Hi I'm Rick McElroy

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

About Me

Currently, I operate a successful remodeling business. I am an author, writer, former university professor of early childhood education, and Pop-pop (grandfather). I am a High Priest, Temple recommend holder, happily married to my eternal companion, and attend church each Sunday. I love the Savior and the Gospel. Life has been greatly rewarding, even through much adversity, because of the Church. I am so lucky to be loved by a forgiving and nurturing Heavenly Father. I know the Savior, Jesus Christ, lives. I know Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God. the Book of Mormon is the word of God.

Why I am a Mormon

I have the honor and privelege of ministering unto my family and others using the Priesthood. The Church changed my life for the better. I have grown closer to Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ through works, and by the Holy Ghost. It is true. I am proud to be a "Mormon" member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It is a gift. I cherish my relationships and dedicate my life to service of God and the Savior, our Master. The Church made me a better man, father, husband and person.

How I live my faith

I am the Branch Mission Leader . It is the greatest calling of all. I get to be a part of the Lord's army and bring to pass love, change and opportunity for people to move forward in their lives. It is humbling and I enjoy it immensely. I also am a faithful Home Teacher and visit my three families every month with a spiritual message. I love them. Missionary work is so exciting. Seeing a great change of heart and circumstances in investigators and new members are really humbling for me. God lives and Jesus Christ is the head of this work.
