Hi I'm Ian

I grew up in Delaware and Maryland. I love sports and computers. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Salisbury, Maryland and grew up in the small town of Delmar, Delaware. Growing up I played soccer a lot and still love it even though I'm not very good at it and don't play it as often anymore. I am currently 21 and serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which has helped me develop my faith in Christ and the role he plays in bringing happiness to my life. After my mission I will be attending BYU-I and will major in computer IT since one of my great loves is of computers and how they work. I have two older sisters who are married and a younger brother who is in high school. I have two loving parents who I am thankful for having supported me my entire life, even if we don't always agree on everything. I look forward to the future and learning from my past.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a Mormon. My mother was also always a member, but my father converted to this church. Having grown up in the church, I know a lot about it and what it teaches but there have been times where I was not so sure if everything was true. The reason I still am a member is that I have found through prayer and scripture study that the things that are taught in this church are Christ's teachings and that it has brought me more happiness in my life than anything before. I want everyone to be able to know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Christ's church on the earth again and that he is leading it and that we will come closer to Him by living it's teachings.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary for our church. What that means is that I leave my home for 2 years to teach others about Christ and help them come closer to Christ by helping them develop faith in Him and in his Gospel. I teach about our church and why Christ is important in our lives. Another thing that I do is providing service to those who need it and to be as helpful as possible to those around us.
