Hi I'm Ryan

I grew up in Salt Lake City and love life! I am soon going to get married to the love of my life in June!

About Me

I am currently going to college at BYU and I am studying Mechanical Engineering. I recently returned from a LDS mission from Mexico! Me encanta hablar en espanol. I like to camp, bike, and just learn.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon. Why? Cause it makes me happy. I know it is true. I feel like Joseph Smith sometimes. Where I know that this church is true. I know it cause God told me so. And I cannot deny what I have felt because God knows that I know. I am a Mormon because I want to return with God again after this life and because I want to raise my soon-to-be family in a positive and wholesome environment in which we will have the chance to live forever together.

How I live my faith

My faith is not defined by a name, Mormon, Christian, etc., but rather the way that I live. I feel the best way that I share and live my faith is by the smile on my face. My church is not something that I go to just on Sundays. It is a way of life. My church affects every aspect of my life. I help out every Sunday with organizing membership records and making sure everything is in order as a ward clerk. It is great. I love to serve and grow everyday a little bit more like Christ.

What is being a Mormon like?

Awesome! It is fantastic to have the sure foundation of the Savior. I do not know where I would be without the Church. It has helped me come more close to the Savior than I once thought possible. Show more Show less
