Hi I'm Ryan

I was born and raised in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. I love singing and I'm studying business in college. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a family with three brothers and no sisters. Family is the most important thing in my life. Currently, I am studying business management at Brigham Young University. I want to have the business acumen to be able to provide well for my own future family and have some left over to help others. I just got engaged to the love of my life! I am so happy that I know her. She is so supportive and loving. I look forward to being married to her forever. When we are married in the temple, our marriage will last beyond this life. In heaven I will still be her husband, and she will still be my wife. Our children will still know us as their parents in life. I am grateful for this blessing.

Why I am a Mormon

There are so many reasons why I choose to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. First of all, it's just a happy way to live! The lifestyle of a Mormon is all about enjoying life and working to help others do the same. When I talk about enjoying life I don't mean doing every crazy thing that a person can do. I mean focusing on doing things that give a person peace and self-confidence. Of course life can still be tough sometimes, but there are a lot of physical and emotional issues that I don't have to worry about because I choose to live a clean life. More than anything else, I am a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is truly the original church that Jesus Christ organized in His day, restored in our time by a living prophet. I know that miracles never cease and that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. I don't just think it. I know it. I know because the Lord has communicated it to me personally through the Holy Ghost.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by just doing the best I can! I try to be as kind and helpful to others as I know how to be. When I notice that someone needs help emotionally, financially, or spiritually, I do what I can to be there for that person. I especially love talking to people who are interested in learning more about the Jesus Christ. I also take time to pray and study the Bible and Book of Mormon so I can find ways to improve myself.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

I know my parents, siblings, wife, children, and all my other family members can live eternally together in God's presence. God will force none of us to enter His presence if we do not desire it,, but all who do desire to be with Him and their families will have that opportunity. Show more Show less
