Hi I'm Richard

I am a Vice President of a Financial Institution. I have a wife, two kids, and a dog. I'm a baseball fan, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

During my high school years I played football and baseball. I have found a lot of joy and fullfillment in sports. Now, I enjoy spending time with my son and daughter as they fullfill their dreams. I am an avid golfer, although the ball doesn't always respond how I would like! I graduted from college with a degree in accounting. My profession has been rewarding and fulfilling. My greatest joys come in watching my children discover the world around them.

Why I am a Mormon

My family has been Mormon for many generations. Some of them came to the Salt Lake Valley with Brigham Young. I am a Mormon because I have chosen for myself to follow the teaching of Jesus Christ. I have had to learn for myself that God is the Father of us all and that he loves us. I have been able to find peace, joy, and hope through the teachings found in both the Bible and the Book of Mormon. Being a Mormon has enabled me to find a purpose in life and give meaning to the experiences I have had.

How I live my faith

When Jesus Christ was on the earth he said, "Come follow me." Each day I try to do as Jesus would do. I try to treat people in a way that will bring them closer to God. I find that by reading the scriptures and applying thier teachings in my life I am better able to face the challenges that I encounter on a regular basis.

Are Mormons Christians?

Richard
To me a Christian is someone who accepts Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. I have done that in my own life. I also recognize that the teachings found in the Bible help me to become the type of person that Christ would have me to become. A Christian is one who is always seeking to do what Jesus would have them do. Through the teachings found in the Book of Mormon, I have been able to add more understanding to what Christ would have me do. Yes, Mormon's are Christians because we strive daily to live according to the teachings found in the Bible and reiterated in the Book of Mormon. Show more Show less
