Hi I'm Ryan

I live in Colorado, I play rugby and love being outside, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a kind and service oriented young man. My mama has taught me from a very young age that service needs to be a priority. I sure am an outdoors kind of guy! Anything to do with the outdoors.... I love it. I enjoy rock climbing, rafting, camping, hiking, and plenty more. Laughing and hanging out with my friends and family is one of my favorite things ever. I love playing the guitar and singing. I've played the guitar since I was twelve years old and have been playing ever since! I enjoy all different kinds of sports, but my favorites are basketball and rugby (an awesome sport). I'm currently a student at BYU- Idaho studying international studies and languages. I served a full time mission. Ten moths in the San Antonio mission and the rest of my mission in Belem Brazil. They were they best two years ever. I will be forever thankful for those two years.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in a great Mormon family. From a very young age I was taught to love those around me and be the person that God wanted me to be. While I was a teenager, I didn't pay much attention to the principles that my mother had taught me, which caused much reflection when I turned 18. I decided that I wanted to feel the love of God more in my life so I decided to start doing the things that I was taught since I was young. I'm a Mormon because living the Gospel of Jesus Christ brings me happiness. I'm a Mormon because I know that the principles that I was taught bring so much peace to me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be better each day. I strive to share the gospel with those around me whenever I can because I want them to know the truth and be happy! Serving a two year mission is how I wanted to show God that I was willing to be there for him. I try to serve those around me and help when an opportunity presents itself. Being a Mormon isn't just going to church every week, it's way more than that. To me, being a Mormon means caring for others, doing what's right, serving people around you, and loving Jesus Christ and God.
