Hi I'm Ryan Miller

I am going on a mission to Taiwan. I have four brothers and one sister whom we adopted from China. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have many hobbies. I play the trumpet. I love to make music! It honestly makes me happy. I also love to sing and play piano, and I have taught myself to play guitar and recently the Chinese bamboo flute.I also enjoy sailing. I love nature! As an eagle scout I have had many opportunities to enjoy and appreciate nature. Being in nature gives a unique opportunity to feel the spirit of God. That is why I love it so much. Probably one of my most prominent hobbies is my learning of Chinese. The more I learn the more I want to learn. People around me know this because I sometimes speak Chinese when I should be speaking English. My love for Chinese language, culture, and people started when my family adopted a girl from China. She is an amazing sister and I love the addition of her to my family. Now I am on a mission in Taiwan serving Chinese speaking people. Helping them be happier.

Why I am a Mormon

Being Mormon is what makes me happy. The joy that comes from knowing that Jesus is my savior, that he unconditionally loves me, and that he has a plan for me gives me hope, it makes me happy! There is no reason for me to follow His teachings other then that it makes me happy. I know that following the teachings of the gospel has been a blessing in my personal life. Some people may think I am crazy for spending two years on a mission. But honestly I love serving and it is worth it every day! It is worth it to wake up every morning and learn about Jesus, for, as I said, he makes me happy!

How I live my faith

The way I try to live my faith can be summed up by the title of the song "I am trying to be like Jesus." He is the perfect example! I try to do evrything just as Jesus would do it.I know that He loves me, He loves me and everyone unconditionally. I know this is true. This means that to live my faith I need to love as he does. And as I strive for this goal and my love for other people increases, I find myself serving others out of love and pure desire to just help. Nothing makes me happier than making someone else happy. I have had many opportunities to serve, I have served in the church in leardership positions and I have found many other ways to serve. As I am trying to be like Jesus I have come to love to serve. Now I am on a mission serving the Lord and telling others about the happiness of the Gosple. It is the most wonderful thing I could be doing right now.
