Hi I'm Ryan Howard

I am a snowboarder, a college student, a friend and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am in my 20's and I am a college student. I like to snowboard, and just have fun with my friends. In my life I want to graduate, get married in the temple, and have a family.

Why I am a Mormon

 I am a mormon because, as I live the things that are taught in this church I feel free from the craiziness of the world around me. I came to know that these things were true when I had graduated highschool. I was telling my siblings one night to do their homework, then my father told me I need to do my homework. From that point on I started to read the book of mormon and feel the relief that the gospel brings.

How I live my faith

I am a recently returned missionary from Texas, their I taught people the gospel all day. But now that I am home, I strive to read my scriptures daily and try to be the most like Jesus that I can.

What is a ward/stake/branch?

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Ryan Howard
"we believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it's translated correctly..." -The Articals of Faith #8. Yes we do believe that the bible is the word of god but, after thousands of years of translation and cannonisation the bible has been changed. so we believe that it must be translated correctly.
