Hi I'm Ryan Roberts

I have lived my entire life in Utah. I am a missionary in New England. I love sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of 6 kids. I am serving a mission in the New Hampshire, Manchester Mission. I have taken a semester of college. I like to hunt and fish I also like to hang out with my friends. I enjoy doing anything in the outdoors. I absolutely love sports everything about them watching them, playing them with friends and family, talking about them anything and everything.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of this church. I stay a member of this church is because of the times that I have gotten on my knees and prayed to my Heavenly Father and He answered by sending His spirit to testify to me that everything that I am learning and doing is true and that this is His restored Church. I also continue to go because I know that this church is run by Jesus Christ through His chosen Prophet Thomas S. Monson. I also continue to go because of the spirit that I feel when I attend my church meetings and also because it makes me a better person. I know that Christ is our savior and redeemer. I know that he went through with the atonement because he loves everyone. I know that without the Atonement of Christ we couldn't return to live with God our Heavenly Father. I know that we have the power of God through the priesthood which was restored by the prophet Joseph Smith. I know that Joseph Smith is a true prophet of God and that the Book of Mormon which he translated by the gift and power of God is a true book that was written for this day and age to guide us through life. I came to this knowledge through prayer and searching, and you can as well.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by everyday making the choices that my father in Heaven would want me to make. I try my very best to do the things that the church teaches. I love doing service that is a big way for me to live my faith is to go out and serve my fellow brothers and sisters and by so doing my God also. With service I also love to serve in the church. Getting a calling and fulfilling it is one of the most rewarding things that I have ever done. I have been called as a primary teacher which is teaching kids under the age of 12 about the gospel. I have been home teaching for 4 years. I am a missionary and I am currently sacrificing two years of my life so that I can help people come unto Christ and join the church. From all my callings I have come to love the opportunities that I have to teach others the truths that I have come to know and live. I also try to live as the Savior did and become as much like him as I possibly can on this Earth.

In whom should we have faith?

Ryan Roberts
We should have faith in Jesus Christ. The reason we have faith in Jesus Christ is that he is our literal Savior and Redeemer. In the act of the Atonement he paid the price for all of our sins. He laid is life down so that we could return to Heavenly Father. We have faith in him because it is through him that we are able to return to live with God. Show more Show less
