Hi I'm Ryan Watmough

I'm a Canadian, I love the outdoors especially the mountains and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have previously worked at a heavy duty equipment shop. I like learning how things work and I enjoy repairing machines. I feel satisfied when I can problem solve and repair problems. After work I enjoy being outdoors. Nothing brings more peace and joy in my life than to enjoy Heavenly Fathers creations. To get away from the noise of the city, vehicles and other people refocuses my view on life and brings peace to my soul. I enjoy motor sports as well. Going dirt-biking, quading, mountain biking and boating also helps me to further enjoy Heavenly Father's creations by seeing many more spectacular views. My favorite summertime activity is to quad to the peak of a mountain and listen to the silence and feel the peace that comes with it.

Why I am a Mormon

Life is full of uncertainties, such as a future career, spouse, family and most certainly death. Even in this uncertain life, the Gospel strengthens me to be certain about my life before mortality as well as after mortality. This church teaches where we all came from, what we are doing on this Earth and where we will go if we make different choices while we are here.This church teaches that we can and will live with our family for eternity if we follow Christ's teachings. I believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly. The Book of Mormon IS the most correct book on Earth, I love to read, study and ponder its teachings. I know that we have a living prophet on the Earth who operates under the direction of Jesus Christ. The prophet is truly called of God and I fully support him and his decisions. By listening to the prophets words, and studying the Book of Mormon we can become very close to Jesus Christ and we can become to know him.

How I live my faith

To stay strict to God commandments, I strive everyday to stand out from the world. I do my best to not waver or give into the worlds temptations. Acting upon what this gospel teaches shows my love for Heavenly Father and all he has given me. Each Monday I participate in Family Home Evening activities which are for fun, good family time and ties in to the Gospel(the teachings of Jesus Christ). Several other days of the week I attend Institute, which are classes similar to Sunday school where we learn about Gospel principles and other YSA members attend. During these classes great knowledge is shared and it brings the Holy Ghost more abundantly throughout the week. Soon I will be privileged to serve a full time mission for the Lord Jesus Christ. I am grateful for this opportunity to serve the Lord because I know I will grow so much spiritually from it. I want each and every person to hear the message of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ because I want them to fell the same joy and spirit that I have felt over and over again. I am currently serving a mission in the GKLM and loving it!! There is nothing I love more than to serve the Lord and to study the gospel. I have realized after serving as a representative of Jesus Christ that all other activities I liked to do becomes shallow. I feel as if there is no greater work on the Earth than to represent Jesus Christ and share his gospel truths. There is something deep within me that never wants to stop sharing the gospel. I hope to always share the great message of the Book of Mormon and the Restored gospel with everyone I meet.
