Hi I'm Ryne

I was born and raised in Provo Utah. I want to be a lawyer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Provo, Utah, but grew up in California, Utah and Nevada. I went to a small high school in Norhtern Nevada and played for the varsity tennis team for three years. I enjoy being ourdoors, doing acticities such as archery, hiking, canoeing and camping. I also enjoy reading and being an active member of my local and national community. After graduating form high school, I attended Brigham Young University for a year before turning in my mission papers. I am currently serving a full-time LDS mission in the Philippines Laoag mission. When I return from my mission, I plan to return to BYU and get my degree and go on to Law School.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in a family where both my parents are strong members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have been a member all of my life, in part because I was born into a member family. This is not the only reason that I am still an active member in the Church however. Through the standards Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints I have lived a happy healthy life. Life is not always easy, but through the principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ I have received strength to press forward through life, trusting that I have a loving Heavenly Father who will provide for me as I am faithful and trying my best. The love that I feel from God through the members of the Church provides me with stength to work and improve my life. I have felt through the power of the Holy Ghost that this Church is true. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. God has provided me with direction throughout my life through it. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior, and the Savior of all Mankind. He loves everyone so much. I have felt his love very strongly through out my life.

How I live my faith

I have always been an active member of my ward. I went to the activities for young men through the ward and enjoyed bringing my friends to them as well. I participated in the Boy Scouts of America program and enjoyed doing service through the Boy Scouts as well as through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have been a teacher for young children during church on Sundays. I am currently serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Laoag Philipines Mission. I have served as an indexer for the Church, putting census and genealogy record into computers to be used by thousands of people.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

God is our loving Heavenly Father. This is the underlying truth that sustains all that we believe as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Because He loves us, He has given us all that we need to return to live with him one day. He is omnipotent and omniscient. He knows each of His children personally and wants us each to come to know Him as He knows us. He is perfect, glorified, immortal and loving. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It contains the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as given to prophets ancietly on the American continent. It teaches of about the love of God and the importance of following His commandments. It testifies of the divinity and mission of the Savior Jesus Christ. It is true. All people can know of it's truth through the power of the Holy Ghost (Moroni 10:3-5). It is also the evidence that Joseph Smith was a true prophet. It is a gift from our loving Father in Heaven to guide us through troubled times. Show more Show less
