Hi I'm Ryann

I'm an equestrian, a teacher, the wife of a firefighter, a mother, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the south western United States as the daughter of divorced parents. I attended college and graduated with a degree in English and History. I taught 8th grade English in a public school for four years. I am currently raising two beautiful children and teaching at a residential treatment center. I got my first pony for my fifth birthday and have been riding horses ever since. I compete in hunter/jumper shows all across the south western United States with my horse Gigi. Horses are my passion and I enjoy sharing that passion with my children and the kids at the treatment center. I am married to a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints who is an incredible man. He shares his courage, love, faith, and strength with our community serving as a firefighter.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I believe families can be together forever. I also believe in a loving God who listens to my prayers and answers them. I love his son Jesus Christ and strive to live my life as he lived his. I believe each of us is a divine son or daughter of our Heavenly Father and that we were sent to this earth with the tools we need to return to him someday.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving my ward and community by volunteering as a secretary and teacher in Relief Society, the women's organization in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I live my faith not only by attending my church meetings each week and volunteering in different church positions but also by living the teachings of the gospel in my daily life. I am a good example to others, I serve the people around me, I stand up for what I know is right, and I share the gospel with others.
