Hi I'm Ryan

I'm a wrestler, I can't wait to serve a mission, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Connecticut but later moved to Idaho and then to South Carolina. I love to wrestle, workout, skateboard and hangout with my friends. I have a brother serving a mission and i can't wait until it is my turn. I have an unshaken faith in the gospel and I love to spread it to others.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know for my self that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the Lord's true church. Although I was born into the church I still had a conversion moment and I have gained my own testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel. Growing up I always looked up to the missionaries and thought to myself I can't wait until I am old enough to be a missionary. I love how much happier my family is because we have a personal relationship with our Heavenly Father and because we have the spirit with us everywhere we go. I am so greatful to be a member of this church and to know all of the truths that i know. I know that the Book of Mormon is the true word of God. I know that it is another testimant of Jesus Christ. I know that the Bible is also the word of God. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of the Lord. I know that he translated the Book of Mormon under the direction of our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet on the Earth today and I am so greatful that the Lord has blessed us with a prophet so that we may know what we must do. I have a testimony of the priesthood, that it is the power and authority to act in the name of God. I am so greatful to hold the priesthood and am able to bless people's lives with it. I know for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true and I am so greatful to know that. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by participating in my ward and setting an example to others how a priesthood holder should act. When the church or the Lord comes up in a conversation I love to open my mouth and share my testimony or teach others about Jesus Christ. I go home teaching with my companion every month to give them a message and help their family with anything that they may need help with. I love to go out with the missionaries and spread the gospel to whoever is willing to listen. I had the opportunity of baptising someone and it truly felt like the greatest and most important thing i have done in my whole life. I love to live my faith and try everyday to be more like our Savior and to know him better.
