Hi I'm Lasse Ilskov

I live in Denmark. I own a television network called FamilieKanalen and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was taught righteous principals by my parents growing up in the countryside of Denmark. Being a scout I learned to have respect for Gods nature and through gymnastics I learned to appreciate my body. I served most of my mission in my own stake (a stake is an administrative area in the church) in Denmark and afterwards I was given a job by some of the church members in one of the cities where I had served.

Why I am a Mormon

I am still a Mormon because I have had so many spiritual experiences in my life confirming that it is true. Growing up I was the only member in my school and the other kids thought that I was weird because I believed in Jesus Christ, The Bible and all the other things I am taught in the church. So even though I was born and raised in the church I still as a teenager had to make a personal decision weather to stay with my faith or go do all the things my friends said was good and fun. After much consideration I concluded that all the spiritual experiences I had had was to strong to not believe, so I chose to stay active in the church and close to the Lord. That decision shaped my life, and I have never regretted it. Being a Mormon has positively impacted all areas of my life. I have a sense of direction and purpose. I feel loved by my friends and family. I have avoided many problems because I have been taught how to react. I have gotten a great job that I love. I feel close to my heavenly father. I have learned how to actively use prayer to get help and guidance in my life. But most of all, I have peace inside. All of this and much more I have gotten because I chose to stick to what my good parents taught me and what I felt deep inside my heart.

How I live my faith

Being the owner and the managing director of the television network called FamilieKanalen (The Family Channel) I feel fortunate to be able to work with something that also can strengthen the Lords kingdom. This is done by making programs that tries to promote good values without preaching. God keeps helping me in this work, and I feel so very blessed that he can use me as a tool in his hands. As an official calling in the church I am the Public Affairs representative with media as a speciality. My job is to help members be prepared before they appear publicly in media in Denmark.
