Hi I'm Ryan McGraw

I live in Washington. I love playing the piano, singing in choir, running track and cross country, and cycling. I'm a mormon.

About Me

My name is Ryan and I am a Mormon. I love to participate in a variety of sports and value personal health and well-being. I am currently enrolled at BYU-I but am taking a two year intermission to serve as a full time missionary in Portugal. I love the gospel of Christ. It is the only true way to feel happy, at peace, and the only way to return to live with our loving Heavenly Father.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon partly because I have been raised in the church. But it extends to more than that. I have seen the effects in my life and in the life of others around me when they live by the standards of the church. I am much happier, compassionate, and patient when I do my best to live according the will of my loving Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a good example to everyone I come in contact with. I am not ashamed to talk to others who have questions about my beliefs as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I strive to keep my language and conversations clean and uplifting. Though I sometimes fall short, I try to live the principals and doctrine taught by the Book of Mormon.
