Hi I'm Ryan

I'm a dental student and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a dental student. I enjoy golfing, bowling and wilderness activities. My wife and I are people people and love spending time with friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I've found the answers to all of the life questions through this church. Most importantly, I've gotten to know Jesus Christ more fully. I've learned that family is the most important thing in my life, and value my fellow-man more because I'm Mormon.

How I live my faith

I worship at church on Sunday's and teach the young men of our congregation. Everyday of the week I try to be uplifting, helpful, and honest with those around me. Daily I pray, read the scriptures and strive to keep the commandments.

Are Mormons Christians?

Ryan
We are definitely Christians. Many think that we worship Joseph Smith, who was our first prophet, but that is not the case. Joseph Smith believed in and taught about Jesus Christ. Jesus is the foundation of our faith. We differ from other Christian groups in some of our beliefs, but since we try to build our lives around Jesus and His example, we are Christian.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Ryan
The beauty and complexity of the world and of the life that occupies the world tell me there is a God. I have learned a lot about biology and evolution, and the more I learn about those things the more convinced I am that there is a God directing the creation of all things. I know there is a God when I look over a beautiful landscape. Most importantly, I know that God is there when I feel in my heart, as He answers my prayers. Show more Show less
