Hi I'm Richard
I am a father of 7; a Capella University Dual Master's seeking student; a brother of 7 brothers, 1 sister, and two half-brothers. I am a suvivior of three sibbling suicides, and I've out lived my parents and all 8 grand parents. I hunt but I'm not very good. I am a dog lover, and a community parenting parent supporter. I am the Fiance to a mother of 4, and we plan to have 3 more before adopting. I've been a convert since 15yrs old, but only really recently gave my life to Heavenly Father. I am humbled, I seek humility, and aware that I have so much further to go, but I am not letting go of the iron rod. I am loved, I love, and I have more love to give. I am Mormon! I am getting married on January 2, 2012 at noon (12/12 @ 12)
Why I am a Mormon
I am Mormon because I know this is the one and only true church. Being Mormon opened up my eyes to the ability to be sealed to my mother and father and brothers and family one day. It is my belief that without my Heavenly Father looking out over me I would be lost like that of my brothers and sister. It is through Jesus Christ's sacrifice that I am able to live today. He died for my sins so that I can be saved and return to him one day, and have my eternal family return to me one day.
Please explain the part prayer plays in your life?
My life is not complete without the power of prayer. I know that everything is provided to us when we have faith in our prayer.
How I live my faith
Currently, I live my faith by explaining away the myths of the LDS church. I do my best to explain why I am Mormon, and I am not afraid to talk about my religion. I teach my children via reading the Bible, and Book of Mormon. Furthermore, I demonstrate my love for every one by helping when and where I am able to help. How can I help you learn of the Mormon Faith?
