Josh is ALL moved in

It has been a full week since I moved into my new apartment, and I LOVE it. It is so much room . . . plus having a washer and dryer is amazing. I took some photos of what inside looks like now.

I finally got the key to my new apartment - TAKE A LOOK!

I will be MOVING this weekend! My landlord finally got me the key today. I am super excited. I just took these photos, so you can see what my new pad looks like.

Spin Class

I have been doing spin classes at the gym for 6 years now. It is one of my favorite cardiovascular exercises to do. In a week, we will be doing a special fitness report on WATE-TV. I am doing a segment on spin class, and dragged our morning anchor Tearsa Smith to do it with me. It was her first time to go. She quit half way through, but it's going to be an awesome story. It will air on February 18 at 7 p.m. on 6 Around Town.

Josh's New Apartment

I haven't posted anything in a loooong time, so I thought I would do a little update on my life.

I signed a new 2-year contract at WATE-TV, so it looks like I will be in Tennessee for a few more years. I really love my job, and Knoxville is a great place to live. I think I will enjoy being here for a little while longer. This will be my first time to stay in one for longer than two years in quite awhile.

I am also getting a new place to live. An apartment opened up in my current building, and my landlord gave me first dibs on it. It is three times larger than where I am now. I will finally have a washer and dryer hook-up, which will be super nice. I really like my neighborhood, and it's super nice being only one minute from work. I finally will have room to invite people over. A studio apartment is small.

Besides work, church keeps me busy. Last night, I organized a missionary blitz. We have four missionaries in our ward, so I got three more members to come out, so we could canvass a larger area. Along with being the ward mission leader, I teach Sunday School every Sunday. We have had six baptism since I have been in this calling, and one more planned for tomorrow night.

On another church note . . . I have asked to be part of a panel at the First Baptist Church Knoxville to talk about Mormons. My bishop and another member, who is part of public affairs, will join me. I am friends with the senior pastor at the church, and he asked me to come to talk about my faith. There will also be a professor of world religion, and a church historian there. It should be interesting. It is being held on February 15th.

Another thing I am really excited for is everyone coming over for Kelsey's graduation. I have the whole week off from work. I can't wait to show everyone around East Tennessee.

I hope everyone is doing well . . . call me if you ever need anything!
