Hi I'm Ryan

I love Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Names Ryan. I'm a husband to my amazing wife, and a father of amazing kids. I'm a college graduate and working full time as an Business Analyst for a technology company.

Why I am a Mormon

My divorce was a major turning point in my life, I had to choose between joining my wife who had left the church and left me for another man, and gospel of Jesus Christ. For a short time I left the church, just long enough for me to feel the stark difference and the void that I felt in my life. Life doesn't always turn out the way we expect it to but if we are willing to follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ we can always find happiness in our lives. I have since returned to full activity in the church, married again, and I am now starting a new family and this time centering my marriage and my life more on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving in my ward in the Young Men's organization. We teach them the gospel, to serve others, and to prepare to become missionaries and men of integrity. I am grateful for the opportunity to make a difference in the world, one boy at a time.

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

God knows everything, including the best way for his children (all of us) to live, be happy and treat each other. This is why he sent his son Jesus Christ to teach us all of these marvelous truths. I have seen time and again how following the principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in my family has brought us happiness, and also, sadly, when we disregard the Gospel, and the pain, suffering and misery that comes along with it. I firmly believe that following the teachings of Jesus Christ will provide for us the best lasting happiness in marriage, our family relationships and friendships. Show more Show less
