Hi I'm Joseph

I'm a native Floridian. I'm a Beekeeper. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Growing up in Florida you are surrounded by water. I love fishing and going to the beach. When I was young I spent several weeks each summer sailing along the Florida coastline. I studied Information Systems in college, but really missed spending time outdoors. I found a unique opportunity to change my worklife when I discovered honeybees in my backyard. I have received so many blessings by making small changes in my life, that ultimately have led to large changes in my perspective.

Why I am a Mormon

My father is responsible for introducing my family to the church. He spent years searching for the right church. He seemed to change churches every few years. So when he told me about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I didn't really listen. After several years I began to see improvements in my fathers life. My sister also began attending church and I saw that she was blessed. I decided to find out more about the church myself. I met with the missionaries. I studied the scriptures. Then I attended the church. I learned that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was different than any church I had attended before. It was peaceful for me, and I chose to become a member.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday by keeping the gospel as a guide for my life. I feel closer to our Heavenly Father when I obey his commandments. I feel better about myself and the work that I do. I know that I have a purpose in this world.
