Hi I'm Ryan

I'm from Colorado. I love to snowboard and hike. I'm kind of a big nerd and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in Colorado and I love the mountains. I love to be outside and be doing something that's fun like snowboarding, hiking or just messing around. I would consider myself a pretty laid back person who just wants to be happy and make sure that others are happy no matter what I'm doing. I'm also pretty into ancient languages. I've studied Latin, classical Greek and biblical Hebrew. I started studying those languages just because I thought it would be cool but now that I've started to study the scriptures in their original languages its started to be really useful. I also have attended Brigham Young University- Idaho for two semesters with a major in Physics. Currently I'm serving a mission in the Oregon Portland Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it lets me know that there is a greater purpose to our lives. It lets me know what our Heavenly Father wants for me on this earth. I know that by being a member of this church it has given me direction in my life that my friends who are not members lack. It gives my life a purpose and comforts me whenever I go through tough times in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith pretty simply. I go to church on Sundays and I read my scriptures. I make sure that I'm following what Christ and the prophet has told us to do. I don't go out of my way to do that or anything its just something that I've made a habit of. When I do or watch something I think if I would be comfortable doing it if my parents or my bishop were in the room with me. If I wouldn't feel comfortable doing it if they were watching me I wouldn't do it. Its pretty simple to follow the commandments if that's what you think of.
