Hi I'm Ryan Hansen

I grew up in Idaho and then Utah for just over three years. I'm in Rome,Italy serving a mission. I'm a Mormon

About Me

Hey, I am Ryan Hansen. During high school I excelled at being a musician playing the alto, tenor, and soprano saxophones. I also have limited experience on the clarinet. I played jazz and classical music, as well as sang in my school choir for my last year. I love to run, especially when they are short distances, I am also a fairly good jumper. I love backyard sports with friends and such. I really enjoy exploring and climbing rocks. I like to think that I see a challenge and then I run at it head on hoping to do my best no matter what. I am currently serving a mission in the Rome, Italy mission. After the mission I will be attending BYU Provo and studying engineering. What type? I still haven't quite made up my mind yet, but it'll be great whatever it is.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and grew up in the church. It actually took me a long time to gain a personal and stable testimony of the gospel. I have seen how it has affected my life and learned that being able to understand better the gospel I have grown to know and love, I have found my own testimony through helping others find theirs. I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon and its divine inspiration because it has given me helpful insight to overcome challenges and I know that the prophet has divine inspiration to help everyone who hears his words because he has given me advice without knowing me or ever talking to me. I know that gospel is true because I have seen it in action and have been a witness of great kindness brought by living the gospel. I am a Mormon because I believe that through god's teachings and the gospel we can help others.

How I live my faith

I am teaching the people of Italy right now. My purpose is to at very least help other people to come closer to Christ, to improve their faith, and strengthen them and their families. I do this great work to grow my testimony of everything that I have learned throughout my life and to try to bless others with acts of service and kindess.
