Hi I'm Ramsey Schroeder

I grew in Germany, Italy, and the U.S. I'm a writer. I am currently serving a mission in San Diego California, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to read, as well as write. I have moved all around the world and seen many different things. I love exploring. I am currently serving a mission in San Diego California. I am the son of two amazing parents, and the second oldest of four. My older brother Mikhail, is currently serving a mission in Stockholm Sweden and finishes in November. I have been serving a mission for approximately 14 months.

Why I am a Mormon

Why I became a Mormon is very stereotypical. I was Baptized when I was because my parents stressed it as being very important, however why I am still a Mormon is a little different. I, like all of us, have done many things that I am not proud of, but through proper, thorough repentance, I have been able to obtain a testimony of the cleansing power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Through prayer and fasting I have also been able to have several experiences in which the Holy Ghost has testified to me, by speaking peace to my soul, that The Book of Mormon is the word of God. I also know by that same peace that Joseph Smith is a Prophet, and that God is real, is mindful of me, and he loves me.

How I live my faith

I have been apart of the LDS Church all of my life. I am currently an Elder in this church. I am Serving a mission in San Diego California. I constantly strive to look for those who need the Gospel, I offer service to those in need, and I am always looking to serve the Lord in any way I can. I have set aside two years of my life doing what the Lord wants me to do rather than what I naturally enjoy. Within my service so far, I have had to lay aside many things I love in order to fully commit all my time and attention to serving the Lord. Doing this has allowed me to experience true untainted joy, from serving those around me, as well as putting God before anything. I try constantly to not only feel God's love, of which he gives freely to all, but to feel of his trust as well, which he gives only to those who diligently strive to keep his commandments.
