Hi I'm Ryan

I work as a real estate appraiser. I was born and raised in Englewood Colorado. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the dad of three beautiful children. My wife and I were married 10 years ago in the Los Angeles California Temple. I currently am working as a commercial real estate appraiser for a local appraisal firm. We appraise all types of major asset classes including apartments, retail, office, industrial, and vacant land. I enjoy running, lifting weights, following and watching all levels of american football, and spending time with my wife and kids.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because living the gospel of Jesus Christ brings me great joy. This joy and a peace are feelings that I cannot experience in any other way because they come through the Holy Ghost or the Spirit. I know that this world is led by a prophet of God Thomas S. Monson, who receives revelation for all of us. God loves us so much that he has given us this gift. God wants to be a part of our lives and what a great way to do it by providing prophets who know his will and what we need despite all of the adversity and trials that we all face in this life. I love this gospel because God has granted me through his Spirit the opportunity to receive revelation for myself and for my family. God wants to be a part of our lives and I pray that I might be worthy of His help.

How I live my faith

I currently teach the 14 and 15 year boys and girls in Sunday School. I have the great privilege to teach them out of the Book of Mormon which another witness of Jesus Christ. It is a joy to teach these things because the Book of Mormon helps to convert us to our Savior Jesus Christ and how we can find true happiness in this life. I am also a home teacher where I am assigned to two families in the geographic boundaries of our church unit called a ward. I do this home teaching with a companion and through these visits we are able to assess the needs of these families and provide encouragement, spiritual and temporal support, as well as just being a friend. One of my highest and greatest responsibilities that I have is as a husband and a father. God has given me the sacred responsibility to love, support, protect, respect and honor my family and help in leading them to eternal life with God.
