Hi I'm Ryan

I am a full-time father and husband, full-time student, full-time employee and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a family of 6 kids in Southern CA (Mojave Desert area....so hot....) then moved to CO when I was 11 and lived here ever since! I have been married since 2002 and count myself lucky that I found my eternal companion so easily. We have 3 children that are crazy, funny, loving, helpful (at times...) and greet me with a big hug when I get home from work (that's the best part). I think that I will be in college for the REST of my life, I work for CU Denver for their IT department.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the LDS faith, however just like all members of the Church I had to gain a testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel for myself. During my teenage years I prepared to serve a mission, I was called to serve in the Philippines mission. There have been so many faith building experiences in my life, but my mission is what effected me the most. There I was faced with not only spiritual challenges but my health and life were challenged many times as well. I learned to not only trust in God but to lean on him entirely for support and answers. Since my mission I have been blessed with the opportunity to be married and raise three of God's children. Everyday my marriage and my kids help me to understand why we are here on this earth and who we must emulate for peace on this earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday by trying to do the "little things" because I learned the lesson LONG ago that "little things turn into BIG things" I know that as I strive to accomplish the little things that my faith and my testimony will become stronger and will help me to resist the temptations of Satan.
