Hi I'm Ryan Wright

I grew up in Morgan Hill, California. I live in Murray, Utah. I am a husband and father. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband to a wonderful wife and a father of two beautiful girls. My family is everything to me. Knowing that I will be with them for all eternity is one of the greatest truths that bring me so much joy. I work full time as a manager of a commercial truck rental facility. My favorite thing to do other than spend time with family is to snowboard. I like to cook and could always settle down to a good movie.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a mormon family. We had a lot of struggles growing up and some of the greatest memories I have is of my mom's unwavering faith in the gospel. There was never a time that she gave up. We want to church every Sunday, we prayed everyday, we read the scriptures as much as we could. She never turned her back on God. Even through all of the struggles, we never went without. My mother is a perfect example of faith brings miracles. It is by watching her faithfully live the gospel that I was able to gain my own knowledge of how much our Heavenly Father loves us. I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ is real. I know that this is his church which He governs through faithful servants called prophets just like he did in ancient times. I know that the Book of Mormon is true scripture. It supports the Bible as the word of God. The Book of Mormon is filled with the love of Christ. I am greatful to have this knowledge in my life.

How I live my faith

No body is perfect. This is why we have the Saviour in our lives. I try my best to fulfill my duty to my Heavenly Father. One of my responsibilities in the church is to assist the Missionaries in there efforts to share the gospel. I also am a home teacher. This is where I visit certain members of our ward, or congregation, in there home and make sure that they are okay and help them in there needs. These two things help get to know those in my church and also my community, and find out how I can serve them best.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Ryan Wright
One of my favorite things of life is knowing that my family is forever. I get to be the father of my children, the husband of my wife, the child of my parents, and the brother of my siblings for all of eternity. What a wonderful thing that our Heavenly Father has given us. Heavenly Father has given us the power and authority here on earth to make this happen. Show more Show less
