Hi I'm Spencer Richards

I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love wakeboarding, dirtbiking, skiing, playing soccer, swimming, off-roading and being at the lake! If it is outdoors, i love it! I also love listening to music!! I love to watch movies! I love hanging out with my friends and havin fun! I love my family! They mean so much to me! I don't know what I would do without them!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a mormon my whole life. Although my parents were mormon, they never forced me to be one. I am a mormon because I chose to be! This decision has been the best one I have ever made! Being a member of the Church has blessed my life in so many ways! I have my own testimony that this is the only true church on this earth and that it is Jesus Christ's church here on the earth! It contains the fulness of the gospel- 100% of the truth. Not just bits and pieces. WE HAVE IT ALL!! I know that we have a living prophet, Pres. Thomas S. Monson, who leads and guides this church according to the revelation he recieves from God. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that through him, Jesus Christ restored his church on the earth once more in the 1800's! I know that the Book of Mormon is a true book and that it truly does testify of Jesus Christ and that it goes hand-in-hand with the bible! I know that Jesus Christ atoned for our sins and that when we have faith in him and do all he wants us to we can be forgiven of our sins and be able to live with Him, our Father in Heaven, and our families after our time on earth! I am so grateful for this knowlege! Without it, my life would be very unhappy and I would be very lost. I know that families can be together for ever! That brings such comfort to me!! My family is everything to me and if I couldn't be with them and remember them forever, I would be devestated!

How I live my faith

I am serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! I am serving in the West Virginia Charleston Mission! I know this is what Heavenly Father wants me doing right now! I am so grateful for this oppurtunity to go out and teach people about what Heavenly Father wants for them! I want everyone else to have the peace, joy, love and happiness that the restored gospel brings!
