Hi I'm Ryan

From Bountiful, Utah. Currently living in New Jersey as an LDS Missionary.

About Me

I'm Ryan, and I'm a huge fan of cereal and pizza. I love playing basketball, watching movies, listening to music, and just being outside. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends, just enjoying life as it is. I'm currently living in New Jersey as a missionary for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Everyday is an adventure and adventures are my favorite part of life!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my parents raised me in this religion. I ultimately had to choose to accept the teachings of this church, and I came to know that it was true by reading the Book of Mormon and asking God if it was true. I am a Mormon because it is the Church of Christ, God's Kingdom, here on the Earth. I am a Mormon because of the focus on family, self-improvement, and service. I am grateful to be a Latter Day Saint.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by the way I think and act.. I am motivated by my faith in Jesus Christ to serve others, become better each day by overcoming my weaknesses, and live like Christ would. I live my faith by sharing the things I know to be true with others. I live my faith by viewing others as my brothers and sisters, then treating them like they are family. Faith is everything.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Mormon missionaries proselyte to invite others to come unto Christ and learn about Christ's Restored Gospel. It is a way for the good news of the Gospel of Christ to be proclaimed throughout the world. Mormon missionaries understand the importance of "being an example of the believers", and simply desire to share what they know to be true with everyone. Mormon missionaries are motivated by a love for God and His children and have desires to help others feel just how much God loves them. Show more Show less
