Hi I'm Ryan

I am a future returned missionary, a baller, a mormon.

About Me

I grew up in American Fork, Utah. Back home I was into sports and competing in whatever I could. I joined the football team and played my favorite sport, baseball. I won defensive player of the year my sophomore year in football, but baseball is my favorite sport of them all. There is nothing like playing it and going to a professional game to enjoy the environment, Hot dogs, Home-Runs, and Game-Winning hits. The hunt for the championship is the best time of the year. October would not be the same without the great sport of Baseball.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? Because of the focus on families and the good qualities that it brings out in everyone. The gospel that we live by helps us come closer to christ and it also improves the quality of our lives. Without the gospel in my life and living by its teachings I don't know if i would be as happy as I am today. I know that this gospel can improve how happy we are, if we live by its teachings, even if we think that we are the happiest that we can be. I know that the Book of Mormon is true because of the experiences that I have had in my life. I know that if we have a question, the Book of Mormon can help provide an answer. In times of not knowing where to go with my life I have turned to that book and was guided to my answer. It has comforted me and I know it can do the same thing for everyone. I know the Book of Mormon is true by praying about it and applying the teachings that come from it. Everyone has to come to know for themselves that it is true and I have come to know for myself that it is, along with the bible, the word of god.

How I live my faith

I live my faith each day. I'm a missionary for our church in the amazing state of Minnesota. The people here are amazing. My purpose in Minnesota is to invite others to come unto christ and to live by his teachings. I love it. I have seen it improve the quality of people's lives, even when they thought that they were already set and were already as happy as they could ever be. I am serving for 2 years, devoting all my time and effort to my savior Jesus Christ, leaving behind my schooling, family, and friends in Utah.

In whom should we have faith?

Ryan
We should definitely have our faith in Jesus Christ. Without him, we would not be able to repent of our sins and we would not be able to be washed clean of our sins. If Jesus had not suffered for our sins, we would not be able to return to our father in heaven. That is our ultimate goal is to return to him and to gain eternal life. We can return to him by repenting, being baptized, recieving the gift of the holy ghost and enduring to the end meaning continually following and keeping his comandments until death.
