Hi I'm Ryan

I grew up in Syracuse Utah and have had the opportunity to travel all around the country. I am a Mormon

About Me

I consider myself a husband and father first and find my greatest joy and satisfaction spending time with my family and seeing my children grow and develop. I love being in the outdoors, playing racquetball, reading and watching and participating in sports. I particularly love baseball and have played and coached my children for many years.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because of the many blessings that I have received by living the standards and doctrines of the church. I know that I am a better father, husband and person because of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have spent much time in my life learning about many different religions and believe that most religions have so much good in them however, I believe that the fulness of the gospel that Jesus taught during his ministry is found in the LDS church. I also love that families can be eternal and that we can be together as families after this life.

How I live my faith

Over the years I have had the chance to serve in my church and in my community. I love working with our youth in scouting as well as in programs for young men and young women. I am currently serving as a Bishop in the church which has been a great blessing to me and my family. As a Bishop I have the chance to help people overcome trials, progress spiritually and most importantly to learn more about what our Savior Jesus Christ has done for us. I have also been blessed with opportunities to help families come closer to one another and improve their relationships together.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Families are so important to Mormons because of the teaching that the family unit is ordained of God and that we are meant to be together as family units for eternity. Families also give us purpose and meaning in our every day lives as we help each other to become better and learn to be accepting of individuals as each family member is different. Show more Show less
