Hi I'm Ryan

I was born in Utah, I have moved around a lot and I would not trade that experience for anything. And i'm a Mormon.

About Me

My hobbies are, i like to play guitar I hangout with my friends a lot. I am interested in joining the military when i get home from my mission. I am going to a local comunity college just to get my generals out of the way. I have grown up in the church all my life, and i am glad that i have. I have gone to Canada for a caoneing trip. I have gone mountian climbing in the Winds. I have driven across the country twice and have had a blast doing it. I really enjoy a good game of paintball and airsoft, and i really enjoy reading and playing sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints all my life. I follow the teachings of Christ because i want to and because i dont like to think about where i would be if i dont have it in my life. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that is was translated by the prophet Joseph Smith. I also know that Jesus Christ is the worlds Savior and that by following his teachings we can all return to live with our Heavenly Father again. i also know that I will be able to live with my family forever through the gospel of Jesus Christ and that just brings me great joy. My testimony means a lot to me it is the core of who i am and without it I dont know who i would be and where i would be in my life. So i am very grateful to have parents who are strong members of the Church of Jesus of Latter Day Saints. And also i know that without the pure teachings of Christ I would not be where i am today.

How I live my faith

Right now i am serving my mission and am at the Missionary Training Center in Provo Utah. I will be serving in the Brazil Brasila mission and will return home in September of 2013. Before i decided to go on a mission I was an assitent to the scout master and had a blast doing it, the scouts were great and a lot of fun to teach. I would also help organize scheduels for parking lot clean up and parking for basketball and football games. I am an example to all of my friends and I try to help them whenever i can. (Two years later) So now I am hoem from my mission that i have served and i have come to realize that there is always more that i can do to live my faith, that just a simple smile can change the world for someone. So i am here to do what it takes to live my faith and to get the work done that i have been called to do.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

So to some people it may seem impossiable to recive an answer from God because most people see God as a force that does not interact with us, that he is just there to watch and punish when we do something wrong. But I know this not to be true God is our heavenly father and he is there to bless and to nurish. So we can recive answers from our father in heaven just like asking our earthly father. The process is just a little different. We need to kneel down and pray with an open heart and having the desire to change and to feel his spirit guiding us back to him. Show more Show less
