Hi I'm Ivan G B

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a happily married family man. I have three beautiful children that the Lord has blessed me with. I now live to serve the Lord, so you can imagine how wonderful my blessings are. I have everything that I need and more. I really think that I am "living the dream". The Lord is very much in my life. I have a wonderful job and amazing friends. I have the best parents that anyone could ever want. A loving family that loves and cares so much. My life is total bliss, of course I have my challenges. It is whats turning me into the person I want to be. A spiritually strong person with a understanding and knowledge of my Father In Heaven.

Why I am a Mormon

As I learn more of this Gospel I find myself Loved and full of His Grace. I get a spiritual fill every-time that I seek it. The answers I need to know just by going to church. I have found myself being guided by his Holy Spirit. I know with every fiber of my being that, this is where he wants me to be. I know that this church is true. That Jesus Christ is at the head of it, directing this very organized church. I feel the spirit tell me these things are all practiced under His Guidance and Authority. I now feel much of this joy that he wants us to have. I know that Jesus Christ lives, He loves and cares for us all... Even the sinners. He desires us to all make it back to our Loving Father In Heaven. He has suffered, and died on the cross for every person that has lived on this earth. He is your Savior but you must repent and allow him to play his part in your life. He is full of grace and nothing is too bad that you can't turn to him. No matter what you may have done, He loves you and cares about you. He was chosen and sent here by a Father who is merciful, compassionate and loving. A Father who wants the best for his children, and blesses them to be all that they can be. I know that if we seek Him out we will find him. That he can bring true gems that money can not buy. A peace that can be ever lasting. A joy that is true and eternal. I know that families can be together forever. That we can learn and understand some of the greatest questions of all time. Like "If a man dies will he live again"? I now know my purpose in life. I understand the role of my Savior, of my Father in Heaven and of you Brothers and Sisters. This gospel is everlasting. If you follow the teachings you will find true bliss for the eternity's. I know that we have a prophet among us now. Just as in the day's of the old. Thomas S. Monson is a living prophet in our day. I have prayed and received my answer. I know that Joesph Smith is a true prophet. That though him the Lord has replaced the fullness of his Gospel. The Priesthood and Authority to do work in His Holy Name. I know that the church leaders and teachers are truly called of God. The people may not be perfect but this Church is. I know that following the commandments brings freedom, joy, and blessing in to your life. Living this Gospel has made me such a better person. More of the person that Our Father In Heaven desires me to be. Brothers and Sisters the Lord knows each and every one of us. Better then we know ourselves. If we put our trust in him, with complete Faith, we will never be led astray. We can always make the correct choices.But we must also understand that he knows whats best for us. For without him we are nothing. I hold my membership of this church as one of my greatest blessings. I testify these things to you in His Holy name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I'm not perfect, or even close to the person I want to be. As I learn more of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I practice these things I know to be true. I find myself free and happy with everything in my life. I've been blessed for following the Commandments and living the Word Of Wisdom. It is a true joy to be completely free. I am in control of my life, I wasn't always this way. I use to be in a bad spiritual place. It was a place of darkness, there was no light around. The Lord found it necessary to give me a pure revelation. Where his spirit told me things I needed to know. Things that changed my life forever. I now have a very strong testimony and conviction of Jesus Christ. Brothers and Sisters he love us so much... It was witnessing this pure love that changed my world. I am so happy, I now have tears of joy on a daily basis. I am filled with His guidance, His inspiration and His Spirit. He has done so much for me, I know that he is my Savior. I strive to follow his footprints everyday, for I know that they will lead me back to our Father In Heaven. I will continue to stretch myself as thin as I can trying to please him. It has brought me peace that has consumed me. True joy that money can not buy. It is the most desirable thing that a have ever partaken of. I want to spend the rest of my life sharing with people the happiness that the Lord can bring them. If you want to be happy in life, search your Savior out....Find him, and the closer that you get to him, the happier you will be. I AM LIVING PROOF.
