Hi I'm Ryan Nelson

I love the mountains, music, the outdoors and classic cars. I have a beautiful wife and kids, 2 dogs and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah. I love the outdoors, skiing, hiking and music. My wife and I have 3 children and 2 golden retrievers. I love to play the guitar and am starting to put some videos on YouTube.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because I have found the gospel of Jesus Christ to be the foundation for a happy life. Christ's teachings have helped me through the good times and the bad to have a broader and less selfish perspective on things and to be happier person.

How I live my faith

I served as a missionary in Santiago, Chile from 1992 until 1994. I have found that daily prayer and scripture study change how I feel and how I interact with others. I go to church each week with my wife and kids, where we have also had a hand in teaching young children in primary. I currently am an assistant scoutmaster.
