Hi I'm Ian

I live for theatre, I love The Lord, I'm a Missionary, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born in southeast Texas. I graduated high school with high honors in theatre. I love acting and breaking away from having to be myself. (Not that i don't love being myself too.) I am currently serving a mission in the California Sacramento Mission. I greatly appreciate the wonderful opportunity to be here serving these people and serving The Lord. A true Texas boy, I enjoy biking, camping, hiking and singing.

Why I am a Mormon

I didn't find out why I was a Mormon until my mission. Here I have gained a love for studying the gospel and I know now how much I can grow from it. Before, I guess I struggled with why I believed. I knew I believed but I would never have been able to tell you why. Now I know. It is because of my Savior Jesus Christ. It is because of His sacrifice for me and you and everyone. It is because I have a Father who loves me enough to suffer watching His favorite, most beloved Son die for the rest of us. I have a great love for my Father in Heaven and what He has gone through for me to be happy, and I love Jesus Christ for loving me enough to do what he did for us. I have a powerful witness of the power of the atonement and why it had to happen. I love being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Right now i live my faith by serving the people of Sacramento. I have given two years of my life over to the Lord to help further his work. I love to help people come closer to God and know more of their relationship with him. This is my purpose. I have always loved to serve in the church. Even when i didn't want to go to church, I found I was happiest when I was there and doing things church related. I suppose I try to live my faith by being an example and lifting other people to the joy I have found in the gospel.
