Hi I'm Rylee

I am from Oregon. I am preparing to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am Mormon.

About Me

I love being outside and enjoying nature such as hunting, fishing, hiking. I love hanging out with my friends and just talking. I also enjoy playing the piano, painting and photography. I love playing sports for fun especially soccer, volleyball, basketball and swimming. I love animals and so I am going to become a game warden. I have been going to college the past year and am now getting ready to serve a mission for my church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because our Loving Heavenly Father is real and he answers my prayers and I can feel his love for me. During high school I was struggling with depression and felt like I was alone. I decided to actually kneel down and pray out loud and I asked him if he was really there. I was enveloped instantly in what felt as is he was hugging me and I just felt his love for me. He is there for you when you need him and he will comfort you in times of need. I know I am not alone. I know that I am able to return to my loving Heavenly Father through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I know that I can repent for my transgression and that I can be clean again. I know that Thomas S. Monson is the Prophet of God. I am grateful for the worthy priesthood members so that I am able to receive priesthood blessings for when I am need of help or healing power from God. I am also grateful for the temples and the ordinances that we can receive in them especially being sealed to my family for all time and eternity. This church is the true church and it has been restored through Joseph Smith from revelation that was given to him by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I often help out with service projects that my church puts on. I have helped with my church's youth group and putting on activities and dances. I have been a part of leadership for the girls in my church since I was 12 till I was 18. I am now preparing to serve my mission.
