Hi I'm Joshua O'Brien

I am from bradford, England. I do a sports course at college before my mission. I’m a Mormon.

About Me

I’m a 18 years old from England and have been a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints my whole life. I like spending time with my friends, going to the gym and playing sports. I do a sports course at college and after my mission hope to go to university to study sports psychology.

Why I am a Mormon

There are loads of reason why I am a member of this church and i could talk about this all day but I’m just going to keep it short. I’m a member because I see everyday how the church blesses my life and the lives of these around me. The church brings so much joy and happiness to my life and the life of my family. It’s not always easy to be a Mormon because the world has different standards to us and when everyone around you are acting a different way and doing different things to you it’s not easy to stay strong but I know that if we do stay strong then we will be blessed for that.

How I live my faith

Some of the ways that I try to live my faith is by doing the small and simple things first and then working on the bigger things. I try to read my scriptures and prey everyday to keep the sport with me. I also try to help out by teaching the young men in ward when ever I am asked to do so. In my ward I organise the ward football for all the guys in the ward.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Joshua O'Brien
We are asked to give 10% of what we earn because our heavenly fatter has given us everything that we have so this 10% is just us saying thank you for him letting us keep 90%. The 10% is needed to pay for the church and everything that the church needs to pay for. An example of something that the church pays for it the church building. Show more Show less
