Hi I'm Dallen Rhyasen

I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. I am currently serving a mission in the Arizona, Mesa Mission. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest in my family. I come from a split family with my parents being divorced since I was ten. I have a younger sister, two younger step-sisters, two younger step-brothers, and one half brother. I love sports and have played soccer most of my life until my Senior year in high school when I decided to play rugby and fell in love with the sport. I also snowboard in the Winter and surf in the Summer. That's pretty much my life summed up in 500 characters.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because as I have lived the commandments of God they make me happier. Why would you not want to be happy in this life? That is simply why I choose to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by the everyday actions and things I do. It's become more and more apparent to me as i've become older that people do notice your mormon, so I live to my standards and strive to keep the commandments of God. I taught the Gospel Principles class in preparation for serving a mission and it has helped me understand the most basic principles of the gospel more than I could ever imagine. Now I am serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Mesa, Arizona area.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Dallen Rhyasen
The missionaries just want to talk and see a friendly face. They are going to tell you how much your Heavenly Father loves you and that Jesus Christ loves you too. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Dallen Rhyasen
The Book of Mormon is a record of holy scripture comparable to the Bible. There is the Old Testament the New Testament and Another Testament (or The Book of Mormon). All three of those books testify that Jesus Christ is the Savior and Redeemer of the world. You can know that The Book of Mormon is true by reading and praying about it. I have done that very thing! That is how I know that The Book of Mormon is true! Show more Show less
