Hi I'm Ryan Buchanan

I'm a Child of God just like you, and being a Mormon helps me understand that.

About Me

I'm a Husband and Father of 4 children. I love to play outdoors, wake boarding at Lake Powell, snow skiing in Utah, fly fishing in Alaska, snorkeling in the Bahamas, backpacking in New Mexico, and attending ASU football games in Arizona; GO Devils! I have a Masters in Business, and work to live and play. I have a mortgage, bills to pay each month and have challenges that keep life interesting. My biggest challenge has been to juggle a marriage, family, work, church responsibilities, and my passions. My biggest success has been my marriage.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I chose to be. I wanted to know why I'm here on earth. I wanted to know where we go after this life on earth. I wanted to know if we came from somewhere before this life on earth. Being an active Mormon answers those questions, and provides direction of what to do while I'm here.

How I live my faith

To be a Mormon requires faith, more than just saying you believe, but to "do it." In between the alarm clock and the kiss good night, I find time to listen to a prophet's voice each day on my way to work. I use Iphone Aps to learn my duty as a mormon and then I go and do. I visit God's Temple to get answers to my questions. I go to Sunday meetings each week to recommit to God just like the day I was baptized.
