Hi I'm Ian

I have 5 siblings. I love baseball. I'm an Eagle Scout. I'm a missionary in the Scotland/Ireland Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love baseball. I love to read. I love to smile. I love to make others happy. I am the 3rd child out of 6. And I am currently serving in the best mission in the world, the Scotland/Ireland Mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I am not a convert. I was born into the Church, meaning my parents were members when I was born (they are still active members). I have been greatly blessed to live in a time when the gospel has been fully restored back on the earth. I am blessed to have a family who love Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, and who live the teachings of His gospel. If I didn't have the gospel in my life, I know I would be lost out there looking for the truth. I have been given this glad tiding of great joy-and what a great blessing to have-and I am proud to share His gospel with others. I know Heavenly Faher wants His children to be happy. I know Jesus Christ lives and that He is the Savior of the World. Both Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ loves each and everyone of us. I know that this is the true Church because I have prayed about it and have received my answer.

How I live my faith

There is only One Perfect Example that I strive to follow and that is Jesus Christ. He has showed us how to live. One of the things that He taught about was love. I always try to view others as my brothers and sisters because we are all Heavenly Father's children and if I look at them as He looks at them, then it'll be easier for me to do as the Saviour would do, to say as He would say, and to think how He would think. I love helping people out! I get great joy whenever I help someone- whether it be sharing the gospel, helping them move house, smiling at them, making them laugh, etc. Service is one of the best ways that we can develop the pure love of Christ, which is the love of God and of all people! Christ's life was a life of service. I know that if we all emulate His example, we will become more like Him.

Are Mormons Christians?

Ian
Yes, Mormons are Christians. The official name of the church is called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We believe in Jesus Christ and that he is the Savior of the World. We also believe he has suffered and died for us so that we can repent of our sins and return to our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
