Hi I'm Ryan

I'm from Utah. I love my family, sports, and being outdoors. I don't like seafood or tomatoes. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and father to four incredible redheads. I enjoy playing sports and being outdoors. I work in the dental industry and prefer to spend my time making memories with my wonderful little family!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I can experience peace in this world and eternal life in the world to come.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by making my best effort each day to follow the teachings and example of Jesus Christ.

Why don’t women hold the priesthood in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? How do Mormon women lead in the Church?

Ryan
I do not know why men hold the priesthood and women do not. Almighty God is our loving Heavenly Father and I trust that the responsibilities he has given to men and to women which are different and equally important are given to help us become exalted. "For neither is the man without the woman nor the woman without the man in the Lord." Show more Show less

What is the First Vision?

Ryan
The First Vision is the visitation that God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, made to Joseph Smith in 1820. It is called the First Vision because it was the first time that he has seen and interacted with a heavenly being. Show more Show less

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Ryan
To Mormons, the family is the most basic and fundamental unit of society. A family creates the ideal environment for God's children to progress towards becoming like Him and experience joy. Mormons believe that families can be together forever and that belief places greater importance on nurturing and preserving those most important relationships. Show more Show less

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Ryan
The Atonement of Jesus Christ is that in some miraculous way, He was able to suffer the consequences of the sins of all of God's children that we "might not suffer" them. It was necessary for Jesus Christ to lay down His life so that He could take it up again. His sacrifice was the ultimate and infinite sacrifice because it needed to be in order to satisfy the demands of justice. Show more Show less
