more and I hope to find more faith the more that I live.

How I live my faith

I love to talk to God. I love feeling like there is another person who wants to hear from me as much as I want to hear from them. I am a member of my Elder's Quorum Presidency. I love my home teaching families and I am so blessed to be able to hear from them every month when I go to visit them. I will be serving a mission in the coming months and will be very excited to learn what that will be like.
