Hi I'm Ryan

I ride Motocross, which my mom taught me at age 2. I work for Microsoft, I play alot Xbox, it's part of my job too. I am a Mormon.

About Me

Yes, I work for Microsoft. I love playing Xbox. I love motocross, rock climbing, Hiking, mountain biking, are also awesome. As you can tell I am addicted to adrenaline. Oh and

Why I am a Mormon

Why I am a Mormon... I've never actually asked myself that. It just feels right. The people, the knowledge that we have about Heavenly Faters plan for all of us... It just resonates within you, that what you're doing matters. No where else can you find such a loving and caring group of people, that reflect the image of Jesus Christ. This is the true church, Jesus Christ is at the head of this church. I know that with every fiber of my being, that is why I have never questioned it.

How I live my faith

Service.... Service is key to living this gospel. There is no greater joy that doing a great service to those you love. There is no better way to love someone, than to provide them with service. So serve well.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Ryan
I always like this question because of my love of science. Just like we can manipulate some molecules to create new and exciting things, so can our heavenly father... just on a much bigger scale! Is it weird to think that is possible? I say no, but then again I know in my heart and my mind that this is true. Look around you and it will testify to you as well. Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

Ryan
It's Awesome... oh more detail. It's freedom. What I love about being a member of this church is how freeing it actually is. Those around me say that I have all these rules and can't have any fun. However, I feel they are the ones who aren't free. I don't see them... happy. I see them struggle with things like addiction, fleeting relationships, loss of self worth, and finding satisfaction in there lives. I am free because we are taught to stand a little higher and to lift those around us. I am free so that I may help my friends in need. Show more Show less

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Ryan
I look forward to this so much, picture the person you love, your most cherished loved ones. Now picture how happy you are after 60 years with them. How much greater will that joy be in 500 years? A thousand? All Eternity? If you've ever lost someone to tragedy, you'll be able to see them again and regain precious moments with them again. I'm not sure if I'm making much sense, so I wanted to include this phenomenal personal experience of Thomas S. Monson, as he shares the touching story of a mother who lost her son at war but learned that he would live again because of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Please watch it. http://www.mormonchannel.org/video/mormon-messages?v=911029403001 Show more Show less

Do Mormons practice polygamy?

Ryan
Short answer. No. Long answer is best explained by President Gordon B. Hinckley. Side note. President Gordon B. Hinckley is awesome, His story on lessons he learned as a boy is truly epic. I recommend you watch it here. http://www.mormonchannel.org/video/mormon-messages?v=911029440001 Show more Show less
