Hi I'm Ivan!

I grew up in California. I love to serve the Lord with all my might, mind, & strength. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I have lived in California all of my life, my parents, who were Catholics before, are converts to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I was born and raised in the church, I have loved being a Mormon so far, and plan to be forever. I have 3 brothers, 2 sisters, 2 step brothers, 2 step sisters, a half brother, and a half sister. I graduated from Nevada Union High School in 2012. I did a little bit of football and wrestling in high school. I chose to serve the Lord by serving a full-time mission because I know that is what Heavenly Father wants for me. I have been called to serve in the Tampa, Florida Mission. It has been a blessing! I love to exercise, wrestle, play football, soccer, basketball, baseball, do mixed martial arts, play piano, sing, cook, watch movies, watch television shows, be outdoors, draw, and be with my family and friends!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Lord has blessed me in so many ways in my life, my families lives, and my friends lives, even through hard times. He helps me remember of who I really am - His child and His disciple. He wants the best for me and each and every one of us, so that we can be perfect like Him and return to Him with our families forever. He has a plan for all of us. That's what keeps me going. That's why I am a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the things that the Lord expects of me: Reading the scriptures, praying with sincerity and real intent, attending church to partake of the sacrament, having charity, humility, obedience, love, and doing my best to be a light to others, so that they can glow as well.
