Hi I'm Ryan Scott

I'm a BYU student. A missionary serving in Puebla, Mexico. A brother and son. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been a member of the church for my whole life. Growing up in Arizona it was easy to share the Gospel and practice right standards. In high school, I was in my school's orchestra. I played the cello and even had the opportunity to play at Carnegie Hall in New York City! I also played volleyball and soon after it became my favorite sport. I love hanging out with my family. They are by far my favorite people in the world. I love my wiener dog, Lulu. I am a citizen of Canada and the U.S. I am an Eagle Scout that doesn't like to camp. I love missionary work and am so glad I have the chance to share the gospel and meet so many people. Life has its challenges, but it's great!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I have prayed about whether or not it is the true church and have felt a strong confirmation that it is. It is my life. I grew up as a member and love the Church. I know the Book of Mormon is the truest book on earth. I have read it multiple times and asked God in the name of Christ, with real intent, if the Book of Mormon is a true book. I know without a shadow of a doubt that it is. The Church brings me so much joy. I couldn't imagine my life without the church. I'm grateful for this Gospel and everything it has given me.

How I live my faith

I try to be the best example I can always. Even if I'm in a bad mood, I try not to show it. I grew up in a community where many people were members of the Church so most people knew what a Mormon was. Most kids from my high school were always willing to learn about the church. Sometimes they would have a question and I would try to answer it to the best of my ability. I love going to church and learning about the Gospel. I am going to be serving a mission for the Church from February 2013 - February 2015 and I am so excited to share the Gospel to those who are seeking it!
