Hi I'm RyLee

I am currently growing up in Idaho. I love people and I am not shy to show who I am. I am a proud Mormon

About Me

Well, my name is RyLee. Currently I am not growing up in the gospel. My family is not active besides my sister and I. All I want for my family and parents is to be sealed in the temple and have eternal family. I'm working on it though and trying my best to have my family be more active. I am defiantly not shy and I love people and helping others. I am going through high school making as many friends as I can and keep a good head on my shoulders. Cheerleading is my life and I love every minute of it, but there is always time to put dirt bike riding and camping into my busy schedule. I strive to be a great Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

When I first moved into my ward, I was invited to go to church by some of the girls that lived down the road from me. They were very welcoming and happy to have me go to church with there family's. They soon learned that my siblings were not members of the church, and my hole family wasn't active. That's when the missionary's started coming over to my house and visiting with me. I knew what they wanted and what they planned to do. They planned to teach me the ordinances of the gospel and have me baptized. When the missionaries started teaching me the lessons my brother listened with me. Then we started to have discussions together. It was great having my brother learn this with me, but I wished my dad was okay with us learning about the gospel. I knew my dad had something against the church, and he had is own mindset about what the church was about. As the lessons went on my grandparents, aunts and uncles were proud of my brother and I. On December 25, 2010 we were baptized. It was a truly amazing feeling and I defiantly am grateful for the gift of the holy ghost. I am also thankful for the missionaries and there work, and definitely my best friends and leading me on the right path. I chose this religion because I know its true and I know the book of Mormon, scriptures and the church are all right. They aren't fiction stories put together in a book. There real life events that are true and have happened. The gift of the holy ghost is a amazing gift and it has led me on the right path when I am on the wrong. Now, I am going to serve a mission and try to live my life in the gospel and I promised myself I was going to interest my dad and mom to go to church and live the gospel with me.

How I live my faith

Last year I got my first calling in Young Woman's as a Second Counselor. I was very excited about this calling because I got to plan the activity's and lessons for church and mutual. It was a great calling and I'm glad I was blessed to have it.
