Hi I'm Wesley Ryan Olson

I grew up in Gilbert, AZ in the United States. I am very engaged in my community and country. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am preparing to serve my mission for 2 years and be a representative of Jesus Christ in a foreign country. I love to read, play soccer and lacrosse, and hang out with my friends. I love to engage in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and serve others.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church and was surrounded all my life by good influences and active members in the church that instilled in me a love for our Savior, the Atonement and helping others come unto Christ. I have felt the joy in my life by following Jesus and that is why I am preparing to serve a mission. To help others feel that same joy that comes from dedicating our lives to helping others and becoming more like our older brother, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by participating in teaching, being an example, and showing love to those in my ward and community. I love all of my callings and the opportunity to serve that comes with it.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Wesley Ryan Olson
The atonement of Christ was necessary to allow every person that has, and will ever be born to be able to repent and feel of our Saviors love. Any time I make a mistake, I can turn my life unto Christ and find a change of heart to be able to change myself for the better. Christ knows everything I will ever go through in my life and that gives me great hope and joy knowing that I can always turn to Christ. Show more Show less
