Hi I'm Ian

I'm 100% British, born in Canada, raised in Georgia (USA), and as of 2010 I'm a Mormon .

About Me

I was born in Canada, and I grew up in Georgia. Georgia is what I would refer to as "home". I love playing any sport, but my favourites are soccer, tennis, and golf. If I set my mind to something, I normally don't quit until I finish it. My friends and family are the most important people in my life, and there isn't anything I would not do for them. Most of my friends would probably class me as "goofy" or "silly", but I am serious when need be. I love to laugh and make others laugh, I certainly believe it is the best medicine. Serving in the church is a new found passion of mine, and I am thankful for all the opportunities I have to help out. I am going to BYU.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized in June of 2010, and I would have never guessed i would become a member of this church a year ago. However, I am extremely pleased with my decision to join the church, I couldn't be happier! I never considered myself a bad kid, in fact i always thought I was a good kid who made good decisions. Then i met someone who absolutely astounded me by the fantastic example she set, there was something "different" about her that caused her to stand out. She made me want to be a better person, and when i found out she was Mormon i had to look into it to see what it was all about. So i went online and ordered a free Book of Mormon. When the missionaries came to my house i was a little shocked i kind of just expected to get the Book in the mail, but no i skeptically sat down with the missionaries and listened to the lessons they taught. Through praying and asking if what i read in the Book of Mormon was true, i came to find out that it was true. Having both my friend and the missionaries teach me was a true blessing, and i could not be more thankful for the work they do trying to get Heavenly Fathers message out. My testimony continues to grow each and every day, and i know of the love that Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father have for all of us, and that love causes a happiness that is unfathomable. I hope that i can continue to work each day to increase my knowledge of the gospel and become a better person.

How I live my faith

I try my best to do all i can to help out in church, whether it is going on team ups with the missionaries, cleaning the church, or even helping out someone in need. I love talking about the gospel with people, and i find there is no better way to gain knowledge than by teaching what you know to someone else. I pray and read scriptures everyday, and at church I do my duties as a member of the priesthood .... that is how i live my faith.

What is being a Mormon like?

To me, it is the best thing I could have ever dreamed of. As a member you experience so much joy and love. Not only do you feel heavenly fathers undying love, but also the love of all other church members. As a member you may face many trials and hardships, but overcoming them makes you stronger and builds your faith tremendously. Show more Show less
