Hi I'm Ryan

I am a musician. I love Jiu Jitsu. I love to travel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have four brothers and two sisters, with one of them being my twin sister and two loving parents. I was born and raised in southern California in a city called Riverside. I love people, just talking and getting to know people, and traveling. Im 20 years old and have been a member of the LDS church my whole life. I love sports like wrestling, jiu jitsu, judo, basketball and pretty much any other sport. I play the trumpet and hope to one day play professionally.

Why I am a Mormon

Im a mormon because I know that this is the true church of Jesus Christ. There are many good churches out there but why settle for good when you can have perfection? I love the church, all the teachings, the people, the activities really help us work together for the goal we all have of living with our father in heaven. We all have problems and there doesnt exist a perfect person here on the earth but the teachings of the restored gospel really help us improve and be happy. I know that the book of mormon contains gods teachings and that by following its guide we can become that much better! God has blessed my life so much when I follow what he has asked of me and for this I have come to know that this is his true church. I truly am happy being a latter day saint and I know that if someone wishes that happiness they can find it here today through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I do my best by following the commandments that god has taught. By first being an example to my friends and family and also by renewing and living my baptismal covenants. I try to be the best disciple I can by helping other people know that this is the true church and by obeying the commandments. Although I have alot to go to be perfect like Jesus Christ I do my best to live all of the teachings such as loving my neighbor and offering service when I can. I currently am serving my mission in Paraguay as a missionary and I have the opportunity to share the gospel with hundreds of my Paraguayan brothers and sisters in Spanish and Guarani.
