Hi I'm Ryan Russell

I'm a Mormon ham Amatuer Radio Operator.

About Me

I am an Information Systems professional (Systems Administrator), and a Ham (Amatuer) Radio Operator who is into Emergency Preparedness, not just communications. I have been married since February 1996, and we have 3 kids, 2 girls and a boy. I enjoy watching them grow up, no matter how much that the push as the try to find themselves.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised mostly Lutheran, but things never seemed right to me when I attended church, so I just tried to be spiritual. My wife started taking me to the LDS church when we were expecting our oldest child, and finally everything clicked.

How I live my faith

I do my best, on a day to day, sometimes minute by minute, basis to be a M.A.N. Modeled After Nephi. This is following a challenge from one of my leaders challenging us to "Arise from the Dust, and be a man". Inspired by this challenge I have started a blog chronically my journey following the challege laid out to us. I teach one of the adult men's classes on the second and third Sundays of the month, as well as volunteer as a Cub Scout Committee Chair.
