Hi I'm Ryan

Father of 5, Soccer Coach, Scout Leader, OSP Engineer, and I'm a Utah Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah as a Proud Mormon Boy. I served an LDS Mission to Bogota Colombia. I love my life and I love my family. I am now a father of 5 wonderful kids. I am a Licensed Soccer Coach for a competitive soccer league. I am a life long Scouter and continually help to teach and train youth to become leaders. My wife is my best friend, and I like to Run.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a Mormon and ever since I was a small child I loved the gospel. I knew that what I was being taught at Church and from my Parents was true. When I was young I went to church because all my friends were at church, but I soon gained a testimony of the gospel and Jesus Christ and I started going to church because I knew I should and I was happy whenever I did. I learned to pray as a child and I prayed fervently as a youth to know the truth of Joseph Smith, the Book of Mormon, and the Church of Jesus Christ. To be honest, I have never doubted, and the Spirit of the Lord has testified to me through the Holy Ghost that "This Gospel is True, and that this is the work and True Church of Jesus Christ".

How I live my faith

I am a leader over Young Men (Youth) in my Church, on the soccer field, and through Scouting. I love to work with them to help them become more like our Savior Jesus Christ and to achieve personal goals.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

No, we worship God (Our Heavenly Father) and Jesus Christ! But I would like to say how pivotal Joseph Smith was in the Restoration of Christ's Church. He was wonderful and brave man, who established, guided and directed Christs church. This church is "The Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints." By the Power of the Priesthood true gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth. Joseph Smith was a wonderful man and in my eyes is a great Hero to the world. Show more Show less
