Hi I'm Ryan Hudson

Im a missionary in the New England. Im a twin. Im from Idaho. I love life. I choose to be happy. And I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am on a Mission in New Hampshire. I am a twin in a family of 7. I've been apart of scouts, student council, Business Professionals of America, and plays. I play tennis and then pretend to be good at others. I have a passion for movies. I would love to director when I get older, but we will see what the future holds. I enjoy art and good stories. I love to laugh. I love to travel, and go on family vacations. I have learned family is everything, and we are all apart of Heavenly Father's family. My life mottos are "Choose to be Happy" and "You are what you love, not what loves you."

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was born into a family of members, and have grown up with the LDS religion all my life, there came a day where I had to pray earnestly and know for myself if the church is true. So I did. I know I can say without a doubt that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God and he translated the Book of Mormon which I hold as sacred scriptures. As a missionary I know this is the true Church, and I want everyone to be apart of it. Life is hard but through the love of Christ anything can be made better. I hope this sounds sincere, because it is. The church is a wonderful thing, and I love it.

How I live my faith

I have been a member my whole life. Besides going to church, I've been in Boy Scouts and attended seminary. Before my mission I was called to be the "Assistant Ward Clerk" which means slightly organizing who lives where and if someone has moved. I also have gotten to sit up front wear the clerk usually sits and gotten to count how many people are attending church that week. At the moment, I am on a Mission in New England. It is a challenge at times but there are so many people Ive met that have only shown me how much Jesus Loves his children and living the Gospel is so important.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a member is just like being normal. We are all about being clean--mentally, physically and spiritually. Thats why we avoid certain things in life. Show more Show less
