Hi I'm Ryan

I live in the west. I run marathons and ride bikes. I'm a father and husband. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of 5 and we live in the West. I love to fly fish, cycle, run marathons, and hang out with the family. I serve as a bishop and I am currently going back to school to advance in my current career. I have two children serving missions and enjoy hearing their stories as they serve! I love baseball and follow the RedSox daily during the season!

Why I am a Mormon

Following the gospel standards gives me peace and strenghth. As a parent, I want the best for my children, the Gospel of Jesus Christ gives parents a blueprint of information to guide and direct the affairs of our home. With the companionship of my wife, we can strive to build a stronger family unit, and have love and peace in our home with the help of our Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I love to attend my suday meetings and serve in our ward. As a bishop, I help serve with the youth, widows, and widowers in our ward. Serving the families that struggle with emplyment,and these tough economical times are very humbling. Their faithfullness in living the gospel bears testimony to me of the love that our Savior has for each of us. Family Home Evening is such a important part of our family. Family scripture study and prayer helps us to be kind and loving towards eachother. The Gospel is awesome!

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Having two children serving in the mission field is a great blessing to our family. We see spiritual blessings as well as temporal blessings. The financial demand for two missionaries can be overwhelming to say the least. As our family has tried to give all that we can to support our missionaries, the Lord has blessed us countless times. From friends and family members, to ward members assisting when they can, the financial needs of our missionaries are met. What a great opportunity we have to help further the Lords work by helping our missionaries. Show more Show less
