Hi I'm Ryan

I 'm a husband, father of seven, a teacher, outdoorsman and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Idaho and having traveled to many of the states and overseas I have to admit that it has been a fantastic place to live. I love fishing, hiking, camping and hunting. I enjoy sports and like to learn to do new things like auto mechanics, welding, etc. I have a masters degree and feel like I'd like to always be learning.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family. But being born into a Mormon family doesn't mean you are a Mormon. I have come to know for myself that there is a loving Father in Heaven and that he sent his Son Jesus Christ to atone for our sins. Perhaps more importantly, I know he has atoned for my sins. I know a lot of Christians believe this. I know it to be true! I love God and his Son Jesus Christ and want to serve him with all my heart.

How I live my faith

I am trying to be a disciple of Jesus Christ and my Father in Heaven. I think the best way to do that is to emulate them. I'm a husband and father first. I try to do what he would do in those relationships and though I'm not perfect, I can see that His path is a perfect path. I serve in the church by teaching adults and youth from the Bible, Book of Mormon and other holy scripture. I help people prepare to have successful marriages both before they marry and after. I help pull off parties , bar-b-ques, sporting events and any other types of activities that can gather good people and families.
