Hi I'm Ryan

I grew up in Salt Lake City. I am a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up loving Sports. Some of my best memories growing up have been on a field. I also just love to be outside. Living in Utah, the mountains have been a huge part of my life. Anytime I can be up there I am. Spending time with my family and friends make me the happiest. And I happen to currently be serving in the Samoa Apia Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the hope I feel as I center my life around Christ. Nobody is perfect, everybody makes mistakes, but it is so awesome to know that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, I can move past my shortcomings, and be happy. I do not know everything, but I do know that Jesus Christ lives. I have a hope that I can one day return to live with him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through Service. The church provides so many opportunities for us to serve. It is amazing. I love the humble happiness that comes when I forget myself and focus on the needs of others. That is when I feel the closest to Christ.
