Hi I'm Rian
I just graduated High School and am in my second semester of a community college. I go everyday and other than school I hang out with my friends. I'm also on two sports teams a basketball team for my YSA ward and a slow pitch softball team with a bunch of friends.
Why I am a Mormon
I love this gospel and everything that it stands for. I'm a Mormon because I know that no matter what I'm going through I can always turn to the Lord for help. Whether I can't make up my mind on something as trivial as what would be the best way to handle a situation with a friend or something bigger like who I should marry. I know that I will get the answers I need in the Lord's time. He also will never leave us hanging in the world with nobody to turn to. He will always show us the way we are supposed to go even if it's not how we are expecting things to happen.
In what ways have your prayers been answered?
When I was in high school I was trying to decide whether or not I wanted to go to school to become a lawyer or a nurse. I know these are very different professions but they are both things I really wanted to do. So every night for a bout a week I prayed and asked Heavenly Father to help me know what He would like me to do. Along with praying I though about it constantly and couldn't come to a conclusion of what I should do. Then one day i was on the computer and someone came and rang my doorbell it was around 4 in the afternoon and I was the only one home at the time. When I answered the door it was my aunt and she came in and told me we needed to talk about school. I was looked at her kinda funny and went and sat down. Then she started telling me about this great nursing school she just started working at and how if could go to community college for a year or so then I could start there. This was such an answer to my prayers because it was just the kind of push i needed to make a choice. So now I'm going to school to become a nurse!
How I live my faith
I try to be the best example to the kids at my school as I can. I don't try to force my beliefs on anyone but I do try to let them know what I stand for. I hope by being a good example that I will be able to make an impression in somebodies life. I make sure people feel like they can come to me with questions they might have. Though I might laugh a little at some of the questions I get asked I still like to make sure they understand why I behave the way I do.
