Hi I'm Ryan Thomas

I grew up on a cattle ranch in Montana. Now I'm a dentist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I used to compete in alpine ski racing and still love to ski for fun. I also have four children, which keeps me on my toes. Good thing I have a great wife to help out! She helps me balance my busy work schedule with my home life. When I have a quiet moment, I enjoy reading books about American history, particularly about the revolutionary and civil wars.

Why I am a Mormon

Faith in Jesus Christ and His plan for us here in this life affects all the important decisions that I make in this life. Being a Mormon teaches me how to be like Him. I have learned that when I follow His example I feel happy and at peace.

How I live my faith

Living my faith starts within the privacy of the home where only my family would observe it. I try to have daily, meaningful scripture study and prayer with Heavenly Father. If I can start my day that way, it sets the done for all my interaction throughout the day. I serve in the church, visiting others who may feel down or need help in other ways. I try to share the message of hope that the Savior offers. Seeing others find happiness through the gospel helps me appreciate the ways that the gospel has helped me.
