Hi I'm Rylie

I grew up in Foster Care and found peace in Christ. I'm Mormon.

About Me

I grew up with many families and was able to experience a lot. I probably enjoyed rock climbing the most as a kid because I did it with my brother it was my favorite bonding experience. These days when I am not working or going to school. I spend my time playing some video games, writing, drawing, reading and just enjoying life. I enjoy being actively doing things. When I am with other people I like to play sports such as football, ultimate Frisbee, and basketball. I had served as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and it was one of the best experiences in my life. So I may have been one of those people who had knocked on your door. haha As you can tell humor keeps me alive and smiling.

Why I am a Mormon

Well when I talked about me a little bit ago, I explained that I grew up with many families. It is hard to explain why I am Mormon without making this more like a written essay, but I will say that the feeling of the Holy Ghost and the feeling of true peace can't be duplicated. If you are not Mormon or a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I would at least recommend meeting with missionaries so you can understand more and feel that peace. Let me explain a bit really quick. When you have had something dramatic happen in your life like the loss of a loved one or maybe just a daily struggle you could try to explain it to someone but they just won't fully understand. They will know what you are talking about but don't share the same emotions or understanding as you because they didn't live that experience. So again I would ask you to seek for missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints so you can feel and understand what I am trying to explain. Experience it for yourself.

How I live my faith

What one of my duties is at church is that I help schedule and help make things known so the people in our area know when we are having meeting throughout the week and who they can contact. Previously I played the piano in church meetings. I felt quite inadequate at times but I improved playing the piano and have gained understanding while I served my Church members. Being able to serve others has provided me with the feeling of being needed, while it also helped me to become better. So I strive to help people no matter where I am because I feel like that is what Christ would do.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Rylie
The missionaries will ask you to pray and read so that you can know that the message they share is true. They will do that so you can receive that testimony from our Father in Heaven (God). They also do this so you can have a better understanding of who we are and what we believe. My favorite part is that they focus on your relationship with God and Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

Rylie
I would say that stopping the spread of pornography starts with us. You are the one person that can change your life and influence others in the process. Jesus Christ set the example that one person can truly make a difference. The more that we draw near to our Savior we will make choices that helps us increase our love for Him and all our brothers and sisters. We will think more like him, act more like him and sound more like him by developing a Christlike way of life. In no way are we perfect like him but he believes in our potential or else He wouldnt have done what He did. We dont show respect for others by looking upon them in such a way that tares our souls apart. If we are looking for love or the right person that is not the way love is displayed in patience and timing just as our Heavenly Father has shown us with all things that He has done in our lives. I know we can make a difference because many people have made the difference in my life. If you would like to know more I recommend reading about Chastity and talking with the missionaries.
