Hi I'm Isaac

I grew up all over the western United States. I own several businesses. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am recently married. I love my wife and all that she does for me. I enjoy fishing, camping, hiking, shooting, snowboarding, whitewater rafting and pretty much anything outdoors. I am going to college studying physics but have taken a semester off due to my current situation. I love to invent things and am working on several things right now. I am a business man at heart and have started several businesses both nationally and internationally. I love to help people in any way that I can. Family is really important to me and I always try to make time for them and their needs first. I am grateful that I can work with great people in all aspects of my life to further whatever their particular dreams and goals are in life. I look forward to being a father someday and hope to be a great one. I grew up in a family with 6 kids and loved it. I always had friends even though we moved a lot.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the Church because my parents are memebers and I always went to church. Even though for many years I did not believe in God or that He had a Church. I was studying religions with the intent of proving them all false and that people shouldn't believe in them at all. I was fairly successful in my endeavors but could seem to prove that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was false which frustrated me. So then when I had a friend who decided that she wanted to know more about the Church I sat with her as she received the lessons from the missionaries and I decieded that I would do as they said. So I read the Book of Mormon again and knelt down and prayed about it. I was praying for several hours that night and really felt nothing. So I assumed that it wasn't true. But then the next day the missionaries taught another lesson to my friend and pointed out to her that an answer doesn't come quickly but on the Lord's terms and also that we have to make a great effort to know. So I decided to try again. So I prayed for several more hours that night and still felt nothing. After this I was discouraged and did not want to try again feeling that it wasn't true and that God certainly didn't exist because I had not received the promised answer. The missionaries later told me that unless the person is willing to accept the answer, an answer would not be provided. So I decided to try one last time. I knelt down that night and began to pray and after several more hours of praying to know if it was true or not, I received my answer. I felt an overpowering feeling of correctness and a buring in my bosom. I knew that that moment that the Church was true and that God does exist. From that moment on I have been able to express to anyone who wants to know that I truly do KNOW that Jesus Christ lives, that this IS His Church, and that it was restored to the earth by a prophet of God. I know that we have a prophet today and I thank my Father in Heaven for the truth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying always to help others. I love helping people. Sometimes I am asked to go and help people move or to help them build something that they are in need of and I always try to answer that call. I was called to go and serve the people in Peru as a missionary, to help them to learn about Christ and about the restoration of His church. I taught them about the how we have a prophet today and about the commandments. I helped them and served them in every way that I possibly could. I still today go and help families that are members of the Church and those who are not to have those things that they need. I try to help people to learn about Christ and the scriptures. I try to help them to set goals in life and to strive to achieve those goals whatever they may be. I try to help friends to have better marriages and families. I always hope that whenever problems arise, that I can be there for those who matter most in life, my family and friends but also all those around me in need.
