Hi I'm Ryan

I love basketball and being active. I grew up in Idaho and have two younger brothers and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love playing basketball and golf. I love county music and long drives. I love the outdoors and motorbiking. I did a year of college in Rexburg, ID at BYU-I. I am now on a mission in Fresno, California and I am loving every minute of it! I am the oldest child in my family. I have two younger brothers and then my Mom and Dad. I love to travel and have been to different parts of Europe and all over North America! One day I want to see the world and travel to many different places.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Latter Day Saint (Mormon) family with parents with good values and a desire to follow God. Watching their examples in my life has helped me greatly to gain a testimony of what this church and of what God and faith in Jesus Christ can do for me. Some people say well you were born Mormon and so you are Mormon but that's not really true. When we grow older we have to gain a testimony for ourselves of the truthfulness of this gospel. We can only rely so long on the faith of others in our lives. We must all pray in order to come to the knowlage that Jesus Christ is the Son of a living God. As a representitive of Jesus Christ I can promise all of you that Jesus is the Christ and that as you pray to God your prayers will be answered and you will come to the same knowlage and comfort that I have come to in my life.

How I live my faith

I right now am living my faith by serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I will serve a two year mission. That seems crazy right!? Well I can tell you that I can't find a better way to show your love to God then by serving Him and other people. This work brings me happiness beyond compare!
