Hi I'm Rich

I grew up in Las Vegas and served a mission in Chile. I love our Savior and his example of service. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father who enjoys spending time with his children and his beautiful wife of more than 25 years. I recently earned my PhD and wrote my dissertation on leadership. I like to take photos of sports and landscape. I am very curious about most things and enjoy hearing different perspectives on just about anything. I still have so much to learn and know.

Why I am a Mormon

I chose this religion because I believe it contains the same truths that existed in the primitive church when Jesus Christ was on the earth. As a youth, most of my friends were members of the church and I found it fairly easy because we shared the same beliefs. As an adult, I have had to stand more on my own and have found that my testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel is true. It isn't always easy but I can't deny the truthfulness of its teachings.

How I live my faith

I have spent most of my life working with the youth in the church. I really enjoy spending time with them because they are all so different and I love to see them learning about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am currently teaching the 14-17 year old youth in Sunday School. It helps me learn about our Savior and the youth challenge me to always live my life better. It is inspiring to see youth stand up for what they believe and at times stand apart. Their example has inspired me to make better choices, serve with more compassion and seek to understand those who might not share my exact views on life.
