Hi I'm Ryan

I'm from Boise, Idaho. I like to hunt and fish. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a student at BYU. Being in college is tons of fun but at the same time it is a lot of work trying to keep up with school, friends, family and church. I love being fishing, hiking and just being in the outdoors. I also enjoy playing many different sports, including; football, basketball, and tennis.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because it brings be true happiness and provides me with direction in my life. I know this is the true church of Jesus Christ because when I have exercised faith in Him I have felt that the Mormon church is His true church. I have had ups and downs in my life just like everyone else. My high points have put my faith in Him and followed His teachings and the teachings of His church. The Book of Mormon and the Bible are the word of God. As I read from the Book of Mormon I had indescribably strong feelings that it was truly scripture translated by the prophet Joseph Smith. I know that Christ is our Savior and that through Him we can be forgiven and we can return to live with our Father in Heaven. I have felt of His love and His presence and I know He is there for us and that this is His true church on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I think the way live my faith is through thinking of others. I try my best to recognize others needs and help them where I can. I will shortly have an opportunity to dedicate 2 years of my life to the service of God. I will be on a mission in El Salvador serving those around me and teaching people about the gospel of Jesus Christ.
