Hi I'm Ryan

I love sports and the great outdoors and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play sports. In high school I played on the basketball, football and baseball teams. It is always a thrill to run out onto the football feild on a friday night under the lights. Sports have been an excellent thing in my life, in which I have learned much about life and discipline and what it means to be apart of a team. I cherish these times as I gained so many close friendships and had such wonderful memories.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because of several reasons. First off I have gained a testimony for myself of the message and doctorine that this church upholds, that I know independant of any other person that this is the path that God wants all of His children to take. I have gained this conviction through personal study of the Book of Mormon, through this divine book we can come to a more full understanding of Jesus Christ our Savior and Reedeemer, we can also come to the realization that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God and the Prophet of the Restoration. Through revelations given through Prophets, we also come to the understanding of the Plan that God has for each and everyone of us. This Plan has many differnt names but most commonly reffered to as the Plan of Salvation. Through this plan we truly understand how much God loves each of us as his children. This plan underlines the significance of Jesus Christ coming to Earth and Atoning for our sins and overcoming death so that one day we will all be resurrected and live again as families. This has been a huge support as I have seen Grandparents and loved ones pass on. I just want everyone to know, That I know this Church is true, and that as one strives to follow the Plan God has for each of us, we will have an increased amount of peace and love, that will be more abundant than one may have ever thought possible. This Church is true, this is why we are here on Earth.

How I live my faith

As a member of the church we are often called upon to serve within the church. Several times I have had the privlidege to teach classes and to be apart of that learning opportunity. This pushes each of us to read and study and learn more about Jesus Christ so that when called upon we will understand how to teach more adequatly about Him. It is a blessing to learn about our Savior, it also helps us to understand what is expected of us as followers of Christ. We always try to be examples of the believers. To live our life in accordance with the Commandments of God. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints is a very service minded church. On several occasions I have been with our church as we have done community clean ups, and service to make someones burdens lighter. On one occasion I remember mowing the lawn for a couple in which the elderly gentleman had just fell victim to a heart attack. The network within the Church is more like a family and one that will strengthen anyone in all there adversities and trials in life.
