Hi I'm Rhett
Sometimes we feel like a raging flame embodied by an Ocean, every choice inflicted with judgement, I'm a mormon
I came from a family of 4 sisters and 1 brother. I am 5th in that line. I grew up being outdoors most of my life. Backpacking, hiking, camping, fishing, rock climbing, canyoneering, etc. I love the Mountains. They are sort of my place to find solace and peace. A place to re-charge. I also love the freedom sky-diving. What a wonderful feeling. I love a good rope swing, or a bridge, or even a rock wall that I can jump off into a deep enough pocket of water. I just enjoy pushing past the physical limitations of my fear. I love playing all sports summer, winter, or water. No difference so long as I am having fun. Enjoy watching a baseball game at the local college with my buddies and rooting for the team. I am an Eagle Scout. Learned a lot from that program that prepared me for future events in life that have and will occur. I have hiked, rock climbed, camped, canyoneered, etc. in every state north and south of Colorado heading west, minus New Mexico as well as a few other countries. I have completed the West Coast Trail with my family, and I have hiked 26, of the 52, 14,000+ft mountains located in Colorado, backpacked through rain forests, biked around the San Juan islands, trekked through the Paria Canyon. Nature is one of God's creations that I just can't ignore. I love it!
Why I am a Mormon
Why am I Mormon? That took me time to understand and know for myself. However, I came to a surety that it was correct. In my attempts to know, I questioned things. Even myself. What allowed me to receive my answer that this gospel contained the fullness, was when I read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it. Asking if it be right. I came to the realization, that I had always known, but that I had simply needed to really ask for myself to confim it by the answer I recieved. In my life that the Lord has proven his presence and his role in my eternal happiness. There were even times where I had close calls with serious injury, or death. I have no doubt that after a 65 ft freefall of a rock face and not only surviving, but to only have a shattered ankle with a bruised pelvis and back, a miracle from God. He has kept me alive for a purpose. As I continue to attend church, read my scriptures, and study, I begin to understand the gospel of Jesus Christ more clearly and my purpose here on Earth. It took time and effort in my progression. My motivation comes from God and my change of perception to a new understanding. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and is aware of my needs, that he will provide for my needs as long as I am obedient and doing my best. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, and that it contains truth and power. Power that can calm your soul and heal your heart. Take stress from your day and bring happiness to your life. This gospel means the everything to me.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by studying, pondering, and applying the doctrine in my everyday life. I teach all those who are willing and wanting to know. English and spanish speaking. I work hard to help provide an environment for the spirit to dwell where others can feel and recognize the love that Christ has for them.
