Hi I'm Ryan

I am from Orange County California. I love to play basketball and learn about business. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love all kinds of sports. I played varsity basketball in high school and my favorite team is the Phoenix Suns because Steve Nash is my favorite player of all time. I'm going on a mission soon and after I will be going to college to study business. I love spending time with friends and family when I can, especially when we can all have fun with some friendly competition.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because at the times when I have kept the commandments the best, I have been the happiest and had the least stress. Life still comes with challenges, but if I am living righteously I don't have to worry about them as much because I know that somehow eventually everything will turn out ok. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and I have prayed about the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon and I know it is true. And since I know it is true, I want to live the most righteously I can because I want to be able to live with my family and Heavenly Father after I die.

How I live my faith

I will soon be going down to Peru to teach the people there about the Church and serve them however I can. Here in California I have been able to help lead a group of young teenage guys. We were able to do everything from white water rafting and rock climbing to pulling weeds out of an elderly woman's backyard.
