Hi I'm Rick
I have lived many lives in my 59 yrs here on this earth, many yrs not so good, ( because of my choices) & very many good yrs (again because of my choices). My father was in the Army for my 1st 18yrs of life, it was very interesting to say the least.
Why I am a Mormon
Because of my earlier yrs, & even now some times, I've often thought of why are we here on this earth & is there really some thing else besides this life. After much trouble & sinking to a low point in my life, I was compelled to pray for some kind of help. I was not sure if any one was out there to hear me, but I poured out my heart. Soon after I felt a feeling in my chest, that what I had done was right. So I kept praying, off & on for the next 6 months or so. Then was asked to go to church, again I felt this warm feeling in my heart. I studied went to church meetings & again prayed often. My heart became full, a peace came over me like I had not felt for many yrs. This is what I needed to do, so I could be closer to God & Jesus. Now many yrs have passed, but nothing has changed. When I do, or live my life as I should I continue to receive the Love & Peace & Blessings God has for me. When I don't live as I should, I feel that Love sliding away. It's not really moving away from me, it's me moving away from God. I hope & pray that if you need help, as I have needed, & still need, that you will humble yourself to your knees & ask. You will feel his Love, the closer you put yourself to him. Here is part of my testimony God, Jesus & the Holy Ghost are real, there is a plan for us all, I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.
How I live my faith
In past yrs I have taught Sunday school classes, also scout master, I've been a home teacher, & have worked in one of our Temples. These jobs have helped me to be the best example to others that I can be. I have just moved, & look forward to new callings.
