Hi I'm Ryan

I leave for the MTC tomorrow (4/3/13); I am excited to serve a full time mission in Culiacan Mexico.

About Me

Hello my name is Ryan. I love to play the guitar and I am also a big fan of Classic Rock. I have been to BYU Idaho for one semester. I had so much fun at BYU Idaho, and I plan to go back there once I get back from my mission. I leave for the MTC tomorrow (4/3/13). I am serving in Culiacan, Mexico. I can't wait to go and I am really excited to go.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason that I am a Mormon is because I have felt the Spirit and the feelings it gives me has confirmed to me that the church is true. I love the Book of Mormon, I have enjoyed studying its teachings and I have felt the Holy Ghost while I study. I love learning, knowledge and our families are the only things that get to take with us when we die. Knowing this has helped me care less about all of the worldly things that can waste time or cause the Spirit to leave. I know that this church is true, no matter what anyone says to me against the church, I will always continue to be a member of this church. I know that with the power of God, we can do all things. I know that if we repent of our sins, God will forgive and forget them. I am glad to know that we can return to live with God again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be as Christ like as I can. I try to serve and help others as often as I can. I know that I can always improve at something, I am continually trying to make myself better. At BYU Idaho I was the Family Home Evening Coordinator. I had so much fun with that calling, I became really good friends with a lot of the people in that family. I love getting opportunities to help other people.
