Hi I'm Isaac

I'm from Spokane, WA. I served as a missionary in Spain. Today I am a Lighting and Energy Consultant in Arizona and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Spokane into a wonderful family. I was blessed to be born into the Church and was raised strong in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Although I was a goofball most of my young adult life, I knew the Gospel was true and had been restored to the Earth. Because of this Testimony, I served the Lord as a Missionary in Spain between 2000 and 2002. I can honestly say that service was the best 2 years of my young life. After my Mission I married my beautiful wife Ashley in the Salt Lake City Temple in January of 2003. We met before my Mission at Especially For Youth (EFY) in Rexburg Idaho at BYU Idaho (FKA "Ricks"). We lived in Utah for our first 6 years together. We had little money to travel and splurge, but we had enough to start our little family. We now have 4 awesome children! Advancements in my career as a Lighting and Energy consultant have brought us to Arizona. We like it here but not loving the blistering heat. There are many wonderful people here and even many members and a new Temple being built in Gilbert, AZ. The Lord is blessing our family and I have witnessed his hand guide us as we choose the right and follow his teachings. I'm thankful for the Scriptures, Church Leaders, The Priesthood, Temples, Gospel Principles, A Prophet who guides us, my Family, My Testimony, and for the courage of Joseph Smith. I love life and enjoy being with those whom I love.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I've chosen to follow the guidance of the Holy Ghost in my life. I've read the Scriptures, Prayed, and asked if The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true Church on the Earth today and Heavenly Father has testified to me through his Spirit that it is. I cannot deny the confirmation that I've received and I know the teachings are true. I know that we have a Prophet who guides the Church under the direction of our Saviour Jesus Christ. I know men are called of God to lead the Church. I know the scriptures are true because I've taken the challenge given in the Book of Mormon in Moroni 10: 3-5 to read and pray about the Truth of the Scriptures and I have, in fact, received a witness that they are the Word of God and that Joseph Smith did translate them by the Power of God. I love the Church because what it provides me, teaches me, and allows me to serve others. I'm thankful for it and encourage those around me to pray about these things as well. It brings me enough happiness that I must share it!

How I live my faith

I live my Faith every day. I have some better days than others, but I know Faith is an action not just a belief. Every day I try to do my best at keeping Heavenly Father's Commandments and choosing the right. Sometimes I fall or fail, but because of Jesus Christ and his atoning Sacrifice, I'm able to pick myself up and press forward. I try to spend time each day reading the scriptures, praying, and teaching my Children to do the same. I know that making daily choices like that are what allow me to keep my Faith as well as grow my Faith.
