Hi I'm Rylee

I am a musical theater lover. I am going on a mission to Monterrey Mexico! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of 6 kids. I have been going to school to be an occupational therapist. I love to play golf. I enjoy anything that has to do with musical theater (performing in shows, watching shows, helping with shows... anything!). I love reading, learning, and doing anything crafty. I will be leaving soon to serve in Monterrey, Mexico as a full time missionary.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up going to church but as I have gotten older I have come to realize just how much the gospel of Jesus Christ means to me and how much it has influenced my life. The principles of the gospel bring me peace and joy in a world that is unpredictable and at times overwhelming. It is hard to be a young woman in a world with constantly fluctuating morals and values, but with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I have a foundation that is sure. I know that if I hold to the things I have been taught at church that I will have something real and solid to build my life upon, and that is so comforting to understand! I love knowing that I am a daughter of a God who loves and knows me personally and that I can build a personal relationship with my Savior. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and I am grateful that I can learn from it everyday.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by developing my relationship with my Heavenly Father everyday. I do that by not only reading my scriptures and praying but also serving those around me. I serve at church by teaching the women, although I always end up learning more by preparing the lesson than I am sure they get out of it. But that is part of the beauty of the gospel, everyone gets to learn and we are never done learning no matter how long we have been studying. I also always try to keep in mind that I want to be a representative of Christ which means that I need to do as he would do. I try to always be kind and grateful to those around me and then to express that gratitude.
