Hi I'm Ryan

I grew up in Utah. I am a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a typical 18 year old boy. I work for my dad, enjoy being outdoors, and enjoy playing sports. I am a huge fan pf the Utah Jazz and the BYU Cougars. I rarely miss a game for either. I enjoy spending time with my friends, and enjoy getting to meet new people. I live getting to hear people's stories and learn what makes them the person they are.

Why I am a Mormon

This gospel means so much to me! During high school, I had a really hard time with friends. I felt like no one wanted me to be around and that they didn't like me. This often led me to feel extremely lonely. The great thing about this gospel though, is that no one is ever truly alone. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is truly a service-oriented church. While serving people, I have not only grown closer to those who I have served, but also my Savior Jesus Christ. I am so grateful that He would die for me, so that I can live, and try my hardest to become like Him.

How I live my faith

My faith is a big part of my life. Each morning I wake up at 6:30 and read the scriptures. This is a great way to start of the day, because it helps me grow closer to my Savior Jesus Christ. I am preparing to serve in the Washington DC South mission. I will be speaking Chinese, so each day I spend at least six hours learning how to speak Chinese. I also teach those who want to learn more about our faith! I love getting to teach others!
