Hi I'm Ian Babcock

I grew up in California and Colorado, and I'm now living in Calgary, Canada. I'm a Mormon

About Me

Even Though I was born in Utah, I was rasied in California and Colorado. I lived all over California and in the Denver area of Colorado. Because my dad works in the construction buisness we moved around about every two years until we got to Colorado. There I went through high school and did a year of college. Right now my family lives in Calgary because of my dad's work. Despite living in Canada, I'm an American through and through. My intrests include video games, cars, music (and I can play the guitar), history, film, and the ocasional campout. I play video games because it's one of the ways that me and my brother have fun together, espescialy when we play racing games like Forza Motorsport. I like movies because it's more than just a form of entertainment, it's an art. History has always been fascinating to me, and I've always wondered if people back then knew the influence they would have on future generations. Even though most of my hobbies and intrests are indoor things, I love to go out and camp every once and a while. And when I mean camping I don't mean drive up in your car and trailer camping. I love to go out in the wilderness and just enjoy the unadultered landscape.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member of the church all my life. But I know that if I haden't been born into the church I would have never been a member, and wouldn't have knwon about God and the love he has for us. For a time I considered leaving the Church, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. What my family taught me kept me from leaving. They instilled in me an unshakable belief that this gospel and church is true, and that it is the only means whearby man can atain salvation. Now all I want to do is tell people about this pearl of great price. So I am currentley serving a mission in the great Idaho Boise Mission.

How I live my faith

Jesus Christ said "If ye love me, keep my commandments." And that's what I try to do. Because of Christ's personal sacrifice for me, I am able to be free from the guilt and shame from the mistakes I make in life. Because of this I feel obligated to serve him and to do my best in his gospel. And that's all he asks of us.
