Hi I'm Josh

i am a missionary, a son, a big brother, a music fan, computer and math nerd and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I am from arizona, i was raised in a small town and i have 7 younger siblings. I really enjoy music and messing around on the computer. I want to be a mechanical engineer and math is my strong point. I really enjoy doing lots of things, pretty much whatever i can find to do.

Why I am a Mormon

 i am a mormon because i know that this is the one and only true church of Jesus Christ with His authority. i was raised in the church but there came a point in my life where i had to decide if staying in the church and living the standards was what i really wanted to do or not. i thought about it a lot and through a lot of study and prayer i received an answer from God that this is his church and that i needed to continue in it. i know that the book of mormon is true and that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. i also know the bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly and i know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God. i am a mormon because i know these things to be true and i have seen the blessings that come in my life as i live the principles of the gospel.

How I live my faith

 there are many ways in which i live my faith. first of all i strive to live the commandments which, yes, includes no alcohol, tea, tobacco, coffee, drugs, sex before marriage, or any of that stuff, but it also includes reading the scriptures daily, praying daily, going to church weekly and being an active member, helping people out and sharing the gospel, which is really important to me currently as i am currently serving as a full time missionary for the church. i am serving in the greater Chicago area and i am working with hispanic people and teaching in spanish, it has been a great experience and i have learned and grown a lot but best of all i have had the opportunity to share what i know to be true with people and give them the opportunity to have the same blessings that i have had in my life in theirs!

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

 mormons help everyone! we believe in serving and helping everyone that we can because we are all brothers and sisters and children of our loving Heavenly Father, and we try and do our best to help everyone with their needs, whether they be spiritual or temporal. Show more Show less
