Hi I'm Ryan Wilcken

I grew up in Maypearl, Texas, currently serving in the Ohio Cincinnati Mission.

About Me

I love family time, guitars, baseball, and the outdoors. I spent one semester of college at BYU-Idaho before going on my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I had a pretty great childhood, no complaints. My parents taught me right from wrong, took me to church, taught me how to worship God. Even though I was born into the church however, I still had to find out for myself that it is true. This involved several painfully bad choices that led to months of misery and depression. I hated it and I wanted out, back to the joy that I had before. So it took a while, but eventually I was able to regain that happiness by repentance made possible through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. My life is truly happier, and I continue to find joy as I live the Gospel and especially as I share it with others.

How I live my faith

Right now, I am devoting all of my time to serving the Lord as a missionary for 2 years in the Greatest Ohio Cincinnati Mission. I love it!
