Hi I'm Ryley

I grew up in California and am studying Biology. I am going on a Mission to Peru and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in Southern California. I am 19 in College in Idaho studying Biology to go into Biological Research in the fields of Genetics. I love sports, running, camping, hiking, and doing things with my friends and family. I come from a large family where my mom had three of her own kids and adopted seven more. I am the second youngest, with a sister less then a year older then me, and a brother less then a year younger then me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true Church. The message shared with me when I was 15 years old by two LDS Missionaries changed my life. I have come to know that this Church is the true Church. I have a strong Testimony of Joseph Smith the Prophet that Restored the Gospel in these latter days. I know Joseph translated the Book of Mormon, and I know that the Book of Mormon is given to us by God as another Testament of Jesus Christ. I know our Prophet Thomas S. Monson to be a true Prophet that leads and directs this church. I have a testimony of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Redeemer. His Atonement is for us, that we may return to our Heavenly Father. I know our Heavenly Father loves us, and knows us individually. I know I am a Child of God, and he loves me. I feel His love for me, and all of His children.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending my church meetings, and fulfilling my callings in the church. I live my faith by reading the scriptures that have been given to us, and praying daily to our Heavenly Father. I live my faith by keeping the commandments and following the Prophet. I am excited to live my faith by serving my Mission in the Peru Chiclayo Mission, and am doing everything to prepare to Serve the Lord for my Mission and for the rest of my life.
