Hi I'm Ryan

I love watching and playing every sport and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am Ryan Lemmon, and I am very thankful for my testimony of Jesus Christ. My faith has helped me in every aspect of my life, from running cross country, to working 4 part-time jobs (at the same time) to save up money for the future. I have gone to church my whole life, and still go because I have found out what God wants me to do with my life. I take every opportunity I can to do what He asks, and ask for His direction in my present circumstances. I know nothing can substitute for the happiness I have found. I have 4 siblings, 1 brother and 3 sisters, and we're a good humored family. Our love abides in the hope we will live together as a family after this life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am happy to say I'm a 5th generation of a Mormon family. I love my heritage, how my ancestors gave up everything, all the comforts and luxury's they knew in the late 1800's over in England. They joined the church, put their unwavering faith in God to sail westward, land in the east coast, and travel thousands of miles to Utah by handcarts and wagons. All this because they prayed and asked God if this is what He would have them do. I have not traveled their journey, but I've received the same answer from God this is His church, this is where He wants me, and I've seen His hand guiding my life ever since.

How I live my faith

As a member, of Jesus Christ's church, I have had many opportunities to serve others. We have an organization in the church called home teaching, where at least once a month myself and one other Elder go and find out how individuals and families are doing within the church. We talk about things that matter to them, offer any help they need, share a spiritually uplifting message, and it helps me as much as it helps them. I love opportunities to reach out to others within the church, and other projects within the community like the foodbank.
