Hi I'm Ryan
I'm a father of three who loves reading and writing young adult novels. I'm a Mormon.
I've got three kids under five and am trying to instill in them my love of reading. I work in the airline industry but write in my free time. My dream is to be a successful writer of young adult fiction.
My parents brought me up in the Mormon church, but I had to do a lot of studying and praying to learn for myself whether their teachings were correct. It wasn't until I was in the Missionary Training Center in Madrid, Spain that I received the answer I'd been seeking. After a sincere prayer, the Holy Ghost filled me with hope and joy, answering my question about whether the Book of Mormon was true. Then as I served in the Canary Islands I learned much more about other religions, which confirmed to me what I'd already been taught by the Holy Spirit. I'm a Mormon because it is the only church that is led by Jesus Christ through direct revelation to his living prophet on the earth.
I'm the choir director of our ward and I love to see people grow in confidence as they learn to sing. I try to teach my children good habits so that when they are older, studying the scriptures and praying will come naturally to them. Most important, I try to always be a good example to them in treating my wife with respect and love.
