Hi I'm Ryan

Im a canadian, quite the baller and you guessed it. im a mormon!

About Me

Hi there im Ryan and am serving a 2 year mission in the Michigan Lansing Mission. Im from the cold and frosty lands of alberta canada im 21 and love sports of all kinds especially the contact ones such as rugby football and wrestling and basketball. I also loved scouting and was big into working out playing video games and chilling out in my friends hot tub!

Why I am a Mormon

Well lets see i was raised mormon all my life but when i really started to understand that god loves me and cares and can answer prayers when i was about 9 years old and i lost my favorite stuffed animal haha i was so worried for about 4 days and then i remembered what my mom taught me about prayer so i knelt down and simply prayed for help. then i jumped up and ran downstairs and immediatly i found my toy. It may seem quite simple but that was my first really answered prayer and there has been many many more instances that have over the years strengthened my testimony. When i was 14 i gained a personal witness that the Book of Mormon was true. President Hinkley had challenged everyone to read it the whoe way through and pray and ask god! So thats whay i did and after study and prayer i asked god and i really had an amazing anwser to prayer. So i can say i know it is true. Also my favorite part about being a mormon is learning more about my savior and what i can do in this life to get his help. The atonement of christ can truly help us become new people and that is super exciting!

How I live my faith

Well i live my faith by trying to stick to the basics. When i was younger i looked forward to learning the real secrets to happy living or god and what not. As i have gotten older and lived my faith i realized that the 3 basics i was taught as a kid are the key. Daily reading of the book of mormon and bible, Daily prayer and attending church weekly and partaking of the sacrament! I also always try to become a better person and repent daily to become more like my savior. Right now i am serving as a full time missionary in the michigan lansing miching trying to invite all to come to christ and help them recieve the restored gospel! Its truly one of the happiest times of my life and its amazing to see others changing and accessing the atonement in their own lives!

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Ryan
 Of course i do!!!! why would god ever stop talking to his children and constantly giving them guidance?? Just like in days of old we have a prophet TODAY who can receive revelation straight from god for the entire world! This is one of the greatest blessings that the restored gospel has. We can get help on modern day problems! who wouldnt want that?  Show more Show less
