Hi I'm Ryan

I was born and grew up in Utah. I'm an Eagle Scout and love the sport of wrestling. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 18 years old and am headed on a mission to Busan Korea. I wresteled in high school and took 5th at the state tournament. That's my favorite sport of all. I also played soccer my whole life. And i decided to try out football my senior year as the kicker and did pretty well. I love to work out and hit the gym every day no matter what. I also enjoy training muai thai, ju jitsu and mma. I love to help people with whatever they need and like to meet new people.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to a loving mom and dad who were already mormon and i was one of those screaming babies you see at sacrament meeting. I grew up in His church and have only missed a few times. Now this is not to say I wasn't converted and was born with a testimony. It wasn't till I was baptized and given the gift of the Holy Ghost at age 8 did i come to find that I was doing the right thing. And I never knew if everything I was told was true until I truely read the Book of Mormon and prayed about. Only then did I know that this was His church.

How I live my faith

I have always been the odd duck in a small ward. My neighborhood is relativly old and we only have a handful of youth. I'm the only one my age and the next oldest is only 15 and the next oldest is 20. So i am the 1st assistant in the preist quorum since the bishop is the president and I'm the only preist in the ward. Being the oldest I have been set in a leadership position and have taken it as a blessing. I love hanging out with the teachers and deacons and teaching them all I know about how to be a respectable man. Most the time only teachers and deacons will do fast packs and set up the sacrament. But I enjoy leading through example and doing all of my former duties with the younger guys.
