Hi I'm Ryan Woodfield

I am a proud older brother and an even prouder younger brother. I love my family and the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am a mormon.

About Me

I recently graduated from High School with plans to attend BYU - Provo after serving my full-time mission. In high school I enjoyed a plethora of hobbies, but also was focused on learning and academical achievement. I love to play sports, including football, basketball, tennis, ping pong, volleyball, and many others. I have a passion for music. I love to sing. I have played the piano since I was 4 years old, and just recently learned how to play the guitar and uke. I excelled academically and graduated with a 4.0 GPA with taking numerous AP courses (which include: Ap psych, calc, language, and history), sustaining a part time job, and playing on the tennis team. I also love my family and friends, and enjoy spending time with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I believe it to be the Church of God. I believe that Christ is the head of this church. He is my savior and redeemer and has asked that we follow Him. I am a mormon because this is how I am following my savior Jesus Christ. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is God's true church on the earth. He has given us the blessing of the gospel this I have come to know. I was born in the church and consequently was an active member because of the faith of my parents. But, as it happens there comes a time when we must all find out for ourselves what we choose to believe and what we know. I have come to the knowledge on my own that this is the true church of God. I am a mormon because this is where I feel of Christ's love in it's fullest. I am a mormon because the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ, I know because i've read it and believe it to be true. I am a mormon because Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God and restored The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to the earth. I am a mormon because when I pray at night I feel of God's love and mercy. I am a mormon because of my savior Jesus Christ and his sacrifice for me. I am a mormon because it brings me closer to Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by acting on it. Weekly I enjoy going to church and renew my covenants made to Jesus Christ. There I am called as the first assistant to the bishop in my quorum. In that calling I look after the church members particularly those that are in my quorum. Seeing as how I have been called as a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints my "calling" in the church will soon change to full-time missionary service. I live my faith by preparing myself to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ and will be living in faith while on my mission. Monthly I faithfully fulfill my home teaching privilege as my dad and I visit 2 families in our neighborhood and watch over them. I also weekly bring the gospel to people in old folks home, as a group of friends and I sing hymns to the sick people in the Heritage Care Center in our community.
