Hi I'm Ryan

I'm a father and a husband. I work as an industrial project manager. I like watch sports and I am an avid craftsman. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father and husband living in Gilbert, Arizona. My wife and I have been married nearly five years and have a young daughter. We love spending time her and enjoy all the new stages of fatherhood. I currently work for a semiconductor company as an industrial project manager and have been in the construction industry since high school. I received a degree from BYU-Idaho in Construction Management. I grew up in Spokane, Washington as a member of the LDS Church. My family loved spending the summers on the lake watching baseball and drinking milkshakes. I served a mission in Porto Alegre, Brazil speaking Portuguese and serving the people there.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe family is the most import unit in this life. In an age where morals are questioned daily, it is comforting to know that we can have a solid foundation in troubling times. The Church puts a huge emphasis on family values and spending time as a family. I firmly believe in marriage between a man and a woman where both can be united not only in this life, but for all eternity. I believe in Jesus Christ and that He is our Savior. His Church is established on Earth today and through His saving ordinances we can return to our Heavenly Father. His plan is perfect, even though we are not, and provides us ways to become perfect.

How I live my faith

I am a primary teacher where every Sunday I teach nine year old's the Gospel. It is amazing to know how well they understanding both Bible and Book of Mormon stories and teachings. I also visit a couple families each month to share a message and make sure they are okay.
