Hi I'm Ryan

I was born in Provo Utah, I've lived all around Utah and I have lived in Texas. I Love my family, I love my life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a nerd, I love working with computers and I build them for people that need them. I love card and bored games, I love to go paint-balling and I loves Jeeps. I love spending time with my friends. I plan on owning my own company one day, something based around computers. I love eating healthy and being in shape. I'm not any good at sports but I love playing them with people anyways because, well its fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born Mormon, however I haven't always known it was true, through many experiences in my life I have come to know that this is the fullness of the gospel, I have seen the gospel bless many people. Its not easy following all the teachings of Christ, but it is one of the most rewarding things you can do. I know that this church is true and that as we follow the commandments and the laws given to us that we by doing so open a window for blessings to flow out of, I have seen this in my own life and in the life of others around me many times. One of the ways I have come to know this church is true is by reading and praying about the Book of Mormon, the book of Mormon is a set of holy scripture revealed to us in this day for are benefit, it contains the words of holy prophets and it testifies of Christ, the Book of Mormon goes hand in hand with the holy bible. By reading the Book of Mormon and praying to know if it is true I have come to know that it contains the fullness of the gospel and that this church has been established by Christ.

How I live my faith

Currently I am serving as a full time missionary for the church in California, around the Santa Rosa area. I spend everyday with anther missionary going around all day everyday trying my best to share the truth of the gospel with people, its not easy but its the best thing that I've ever done. The gospel has blessed me tremendously, I wish I could put in words the gratitude I have for my Father in Heaven for all the things he has done for me and for everything he has given me, living the gospel has changed me completely for the better, and it feels great knowing that I am closer to god than every before and that I am doing his will and his work. After my 2 year mission is over I will still do all I can for my Father in Heaven, I will continue to help bless his children.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

You can come to know that are Father in Heaven is there and that He loves each one of us. By keeping His commandments and by praying to Him with real intent and with full purpose of heart, asking Him if He really is there, He will through the Holy Spirit confirm to us that He really is there.
