Hi I'm Ryan

I love drums, guitar, piano, and basketball. I speak English and Spanish. I read for fun. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a member of the church my entire life. I was Baptized November 22, 1996. Currently I am in the midst of what many call life's big decisions. I'm in college still struggling to find a major, and trying my best to still look for an eternal companion. I served a mission in Arequipa, Peru and Cochabamba, Bolivia. Due to some political disputes I was blessed with the opportunity to love and serve in two missions!

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up, I was taught well by my parents. They demonstrated through their examples how to have a great relationship with my Heavenly Parents as well. This relationship allowed me to learn through prayer God's eternal plan. He loves me and has shown me in innumerable ways that this is His church and His plan. I believe in a just God and am friends with him. Through His great love He has provided all the opportunity to return to Him. This opportunity of what I speak is His gospel taught by His prophets in His church.

How I live my faith

I like to believe I live my faith through service and availability. I try to strive to be ever-ready for such calls. I currently teach a class in church to men of my similar age group. I think this assignment actually pushes me to increase in knowledge and prepare for life in a much more rigorous way. I also try to dedicate time weekly to temple worship and to accompany the missionaries in a few of their lessons.
