Hi I'm McLane

I grew up in Oregon. I'm and eagle scout. I'm an athlete. I'm a student. I'm a missionary. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've lived in Oregon most my life, and I am continually amazed by the beauty and grace of God's creations. Needless to say, I enjoy the outdoors, athletics, swimming, mechanics, and building. I'm majoring in mechanical engineering at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. I absolutely love it there, and I look forward to continuing my education after I finish my two year mission for the church in Argentina.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day saints because I have come to know that this church is the only source of true happiness, eternal happiness. I know for myself that the Book of Mormon is ancient scripture translated by the prophet Joseph Smith. That this book is evidence that Jesus is the Christ and that the Mormon church is the only true church with the restored gospel and the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And because this church is true, we have a living prophet leading and guiding us. I have had plenty of doubts and questions, but its critical to remember, that just because we have the fullness of the gospel doesn't necessarily mean we understand everything. However, I do know that with every question, there is more than a sufficient answer to keep the faith. The gospel is true, the book is blue. I invite everyone to put his or her faith in Jesus Christ and his atonement, for He is the way, the truth, and the life.

How I live my faith

Put simply, I live my faith by following the example and teachings of Jesus Christ.
