Hi I'm Ian Alexander Shumway

I grew up in Utah. Graduated High School. About to go on a mission and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Born and raised LDS in Utah. Graduated High School 2016. After I serve my mission in Korea I will attend BYU. Things I did in High School; choir, orchestra, dance, swim, debate, lacrosse, was the mascot a couple times. Part of the Chess team. Took Japanese a couple of years. During the summer I worked at BSA day camp. Now that High School is over I am preparing to go on a mission. I leave Sep 7.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church and so I never really had a big conversion. It always made sense to live by what I had been taught. So I never really took any other life styles serious and never really thought to ask if the Book of Mormon or the Church were true, I just always knew that they were. But I had read that if I ask in faith whether they are true I will get an answer. So believing that I had a sincere heart I decided to get on my knees and pray earnestly if the Book of Mormon was the word of God. The answer I got back was why do I even need to ask, you already know.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by willing to serve others when ever I am needed.
