Hi I'm Riley Shroyer

I grew up in Indiana. I love to run and play music and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a very easy going person most of the time and I love meeting new people! I'm a freshman at Ball State University. I'm 22 years old and served a mission in Fresno, CA. I like to run a lot and ran my first marathon not too long ago. I love to do any kind of exercise in general. I like to play music with my friends. I play drums, ukulele, guitar, piano, and sing. My whole family has a passion for music. I have three brothers and one sister. All of my siblings are now married and have kids of their own. I really enjoy doing service for others and teaching the Gospel and helping others come closer to Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I've chosen to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because it is the true church on the Earth today. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and all that he did for me. I know that he died to atone for my sins. He loves me dearly and always wants me to follow him. I may stray at times, but he is always waiting with open arms for me to come back to the path of righteousness. I know Thomas S. Monson is the chosen prophet, seer, and revelator for the Church today. I know Joseph Smith restored the Gospel to the Earth and I know he saw God and Jesus Christ. I know the Book of Mormon is true and love it with all my heart. It gives so much inspiration to me. Even if everything that you just read was false, you won't find a better way to live a good, abundant life than by following the teachings of the church.

How I live my faith

I spread the Gospel to everyone I see. I love to study the Book of Mormon and the other Standard works (Bible, Doctrine and Covenants). The most effective way to live your faith is to try your best to be like Christ so that's what I try to do!
