Hi I'm Rich Watson

I'm a member of the USAF who was born and raised in NY. I joined the church in 1996 while serving in the Middle East.

About Me

I am member of the United States Air Force. I have served in the military since 1995 and have loved it. Most importantly I have been married since 2000 and now have four wonderful children. Most of my time is spent trying to improve as a father, husband, and priesthood holder. I also enjoy running, teaching, and watching the NY Yankees!

Why I am a Mormon

This is simple...because the teachings of the Church are true. When I decided to accept this gospel into my life a peace and understanding came over me that I have never experience before. This church has made me a better man and enabled to see the full potential not only in myself, but for my family and all those I come in contact with.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through all aspects of my life. First and foremost is I live my faith by being a husband and father. Of all the roles I hold in life, those two are most pertinent. My goal is that my wife and children will always know who I am and what I stand for. Furthermore, in my day to day work I strive to be upright and honest to all I come in contact with. While working out I listen to uplifting church music or general conference addresses. I have served in various capacities in the church and always try to serve in a way that I feel Heavnely Father would have me do. My true joy within the church comes from teaching youth and being able to converse with them.
