Hi I'm Rick

I grew up in Texas, USA on a Dairy Farm. I was involved in sports in high school and college. I joined the church in 1977.

About Me

I rrecently retired from government work. I am married and .have two boys who are married and one grandson. I joined the church in 1977 and served a mission in Seattle, Washington. I enjoy outdoor activityes. I like meeting new people.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1977. I have a strong belief in our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and The Holy Ghost. Prior to joining the church, I had always wondered if God spoke to his people anciently through a prophet and why he would not do so today. In investigating the church, I learned there is a prophet on the earth today.

How I live my faith

My family would say I have never met a stranger. They know I enjoy visiting with people and making new friends. I have worked in Scouts for nearly 15 years and am currently teaching Sunday School. In addition, I love going on service projects because I firmly believe that when you are in the service of your fellow man you are in the service of God.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Prayer is one of the greatest gifts we have received. Through prayer, we are able to receive answers regarding our own personal issues. Show more Show less
