Hi I'm Josh

I am a college student studying film production and digital media and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I currently am going to college for film production and digital media. I love it! Filming and editing has always been a hobbie of mine. I also love fishing. Fishing is my number one sport. I currently live at home with my parents and a younger sister, and yes I cant leave out my dog.

Why I am a Mormon

I am what you call "born into the church". Meaning that My parents were both LDS. My father was a convert to the church when he was 14 and my mother was "born into the church" as well. Just because I was raised LDS doesn't mean I automatically knew this was the true church or that this was where God wanted me to be. Ultimately I had to find out for myself that this was true on my own. Growing up I always participated in the youth group of the church. I am lucky to say that I have loving parents who raised me in a way that allowed me to build my own testimony and stand on my own two feet. I always looked to them as an example. I feel that they are the biggest reason I know for myself these things are true because of the example they set for me in knowing I needed to pray for myself and search the scriptures to find out. Well I did just that. I prayed and read the scriptures and experimented on the words as Alma would say. I know that Christ lives and that he loves us. I know that he died for us so that we being our imperfect selves can be made perfect through him. I know that he suffered all our our pains, trials, temptations, afflictions and more. I know God lives as well, and that he is our Father, our Heavenly Father and we are all his children. What a wonderful thing to know. I know as well that the church was restored today through the prophet Joseph Smith. That he truly say God the Father and his Son, Jesus Christ that spring morning that he went and prayed to know of which church he should join. That through him they restored the Christ original church that was lost over time. I know that the priesthood is once again here on the earth today, and that saving ordinances such as baptism and receiving the Gift of The Holy Ghost are performed in Christs name. I know that we have living prophet today. Just like those that we read about in the Bible and Book of Mormon, and that we have twelve apostles just like those called of Christ when he was here on the earth. God is our Father and Christ Lives!

How I live my faith

I live my faith one day at a time. Each day as I wake up, to when I put my head on my pillow at night, and then even in between. I served a mission in 2006-2008 and those were the best two years of my life. I was able to talk to people and share what I had found to be true and share with them something that could change their life for the better.
