Hi I'm Ryan.

I LOVE playing sports, learning and trying new things. I try to be happy and optimistic at all times. Life is good. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Washington and don't mind the rain. First off, I love EVERYTHING. Sports, Art, Talking, Movies, everything. A few favorites include meeting new people, spending time outdoors, and I really love sports. All sports really. I'd much rather play a sport than to watch it and especially love playing with large groups of random people I don't know. I love to learn and really enjoy school and the environment around me when I'm there. I am called to be a missionary in Fort Collins, Colorado Mission and I am looking forward to completing my two year mission with enthusiasm. I return home in February 2018 and look forward to school at BYU-Idaho.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in this church but I was converted when I was 16. I went to an LDS summer camp and learned for myself the truth of the Book of Mormon. I was praying to know if the church was true and I felt the most warming love of God. I immediately broke into tears and couldn't help it. I was so happy and felt the joy and care that Christ has for all of us. Ever since then I have taken the lessons and doctrine of this church more seriously and love living it every day.

How I live my faith

I love to discuss everything, including religion. I do not like heated discussions but enjoy it when people are open about their beliefs. I love to live my faith by example and by letting it show in who I am but not to flaunt. I love serving others and my community. I am currently serving a mission to spread the word of God and am enjoying every day of it. The Book of Mormon and having restored truth is such a blessing in my life. I love the Gospel and my family.
