Hi I'm Ryan Taylor

I live in Southern California. I am currently serving a mission in the Cape Verde Praia mission. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Some things I like to do are play lacrosse, basketball, and beach volleyball. I also enjoy wakeboarding, dirt biking, and snowboarding. I am currently serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Cape Verde.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was blessed enough to be born into the church to my wonderful parents. I was blessed enough to have the family that I have and the examples they are in my life. I love this church and the guidence it gives. I am grateful to know that families can live together forever. That is a great blessign to me to know that I can be with my family after thsi life. I am grateful for the Book of Mormon and the truthfullness of it. I enjoy reading it every day and feeling of the spirit that this book has. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and to know it is true I can pray to my Heavenly Father and seek to know it is true and he will bless me with an answer. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet who was called of God to restore this church to the earth in our times and also to translate the Book of Mormon for us. I am grateful for the joy and happiness the gospel brings me in my life. I know this is Christ's true church on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my hardest to be an example of Christ at all times. People are always watching me and how different I am from the world. I try to show my faith through my actions and example.
