Hi I'm J. Rib

I am from California. Running is legit, ASL has changed my life and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from California . I could do the same thing every single day and be totally happy, as long as it involved going running and playing basketball. I played a year in college, followed by a knee surgery that totally changed my life. I am a history major, I want to be a high school teacher, I love frozen burritos. I served a mission for the Church, I somehow ended up speaking three languages,Music has to be on all the time, I love people and life is so good.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because when my friend got baptized, as i sat in the service I knew, without a doubt, that the Church was true. I had been to many church events, I had read the BOM twice, but in that moment, i knew it was true, and I would do whatever it took to get baptized. I knew it was worth it. So thats how it started, now 5 years out I can I stay Mormon because I know its the Church of Jesus Christ, because the Gospel gives me happiness and direction and plays a huge role in the life I have today. And today, I have a dang good life.

How I live my faith

Living in the Church is such an incredible blessing. Participating in a church ward, or congregation gives incredible opportunities to serve and be uplifted. The ward is like one giant family. The saying "it takes a village" fits great into the church. My family are not members of the church, and truley my ward has become my family in Christ.
