Hi I'm Ryan Ramin Lawson

I grew up in Worthington, Ohio and am called to serve in the Scottsdale Arizona Mission.

About Me

I enjoy playing chess, working, and attending church activities.

Why I am a Mormon

It is the true church of Jesus Christ with more precious scripture, The Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I'm currently serving as a Sacrament Coordinator and a home teacher for my young single adult ward.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Ryan Ramin Lawson
God has called prophets to lead His Church in our day, just as He did anciently. The current prophet and President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Thomas S. Monson. He is assisted by two counselors—Henry B. Eyring and Dieter F. Uctdorf. Together, they make up the First Presidency of the Church (much like Peter, James, and John after Christ’s death). All members of the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles are apostles and prophets. The current Apostles are: Boyd K. Packer L. Tom Perry Russell M. Nelson Dallin H. Oaks M. Russell Ballard Richard G. Scott Robert D. Hales Jeffrey R. Holland David A. Bednar Quentin L. Cook D. Todd Christofferson Neil L. Andersen Show more Show less
