Hi I'm Ryan

I am a Runner, a Mountaineer, a Photographer, a Missionary and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey, I am a missionary serving in the Australia Sydney Mission. Before my mission I was a student at Brigham Young University working as a photographer and filmmaker. When not at work or school I could usually be found at the gym, swimming or out running in the mountains. I come from a large family, being the second of nine children and grew up a few miles outside of Washington DC. I love english and history and have been very blessed to travel to many diffrent countries and experience a variety of different cultures. I hope to continue to travel and learn more about this great world we live in and the people that fill it. I love my family, I love the gospel of Jesus Christ, and I love being a missionary to help bring these good tidings to the people of Australia.

Why I am a Mormon

I know this church is true.

How I live my faith

I am certainly far from perfect, but I have come to trust our Heavenly Father's commandments. I see how when I strive to follow the example of our Saviour, there is a light that guides me in darkness and a hope for good things ahead. I see that as I am living as I should, that I have never had any worry or doubt about the future, nor shame or guilt about the past. I am learning that trying to be like Jesus must be done in all aspects of my life, not just going to church and following God's rules, but also through lending a smile to others, giving of my time to help those in need whether I know them or not, and never being ashamed of His Gospel. As I study the Scriptures, I am learning more of Who He truly is, and growing a deeper desire to be like Him. I am trying to make the Gospel more than something I believe, but rather, something that I am. I will continue to look for those opportunities to lift others, minister hope and inspire faith to fill my commission to "let [my] light shine before men" so I can bring honor to my Father in heaven, and stand as a Witness of His infinite love and the mercy of His son, Jesus Christ. And! At the moment, I am a full-time missionary, called to serve in Australia!
