Hi I'm Ryan

I grew up in Texas. I enjoy playing basketball, singing, and playing the piano. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

As a result of a congenital heart defect, I have had three open heart surgeries. I know that it is because of my faith in God and the faith and prayers of my family and friends that I am healthy and doing well now.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a Mormon but at some point I had to find out for myself if the LDS faith is right for me. I have prayed and read the Book of Mormon and have felt the fruits of the spirit mainly peace, joy, and comfort confirm to me that this is God's church and this is where I belong.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being optimistic every day and just remembering that I am a child of God, and that no matter what happens, God still loves me. I also get a good feeling inside whenever I help or give service to others. Plus, I enjoy spending time with my children seeing them learn and grow and teaching them to be a positive influence to those around them. Also, listening to positive, spiritual music puts me in the right frame of mind helps me to be able to tackle the trials of each day.
