Hi I'm Ryan

I'm from California. I love serving the Lord. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love music! I play the piano, guitar, banjo, the mandolin and I sing. I am called to serve a mission for the Lord! I love old, classic cars and working out. In my future, I plan to be a paramedic and eventually become an Emergency Room Physician Assistant.

Why I am a Mormon

I was actually born into this church. As you can imagine, going to church every single Sunday ever since I was little caused me to take things for granted. When I was about 14 or 15 I started to have many questions, even though I subconsciously knew the answers, I never understood them. So, I decided to read the Book of Mormon, I read it from cover to cover and I knew that every single word was the truth! It gave me so much knowledge about our Savior and it helped me to grow closer to Him. I have read it a few times since then and I continue to read it. I've prayed to know whether the church was true and I received an answer to my prayers that it was absolutely and completely true! Having a knowledge of the gospel has caused me to think in a different way, it has caused me to help other people when previously I might have not. More importantly, it has brought me happiness. And I know that anyone who reads the Book of Mormon with a sincere heart and a desire to know the truth and a desire to study the principles therein, will know that it is true. I know that prophets exist today, and they live to guide us through these tumultuous times. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and he worked to restore the true and living gospel of Jesus Christ to the world! I know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet and he does so much to serve the Lord and His children. I am truly grateful for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and I know that it is true, without a doubt! I say these things in the name of our beloved savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I go to church every single Sunday. Church is a wonderful place to enrich my life through obtaining knowledge of the Lord and feeling the sweet warmth of the Holy Spirit. I serve as a pianist in my ward when we meet for certain meetings. I am also called to serve a full-time mission in Mexico.
