Hi I'm Rick

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy being detailed oriented, organized and clean. That is probably why I enjoy being an accountant. No, I’m not a boring accountant but to get away from my full-time desk job, I enjoy the outdoors of Colorado. I do multiple activities between the four seasons of Colorado; hike, mountain bike, camp, motorcycle rides, ski-doo, wakeboard, paintball, snowboard, and snowshoe. Many who know me also know my hobby, Legos. It's my perfect hobby trying to organize thousands of pieces and being detailed in every way when displaying them in creative ways.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, LDS, is an organized and ordered church directed in the hands of God. Christ has chosen and placed worthy men of good standing to be Prophets and Apostles to lead his church under his direction. Another reason is that any member of the church is always supported by another member in many ways through families members, home teachers, visiting teachers, bishops and of course friendly relationships that are built when meeting another Mormon. Last but not least, young men and women in the church don't just stop going to church with their families after they leave home but have the opportunity to go to church meetings on Sundays wherever they attend college. By attending these Sunday meetings, they can meet others who are single but of their same faith. These young men and women can still stay strong in the faith and rear future families to live righteously. Fortunately, I have the privilege to serve these fine young men in the church today.

How I live my faith

Teaching the young men in the church allows me to learn more of how I can better live the gospel of Jesus Christ to be a better example for them. Helping the young men understand their potential to be a better friend, brother, son, husband and father now and in the future will prepare them to always be where they are needed. If these young men can be stronger and more righteous men now and in the future, how much stronger will the church and our society be. Apart from my volunteered service to the young men I also do home teaching which is visiting families in the church on a monthly basis. These families can always count on me to help them in any way when needed. Also, the chance to visit them on a monthly basis to teach principles of the gospel help strengthen the family unity. It is more than a blessing to be in the service of your fellow men. Letting God know you're there for Him to do his work helps strengthen me and that I can always rely on him when I am in desperate need for his help.
