Hi I'm Ian.

I'm a motorcycle Enthusiast, a carpenter,a missionary ,I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from Idaho, I love outdoor activities such as Dirt biking, hunting, and camping. I grew up in the Mormon Faith, and have seen great blessings from it. I also work construction, mostly remodeling, and building new homes. I love working with wood, and constructing a beautiful home. Jesus Christ has showed me the perfect example, in all aspects, including carpentry work. I truly love seeing a job finished with quality. Especially a remodel of an old house, which can be turned into a brand new, fresh smelling home. I have been able to see this with peoples lives, as I am serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. By sharing the restored Gospel it has truly shaped and refined peoples life's for the better. I could find no better work, than inviting others to come unto Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I know the Book of Mormon is true!!

How I live my faith

I grew up in a highly Mormon populated area, so you can say i was surrounded by my own. But there are still people who give into temptations, so I still faced the tough temptations of the world. It's a little harder as well, because there seems to be a lot more gray area when you live in an area like this. These gray areas came through rules being bent slightly, until it no longer seemed it was a sin. It felt OK doing these things, because people of your same religion were doing them as well. So they were believed to be OK. But I saw that as I tried as hard as I could to keep those standards i had been taught, I was respected. Working construction brings about people who had different morals of myself, but I saw as I was willing to follow Jesus Christ, and his commandments they accepted me. I even saw them change through my example.  I am currently serving as a representative of Christ's church, I go around in upstate New York, and tell people that the fulness of the Gospel is restored!

What is Mormonism? OR What do Mormons believe?

Ian.
After centuries of Darkness the original Truths of God the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the Earth, by a Loving Father in Heaven, and through his prophet Joseph Smith. Convincing evidence of this great blessing, is the Book of Mormon. Which you can hold in your hand, read ponder, and pray with sincerity if its true. Show more Show less

How is the Book of Mormon different from the Bible? How did Joseph Smith obtain the “golden plates” or Book of Mormon?

Ian.
 The Book of Mormon is a separate Record of Holy Scripture. It contains the Fulness of the everlasting gospel. Through it we can obtain a testimony that Joseph Smith is Prophet of God, and the Church of Jesus Christ has been restored to the Earth today. Joseph was guided by Moroni, a resurrected personage, to the Hill Cummorah. Where he found the plates.  Show more Show less
