Hi I'm Ryan Hernandez

I love sports, music of all kinds, the BIGGEST BYU FAN you will ever to meet, and going on adventures!

About Me

I grew up loving to play soccer, baseball, golf, football, especially ping pong, and the frequent family game nights. I am currently studying at BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY, and love going crazy at all BYU sporting events.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason I am Mormon is because it has brought me the greatest happiness, peace, and joy in my entire life. I was born into the Church, and through this I saw the true purpose of the Gospel and its effects it has on the Family. That is how my testimony started, when my Father showed me what it means to truly be a priesthood holder and my mother showing me the happiness of coming through the Gospel. Then I decided to answer the call to serve a mission for the Church, and this decision was truly the greatest decision I have ever made in my life. I have learned that there is nothing more true, and right in the entire world. And the only way that this knowledge and testimony came is through reading the Book of Mormon and prayerfully seeking the truth that comes through it. After receiving a witness of the Divinity of the book through the Holy Ghost. The more I study the Book of Mormon, I came to the knowledge that there is no possible way that anyone man could write such a book. Unless he was given the power and authority of God to do so. And that is my firm testimony that Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God and He received the power and authority to restore the True Church of Christ here on this earth today. So we can receive the blessings that come from the Gospel.

How I live my faith

When I was young my parents have always taught me that to always serve the ones around you. Through my life a major life lesson that I have learned that some of the best teachers are the best examples to their family, friends, and loved ones. That is how I live my faith by trying to be disciple of Jesus Christ in all times, things and places like our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who was the perfect example. Actions always speak louder than words.
