Hi I'm Ian Byington

I from Santa Cruz, California. I like to skateboard and write lyrics for songs. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a skateboarder. I love to make music. I am an Eagle Scout. I like to eat food and I am currently a missionary in the Spain Barcelona Mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a Mormon home, however that is not why I am Mormon today. I am a Mormon because I wanted to find out why some many of my loved ones and friends were so true to their faith. So I kept going to the church activities and I started to really read my scriptures. I even prayed to God to ask him why the church was so special and weather or not it was true. A few weeks passed by, then one night while I was reading my scriptures I got my answer. I was going through a hard time and I realized that every single part the church existed to benefit me and everyone else who would be touched by it. I also realized that I didn't find one thing in all of the scriptures ever in my life that I did not believe was true.I knew that the church was true and I felt the truth throughout my whole body. I still get that feeling when I ask questions or when I hear other people tell me of their knowledge of its truthfulness. I am a Mormon because I asked and worked for my answer and I can't deny what I know to be true.

How I live my faith

Well right now I am serving as a full time missionary in Barcelona! I get to walk the streets every day and share Gods message with his children. I also get to do service in the community and meet with people in their homes and in our church to share beliefs.

In whom should we have faith?

Ian Byington
We should have faith in God! He is our loving Heavenly Father who knows all things and knows us better than we know ourselves! He has the power to do all things why wouldn't we have all faith in him? Show more Show less
