Hi I'm Ryan Krause

I was born and raised in San Diego CA. I love to Surf. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I really enjoy the chance I get to live near the Ocean. Surfing is one of my biggest interests. I love going with my friends on a nice cool moring then afterwards grabbing a breakfast burrito. During the academic year I attend BYU provo. I am Studying Physical Education and hope to be a teacher one day. I have a Mother and Father two sibling and two dogs who love the water. Life is good.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the ability and desire I have to better myself. As a youth I never took the church seriously and for a span of a few years after highschool, never tested my faith. My return back to the chruch is a story of Joy and Happiness and because I was able to experience life without my Faith, and gain true perspectives on life, I have a full understanding of my purpose. The church helped me come out of darkness and into the light and now I cannot contain that desire to share this truth with everyone who needs to hear it. I have a testimony about the Church because it is a way we can all become one and share the endless joy of Happiness. I know it is the true church of God because of the revelation I have recieved. Anyone can become great within this Gospel, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I Testify of these things and know they are True because of prayer and seeking with a Sincere heart. This church has helped me in so many ways and because of it i am closer to my family. I have overwhelming joy for everyone I meet and love the faith I have.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church. I recently was called on a mission to Serve in Mesa AZ. I have to learn how to speak spanish. So currently I am called as a full time missionary and cant wait to share the Gospel with those i come into contact with.

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

Ryan Krause
There are a few things that my knowledge of his existence stems from. First is the harmony of which everything works. There is nothing that sticks out or is odd but perfectly fit into its circumstances which tells me that at one point things were mapped out and planned. There are natural laws that govern the universe. Secondly, the feelings that humans have toward one another. The wide range of emotion. Joy, pleasure, pain and so forth. For me I have a deep sense of love for my family and I know they love me. Why would that matter if there was no God? Why would have the sense of love ever developed in man if there was no God? I know that God lives and it is our love for Him that will ultimately take us home to him again. Show more Show less
