Hi I'm Ian Harvey
I am an ex Marine, an Olympian, and am happily married with two kids.
Why I am a Mormon
I believe in the tenants of my religion. The evidence that I have seen supporting this belief vastly outweighs the evidence otherwise. I am grateful for the realization that we can read the scriptures, pray, and gain experiences for ourselves that we can use in forming our beliefs.
What blessings have come through your faith in Jesus Christ?
I believe in what Easter stands for. In other words, I believe that Jesus Christ died and then three days later walked the earth again as a resurrected being. I believe that He suffered and bled for my sins and made it possible for me to repent (to try my best to correct my mistakes). If I do this, and through His grace, I can have the chance for eternal life not only as an individual, but also as a family. I also know that I and my loved ones are in His hands. That he loves me and even if something happens that is not what I would have wanted, it is OK. Everything will work out eventually through the grace of God so long as I have faith and try my best. For this reason, Easter is my favorite day of the year. This knowledge makes me deeply happy even in circumstances that might not be what I had hoped for.
How I live my faith
I look for and act on opportunities to help others. I try to see things from other peoples' perspective. I try to recognize and be grateful for the good things in my life. I am thankful to have great friends from other faiths.
