Hi I'm Euan

I was born and bred in Scotland. I am a Product Design Engineer. I am married and have two daughters. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the 3rd eldest in a family of 8 children. I live in the English cotswolds but was born and raised in Scotland. I love being outdoors and try to spend as much time as I can in nature, growing up in Scotland was good for that. I enjoy playing and watching sports of all types and I am passionate about music (The Beatles, CSNY, M.Ward, & Bod Dylan are regulars on my playlist). I have always been interested in how things work so I decided to become a product design engineer for a living. I obtained a Masters of Engineering Degree and currently work designing household appliance products. I served a mission for the LDS church in the England London South Mission which It provided me with an opportunity to serve and share my beliefs with people. I am grateful for that experience as it taught me a lot about other people and myself. I like to spend my free time with my wife and children going out on family adventures such as exploring castles, going on walks, and generally being in the beautiful nature that surrounds us.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the church because I have sought out to know of its truth through personal prayer and scripture study and my heart has been touched by the spirit of God on many occasions confirming that it is true. Having seen the beauty of the earth and the things that are in it I cannot believe that it was not created by a higher power. There are many things we do not fully understand but I have faith that there is a God, that we are His children and He has a plan for us that will enable us to be with our loved ones forever. The church doctrine on the eternal nature of the family speaks to my spirit and fills me with joy. I have felt the love of Jesus Christ in my life and believe that He sacrificed Himself so that I could be with my wife and children forever if I would follow Him. I know that Jesus Christ is my Saviour and that's why I am a mormon.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith in everything that I say and do. To me It is about following the example of Jesus Christ by showing love and care to anyone and everyone that I meet. I always strive to understand the situation that someone else might be in and give them the benefit of the doubt. I believe that we are all children of our Heavenly Father and because of that we are all special and have a divine potential, so I try to treat people with that in mind. I feel privileged to be a priesthood holder and the ward mission leader in my local ward. I have the opportunity of working closely with full-time missionaries and the church members to share the gospel with those who are searching for answers to life big questions. I have witnessed people letting the Saviour into their lives and it bringing them happiness and peace. I feel blessed to have a knowledge of God. My faith in Jesus Christ has helped me through difficult moments in my life and knowing that He is always there for me gives me hope that I can deal with anything that comes my way.
