Hi I'm Ryan Joseph Euer

I am a convert to the church, served a mission, married in the temple, father of 3 boys and almost a doctor. Lastly, I'm Mormon!

About Me

Currently, I am in medical school getting my clinical doctorate in audiology. My wife and I have been married for 9 years and we have 3 boys. If you would have asked me 3 years ago if I would be in medical school I would have not believed you. However, through prayer and fasting I am here doing something I love to do. Academically, I was the first one on both sides of my family to ever get a degree. My family, we enjoy anything that deals with the outdoors. We love to go camping, fishing and participating basketball, golf, football and bowling. For the last 3 months, I take my 2 oldest boys fishing every Friday. I love spending this time with them and now have made it a tradition. All in all I love spending time with my wife and children because they are what brings joy in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

In order to understand why I am a Mormon, you must understand my conversion story. One my good friends that I played soccer with growing up was Mormon. His mother ran a babysitting business from her home. My 2 younger siblings were babysat by her after my parents divorced. In little ways, the slowly introduced the church to my mother but had no success. When I was 11, they set my mother up on a blind date with a single father in our church. On their date, he dared her to come to church with him. My mother who has never backed down from anything of course agreed. Unfortunately, nothing ever came in the form of marriage, but for the next 3 months my mother went to church by herself. My friend who is Mormon, they sent the full-time missionaries on our to our house. They wanted to teach us about the restored gospel and modern-day revelation. Shortly after the 2nd discussion, they asked if we would be baptized and we agreed. I prayed to know whether the church was true and got a definitive answer of yes. On May 7th, 1991 we entered the waters of baptism willing to the follow the Lord's commandments. Every goo thing that has come into my life I can trace back to that day. This church was a answer to my prayers. On my mission, a prayer that I offered a year prior to my family getting baptized kept coming in my mind. I would ask myself, "What does this prayer mean?" The year prior to our baptism, we were in some serious financial hardships to the point whereI did not know if my mother would keep her house. One night I offered a prayer asking Jesus Christ to bring some relief to my mother and siblings. I did not know how to pray. But in my humble prayer I cried and sobbed wanting some answer. It was not until 8 years after I had been baptized that the Lord indeed answered my prayer with allowing us to have the restored gospel in our lives. Prayers are always answered, sometimes just not in the ways that you think. This church is true!

How I live my faith

Currently, I serve as a president of one of the mens organizations of our local ward. What a blessing this has been to get to know each of the men and know their testimonies of why this church is true. Their faith and testimony builds me up every time I am around them. In the in the past I have held callings in the church as a sunday school instructor for the youth and teaching children from 3 to 11 years old. Those callings I truly enjoyed because of how much love they had for our Savior, Jesus Christ and their willingness to always serve Him and keep His commandments. Ever since I have been home from my mission, I have been a home teacher to a couple of families in the local congregation. What a blessing it has been to walk into their homes share a message about the restored gospel and to feel their love for the Savior. This is how I live my faith and this is done by serving others in way that Jesus Christ would have me serve. Not to serve because it is my duty but to serve because I love them so much and want to help these families and individuals in any way possible. A prophet once said that if we are serving our fellow beings we are serving our God. I get excited knowing that I am helping our Father in Heaven's children to live the lives that He would have them live.
