Hi I'm Rick

I grew up in South Carolina. I'm a student, finishing my education. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love watching college football, and baseball. I love to collect comic books. I love spending time with my wife. I love going to movies with her, and just being lazy at home. I love spending time with my family. I am going to college right now. I am working on getting my bachelors degree in History. I would like to teach History to college students someday.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon because it feels right. I belong to the true church of Jesus Christ. Being Mormon has always felt right to me. I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I want to serve and please them. I know that Joseph Smith was and is a true prophet of God. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. The doctrines taught in that great book are true also. It can and will change lives. I know that the Atonement of Jesus Christ is real. I know He lives and loves me. I know He is involved in the very details of my life, and that He wants me to be happy. I know He is always there for me with out stretched hands waiting for me to come to Him. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet. I know that he is the prophet that God has leading and guiding His church today. The doctrines taught in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints are true.

How I live my faith

I try my hardest to be the same person throughout the week, that I am on Sunday. I have taught Sunday School classes in my congregation. We have 45 minute discussions every Sunday. We discuss the scriptures, and how we can better our lives. I have been assigned to see people that are part of our congregation every month, to check on them, and see how they are doing. It is a rewarding experience to serve other people.

What do Mormons believe about "eternal life?"

The possibility of being able to return to live with God and Jesus Christ is so exciting for me. Being with my family forever also excites me. That is why I try my best everyday to live in a way that pleasing to God. I love Him and want so much to live with Him again. I'm excited that as long as I do everything I can, and do my best that I can return to live with Him. Show more Show less
