Hi I'm Josh

I grew up in Washington State. I enjoy writing poetry. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

When I graduated High School it wasn't that long before I went out and got a job. I didn't find much joy in school but was lucky enough to find a really cool place to work. Over the last few years I've helped in various facets of the manufacturing process. I have inspected, built, and tested circuit boards for almost six years now. The attention to detail is often a point of pride for me as I work towards making reliable and high quality products. Outside of work, I am really active within my ward, and since I live in a college town I've been able to meet a lot of university students and gotten to know a lot of unique and interesting people. From these experiences I've found that the small town life is perfect for me. Getting to know people, working hard, and serving others has largely defined my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because life hasn't always been easy. I have struggled with depression and have often found little meaning or purpose in life. These struggles were a large part of the reason why I spent so many years of my life outside of the Mormon church despite having been raised in a family of faithful members. But there came a point in my life where I had to decide how it was that I was going to live. That simple desire has changed my life forever. As I searched to find the things that I believe I met with the Mormon missionaries. They encouraged me and helped me to learn more about this church. The messages and teachings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ have given me a greater understanding of the reasons for my many trials. I have gained a greater knowledge of life's purpose, my potential, and of God's love for each of us.

How I live my faith

I spend much of my time serving others, and it has been a great blessing. Due to the responsibilities of my calling I often find myself the first to arrive and the last to leave. I focus on making others feel welcome and taking care of some of the administrative tasks so that the other leaders can focus less on paperwork, and more on the people.
