Hi I'm Rick

My home is Nauvoo. I am a jazz saxophone artist. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Montana. I am currently serving a two year mission in the Utah Salt Lake City South mission. I am a jazz saxophone player and have performed many times around the state of Illinois. Music is my life.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason that I'm a mormon is because when I was growing up, I really didn't feel the great love that my Heavenly Father had for me. I was following down the wrong path. I was missing the knowledge of the love and great plan that I had on this earth and the great purpose I had. I thought that I would never find the love that I feel now. But then, God sent me the help that I needed. I found that great love in someone that I met and grew to be very close to. So I followed. I could feel the change in my life. I could feel the love that I had. The reason that I'm a Mormon is because I felt the great love of God and His great plan for us. I know what we need to do in this life now and I know the feeling of not having this knowledge. I know that this is the true church of our Savior, Jesus Christ. I have felt His love and care and I will always try to share this feeling of peace with the whole world, so that everyone else will know of His love for us.

How I live my faith

Right now, I am serving the Lord by being a missionary for the church of Jesus Christ and trying to give people the knowledge of the true church of Jesus Christ. I used to help in my home town by talking to people and helping people set up for activities and meetings in the church. I try my best to go around and help people everyday.

What do Mormons believe about family?

We know that family is a very important part of Gods plan for us. Being sent to this earth gave us the chance to have our very family. We know that the home is a very important and sacred place for us. Through families, we can strengthen our love and learn how to love more. We can also learn more through our trials and sucessess in a family. This helps us prepare ourselves to return with God and to have our own family after this life. That is another thing that we know. We know that families can live together forever after this short life. Show more Show less
