Hi I'm Ryan

I grew up in Pleasant Grove, Utah. I love playing basketball and the guitar. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play sports, especially basketball and tennis. I also love to play the guitar and piano. I enjoy reading and learning about politics and different cultures. I am currently serving a mission in Montana, USA. When I am done serving a mission I hope to attend college at Brigham Young University.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have felt the love of my Heavenly Father, and my Savior Jesus Christ. I have had many struggles in my life, but through the gospel I have been able to have hope for my future and be forgiven of my sins. Everything good in my life has come in some way through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I cannot imagine living my life without it. I hope that everybody can feel that love of Christ like I have and will want to come unto him.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by serving those around me. I am a primary teacher for my church and I teach the ten and eleven year olds. I also live my faith by attending the temple as often as I can, and by reading the scriptures. The scriptures teach us that Jesus Christ is the ultimate example of living his faith and I try my best to learn from his example and serve all those around me.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

Very sacred things happen in our temples, and it is because of the sacred nature of what happens that only certain people are allowed to enter the temple. This way we can keep what goes on in the temple sacred and special. We strive to live righteous lives so that when we go to the temple we can feel our Heavenly Fathers love for us and grow and learn in our faith of Jesus Christ. In the temple we receive and provide ordinances for ourselves and for those who have died so that we can return to live with our Father in Heaven as eternal families. Show more Show less
