Hi I'm Ryan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love my family. Being a new dad is my first job, a good husband is my second job and my other job is running a restaurant. The service industry is challenging in all ways and forms- it is my faith that keeps me focussed, driven and successful. I love to cook, for THE #1 restaurant chain in the US, I participated in numerous workshops and professional development camps— I have the knowledge and recipes memorized for all 300 menu items and love to treat my family to the best dinners every week. Working for a small start up restaurant has taught me so much about the operation and about the industry. In my free time I love to play basketball, collect firearms, dabble in photography and cook even more!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that God love me, that his son, Jesus the Christ sacrificed his life so I may be forgiven for m transgressions. I am a Mormon because I am not perfect and my faith allows to learn and be a better father, husband and person. There is nothing that can be said or written that can describe the feeling of truth and fullness you get then you pray to your Father in Haven and He testifies the truthfulness of what you seek.

How I live my faith

Besides Church on Sundays my family and I enjoy surrounding ourselves with our parents and allowing them to once again feel the excitement of children at their feet. My wife and I are instructors for the Church nursery and love raising the teaching the Children of the Church every Sunday. I love visiting Church members and dropping off fresh desserts from the oven. I love Tuesday night basketball at the church building, and Sunday dinners with he missionaries.
