Hi I'm Briel Ranker

I am creative, I have FSHD, I am a Daughter of God, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello, I am an artist. I draw, create, and express. I like to see things differently and in new ways that other people may not see them. My favorite things include art, reading, writing, and some out doors things. My family always jokes that if I have disappeared its because I am reading. I also enjoy law and acting. My greatest hope in life is to serve others as much as possible and to help as much as I can. FSHD is a muscular disease that I have that eats away muscle mass. It is something that is a big part of my life and has taught me many great lessons.

Why I am a Mormon

There are many reasons why I am a Mormon. The first is that I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints teaches the Gospel of Jesus Christ and that I have received a personal witness of that fact. Second is that the Gospel of Jesus Christ brings life to even the darkest and coldest places. One of my favorite things about being a Mormon is the unity that comes from living my faith. For me being a Mormon is a way of life, living the Gospel of Jesus Christ is a way of life. My name is Briel Ranker. I am a Mormon. I know it, I live it, I love it, and I share it.

How I live my faith

I have learned that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are always in our lives. God is the master artist and I admire the care He has put into this world He has created. My parents have always encouraged me and my sisters to have a relationship with God and Jesus Christ through prayer, going to church, and reading the Bible and the Book of Mormon. Life is hard and it has trials but there is always more good than bad in this universe. I rely on God for everyday things like strength. One of My favorite ways to honor Him is to help others.
