Hi I'm Ryan

I am an athlete. I graduated culinary school. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like everything having to do with sports. I grew up playing football in the fall, snowboarding in the winter, baseball in the spring and at the beach during the summer. I am happily married and a father of one. I am a culinary school graduate, and currently working on a degree in finance.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in this church. From an early age I knew that we go to church on Sunday and learn about Jesus Christ. There came a point, however, that I realized if I was going to continue following Christ's teachings, I had to know for myself, independent of anyone else, that they are true. The only way I knew how to do that was to pray and to keep praying until I got an answer. The knowledge I have today did not come to me all at once. It came little by little throughout the years as I continued to show faith in Christ and follow His teachings to the best of my ability. I know Jesus Christ lives and is the savior of the world. I know He loves us and for that reason has called prophets to the earth again to be guides through the darkness. Last of all, I know that there is a plan for us to return to the presence of our Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I am focused on service to others and spreading the teachings of Christ throughout my community. Everybody needs a helping hand at some point in their life. I believe that Jesus Christ wants all of us to help build and strengthen each other. My wife and I are able to spend time together planning ways we can help others through service, gospel discussions, or being a support through difficult times.
