Hi I'm Ireland

I am a missionary. I am the only member in my community. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have three younger brothers and an amazing mom and dad. My Grandma's and Grandpa were converts to the church and I am so grateful for their faith. I graduated a K-12 school of about 100 students total, not just in my class. I have enjoyed playing basketball and tennis with my bestfriends. I LOVE scary movies, even if they are crappy I will still watch them with my mom. I will be leaving Dec. 5th 2017 to go to Mexico City to serve in the Mexico City West mission. I have always known that I wanted to serve a mission but did not know if I would have the opportunity until the age for women was changed to 19. After that moment I knew with every ounce of my being that I would be serving a mission for my Lord and the gospel that I have grown to love. I am so excited to devote a year and a half to my gospel in order to help others feel the same love that I do.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know with an a surety that there is no better way to live your life and be close to God. I love my gospel and it has supported and helped me all through out my life. I have prayed and received a testimony of the Book of Mormon and the truthfulness of the restoration of the gospel. I see the changes the gospel has made in my family and I know those changes could have only come through God. I know that the gospel is true and that the path I am on today is the path that my Heavenly Father wants me to live. I know that through sincere prayer and scripture study everyone can gain a testimony of the gospel.

How I live my faith

I go to a smaller LDS church so it feels more like family. I loved serving in my young women's group as a class president. I was able to work with and help all the younger girls in my church showing them love at all times possible. I also helped in organizing many service activities and dances for the youth to participate in. Now that I have graduated I teach nursery which is a class of students from 2-3 years old. They are absolutely the highlight to my week. I get to teach them about Jesus Christ and how their families will be able to stay together for all eternity.
