Hi I'm Ryan David

About Me

I'm an American living overseas in Europe. I'm married with 4 little kids that I love dearly. I have a love of history and of seeing new places. I have lived in different parts of the United States.

Why I am a Mormon

I have discovered for myself that God works through prophets that help the people spiritually. I am a Mormon because I have prayed and received my own personal conviction that God is at the head of this church. I have experienced incredible happiness and fulfillment in this church, even though it wasn't always easy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving those that I go to church with. I am currently in a leadership position, which means that I'm very busy on Sundays with helping church meetings go smoothly and making sure that the members' needs are met.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Ryan David
No, they don't worship him. They regard Joseph Smith the same as the people of the Old Testament who looked to their prophets to give them guidance from God. Joseph Smith was a man chosen by God to help us better understand Jesus Christ and the purpose of life. Show more Show less
