Hi I'm Ryan

I love to fly-fish, hunt, snowboard. I'm half Mexican and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been born and raised in Idaho, and I love spending time in the outdoors. my hobbies include Fly-fishing, Hunting, shooting guns, and snowboarding. I have a awesome family of four, including one older brother and 2 loving parents. I am very close with my family, we do many things together, such as camping, skiing and snowboarding, fishing, and floating the river. I have graduated from high school and have attended one year of college so far, at BYU-I. I loved it there. I want to become a Physicians assistant for a pediatrician. I have worked doing landscaping and have enjoyed it.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and was baptized when I was 8 like most Mormons. But it wasn't until I was 18 when I truly started to understand what a great blessing the gospel is and how it can bless peoples lives when we strive to live it. When I attended BYU-I after high school was when I really started to read the Book of Mormon. Once I started reading I could not put it down and the Holy Ghost testified to me of it's truthfulness. I know that this church is true and that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God. I know that when we do what the Lord wants us to do and follow the example of his son, Jesus Christ our lives can be so much happier and us and our family's will be blessed. Through Faith, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end we will return to live with our Heavenly Father once again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to do what I know is right. by following the example of Jesus Christ. I love to serve and help people any chance that I get. I love to attend church every Sunday where I can feel the Spirit and receive personal revelation. I love to read the scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon. I am currently serving a mission for 2 years in the Maryland, Baltimore mission. I love it!
