Hi I'm Ireland

I am from Bountiful Utah, I am a Mormon, and I have been called to serve the people of Washington DC as a full time missionary!

About Me

I began to take an interest in the church around the age of 13, as I started attending church I grew to love all that it taught and made me feel. I would share those things with my family and they slowly started coming with me, after having the missionaries over we were able to be sealed together in 2014. It has been a blessing to watch my family members grow their own testimony throughout our conversion process and I continue to see them grow everyday. My family is very physically active, my siblings and I all play sports, for family activities we go boating, camping, snowmobiling or anything exciting really! Like any other family, we have our struggles, but we depend on each other and we push through. My family is my everything.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon for two main reasons: 1 because this gospel only teaches good things and 2 because I know there is a God. As you will come to learn through the teachings of the LDS church is that we have a loving father in heaven who created this beautiful world for us, he has given us the opportunity to live here on earth and to have our free agency. With that agency we have the opportunity to choose between right and wrong, that opposition scares a lot of people, but our Heavenly Father loves us and has created a plan to help us overcome our mistakes. He sent is son, Jesus Christ, to atone for our sins. With that beautiful gift we have the opportunity to repent of our wrong doings and to try again to be better, everyday I wake up so happy knowing that I don't have to be perfect because I am so far from it. Following the teachings of this gospel has helped me see the type of person I want to become, it has shown us a way to find happiness, and has given my family and I so many blessings. Being apart of this church has made me feel so much love, from the wonderful members, the opportunities to serve others, and from the plan of happiness our father created so we can return to live with him. This is Christ restored church, everyday I feel that is true... I truly love sharing this happiness with others!

How I live my faith

Everyday is a new day to be better, that is how I live my life, each day I try to follow Christ example with how I think, speak, and act. By focusing on these things I am able to strengthen my faith daily as I choose to follow the perfect example, at times I have made wrong choices and suffered the consequences, but from there I have learned and taken that knowledge to better myself. I have also had a few opportunities to serve in my ward by teaching Sunday classes and planning youth events, they have been wonderful learning opportunities for me and I hope I was able to make an impact on those who participated as well.
