Hi I'm Ryan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 29 years old and I have been married to my sweet wife for 3 and a half years now. We both grew up in California but schooling has take us to a couple different states now and I am currently surviving my first year of graduate school. I love spending time with friends and family playing games, movies, sports and being outdoors. My wife and I have recently discovered taking walks together. Its one of my favorite times of the day because we enjoy completely uninterrupted conversation and take a break from a busy day together.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon along with the Bible have helped me to trust in him and have led me to a happier way of life. I took the time to pray about whether these things are true and the peace I have felt in my heart as I did so sincerely is undeniable.

How I live my faith

I have a blast every Sunday teaching a Sunday school class of 12-13 year olds. As I teach them I often think of what I needed when I was that age. The idea I always come back to is a strong faith in Jesus Christ. I work to build my own faith in Jesus Christ each day. I take a few moments each day to pray and to read the scriptures. Ive noticed that when I am sincere and take the time to just stop and think about what I am reading, I gain a greater clarity and benefit from this. I am trying to follow the example of the Savior in my life by focusing on other people instead of myself. I have found that the greatest happiness comes from trying to help others to be happy. I forget about my own insecurities, worries, and inconsistencies.
