Hi I'm Rick Dupin

I have been a member all my life. I live in Lynnville, TN with my wife and two of my seven children.

About Me

I am currently on online student at BYU-I, and looking to get my Bachelors in Business Management. I love the outdoors and wildlife. I hope to serve a mission with my wife when all our children are out of the house. I love to read and spend time with my wife and children. I have learned so much in my second marriage, and regret the pain I have caused my children.

Why I am a Mormon

I have seen the blessings of the Lord poured out in great abundance in my life. I know the Savior lives and that He suffered and died for my sins, so that I could have a chance to repent and be forgiven. I know that there are living prophets on the earth today and that they lead this church according to the desires of the Lord. I know that families can be together forever! I cannot imagine living with my family throughout this life, only to find that they were not mine for al time. The family is central to the Lord's plan of happiness and this is a major reason why I am a Mormon!!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying everyday to be more like my Savior, to help and teach those around me. I have found that I learn much about how to live my life from my wife and children and other wonderful people around me, both those inside and outside the church. I love to serve the Lord and look forward to the opportunities to work in my community to help others and hopefully bless their lives.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Rick Dupin
To know if Mormonism is true. You need to diligently read the Book of Mormon and then pray to God in the name of Jesus Christ and ask if these words are true. The Lord will answer you if you truly seek His guidance. Show more Show less
