Hi I'm Isaac

I've lived all over the Pacific Northwest in America. I am serving in the California, Long Beach Mission. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I did service with Hospice groups, Hospitals, and Orchards. I worked with my Mom's Pet Foster business, and helped her give pets new homes to live in. I love going out with my friends and finding small locally owned shops and restaurants. I love playing games, having a good laugh with friends, and listening to Metal. I love to read. like, a ton. I love the mountains and forests I was raised in, and I have grown to love the desert I lived in before I came out on my mission. I loved helping with foster pets, and working with animals. I love movie trivia, photography, digital editing, relaxing outdoors, and trying new food. I love old movies (Marx Brothers!) I'm always up for trying something new, and I love having fun! Sometimes I can be a bit... mischievous, but I don't mean any harm! I enjoy being able to take time to reflect and ponder on things in life. Those quiet moments of peaceful pondering are moments I deeply appreciate.

Why I am a Mormon

I may have been "born into the fold," but that never stopped me from questioning religion and seeking after truth. I came to know the Church is true after reading the scriptures and praying. I found that the Bibles teachings agreed with that of The Book of Mormon and the Doctrine and Covenants and Pearl of Great Price (additional scripture unique to our church) I found within all of these scriptures the same Gospel, the same Savior, the same Principals and Commandments, the same spirit of Inspired Revelation that accompanies Truth. What more can I say? I know it is true because I sought after the Truth and prayed to know.

How I live my faith

I do community service, I live as an example to people around me, and I am currently serving an LDS Mission. I help animals get adopted to good homes. I take the responsibility of being a good steward over the Earth seriously. Additionally, I try to really assimilate the daily aspect of a religious life- study, prayer, doing my best to be an example- the small things which build into great things.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Let me tell you a bit about my Grandmother. She was born and raised in the Mormon church, and was active her whole life. My Grandmother raised 7 children, ran a farm, and held church callings. When Coyotes attacked the animals, she was the first person out the door with the Rifle firmly in hand. My grandmother carried a Concealed Weapons permit, rode horses, went 4 wheeling, hiked mountains, she spoke her mind, and was always active. To me, that's what a "Mormon Woman" is like.
