Hi I'm Ryan

I am a Salesman at a communication company, and a father of four. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play sports. I especially like to play basketball and golf, I also love to run and stay active. I enjoy traveling with my wife and plan on returning to Europe. I have four kids that i love to play with. I am a salesman in healthcare communication. I have lived in Utah the majority of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I grew up in the church, you cannot rely on family members beliefs once you get older. You must study it out for yourself and ask Heavenly Father if the church is true for yourself. As i was serving a mission I came to see our Heavenly Fathers hand in the world, and how he blesses people. As we serve our fellow man, we are serving him. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the manual that we can use to guide our family through these turbulent times. I don't know how i would be able to keep my family safe in this ever changing world without the teachings of the church. I know that this church is true and is led by revelation, and that Jesus Christ is the son of God.

How I live my faith

I love the joy I feel when I serve others in my area. I currently serve with the men of our area. We meet weekly and learn from each other as we discuss our triumphs, and our struggles together as we try to raise our families and be good parents. It helps to hear other perspectives on life. As you serve others and see there struggles you appreciate what you have.

What is the priesthood?

The priesthood is the authority to act in the name of God. The priesthood is given to worthy male members of the church to help bless the lives of others. This is the same authority that Jesus and the 12 apostles had. Show more Show less
