Hi I'm Richard

I'm a Physician happily married with 5 children and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I find great joy working in my occupation , as well as spending time with my wife and family. I do look forward to Sunday- as I get to attend my church service- and serve as a teacher in the Sunday School in my ward. I feel my life is balanced- the constant and varied experiences are so fulfilling. .

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to LDS parents- who taught me the gospel- because I felt their love for me- I was able to rely on their testimony- until I was able to develop my own. At the age of 15, as I was reading the Book of Mormon- where Jesus visited the American Continent after his crucifixion- I was overwhelmed with a feeling of the truthfulness of what I was reading. This feeling is revived each time I participate in my church service, and help others.

How I live my faith

I find balance in my life by trying to spend time each day in reading the scriptures and personal prayer. As I feel my Heavenly Fathers influence in my life- my reassurance that he is aware of me grows. Sunday is a special day in our home- we attend our church service- listen to gospel messages on the available church media, and spend time with our extended family. this truly brings joy into my life.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Richard
It is a blessing that all worth male members of the church are able to hold the Priesthood. As such, there are certain things our father in Heaven have asked- and one of those is that each male prepare to receive a call from the prophet to serve a mission, which I was able to do. I am looking forward now to the time when I will be able to serve more missions with my Wife. Being able to serve at all times of ones life, in whatever capacity one is able, brings a sense of worth, and a reason for being. Show more Show less
