Hi I'm Rodric Johnson
I am a father, I am a Writer, I am a dreamer and I am a Mormon.
I love to write. I have self-published a couple book and look to do more soon. Writing is a way of living a life different from what I currently have. I wonder about being the man on the street or the lady in the window, so I become those people and live the life. It helps me to appreciate what I have now and strive to improve. I enjoy spending time with my wife and kids. I like to look at my wife while she is interacting with the kids. Sometimes it amazes me how lucky I am to have a wife as great as mine! She is a loving kind lady that accepts me for me and for what I can become, which is very important for me. My kids are kids and behave like kids and I would have it no other way. I love them and the cute things they do. I savor the taste of Pecan Chicken Crunch Salads from Applebee's. I also love the pecan pie, which will be the death of me! Raisin Brand is my favorite cereal. If you didn't know already, chicken is my favorite meat, serve it how you will! I enjoy a good movie, especially action. I absolutely love Jackie Chan! Glorified violence may be wrong, but I am in love with the art of it on film. Will Smith is one of my favorite actors. I graduated with a bachelor in Psychology and a Master in education degrees. I love learning! I hiked Table Mountain in Cape Town and survived! I actually completed P90X. I need to start it again.
Why I am a Mormon
I found Christ as a young man, 15 to be exact. I discovered a copy of the Book of Mormon in my High school library and was converted to Christ by reading it's words. I was introduced to the Gospel by missionaries. I know that Christ lives based on the words I read from the Book of Mormon. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's authorized church because I asked God after I found out if he was real. My life has been a series of blessing ever since I have found that Christ has a church on the Earth that he directly leads. I like knowing that I have access to God in prayer and through His own prophets here on Earth.
How I live my faith
I have had many roles in the church, missionary being one of them. I have taught the Sunday School class for adults called Gospel doctrine. I have been a secretary to a Bishop. I have worked with the young men at the stake/diocese level and currently serve as a ward choir director. I seek to befriend as many as will let me and treat all as Christ would. I want the things I do in secret to stay that way so that I do not allow pride to enter in gloating.
