Hi I'm Richard.

I'm a Mormon. I am a Father. I am a Family Physician.

About Me

I enjoy travel and history. I like reading good books. I have a large family with six children.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the Church and have always loved it. I have gained my own testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel. In High School I read the Book of Mormon for the first time. This experience, which took all of 3 days, is where the foundation of my testimony began. Before that I enjoyed being a member of the Church and felt it was true but mostly relied on what others had taught me. Since that time, scripture study and prayer has kept my testimony strong. I believe in God the Father and in his Son Jesus Christ. I believe that God has given us a great covenant in which if we do his will we will be blessed. I am grateful for the grace the Lord provides us when we sin. I believe that we have prophets today and that the Church is led by a prophet to receive revelation from the Lord.

How I live my faith

I strive to do that which the prophets old and modern have taught. I strive to follow the example of Christ and his commandments.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Richard.
We come to know our Father in Heaven by learning about him and then doing his will. We come to know Him as a child does his Father here on earth. If we do his will we will come to know or become more like him. Show more Show less
