Hi I'm Ryan

I grew up in southern California. I love to play sports. I'm a happy husband and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I work for a public accounting firm in downtown Los Angeles. I live in Santa Monica with my wife, Brooke. We were recently married in the mormon Los Angeles temple. We love living near the beach and playing sports together.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church and gained my own personal testimony that the church is really the Lord's restored gospel. I began developing my testimony when I was a teenager and it continues to grows stronger today. I gained this testimony when I began a serious study of the scriptures. As I began to live the gospel and serve others, I felt the Holy Ghost more in my life and the happiness that it brings.

How I live my faith

Missionary work is one of the ways that I serve in the church. I want others to feel the peace and happiness that the gospel brings. My testimony is strengthened as I watch others gain their own personal testimony. Likewise, I see the sadness that comes as I watch people make bad choices. I know that we have a Father in heaven who loves us, watches over us, and wants us to return to live with Him.
