Hi I'm Rick
I grew up in the Northwest around Seattle, have traveled around the world with the Air Force, and I'm a Mormon!
I recently converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in 2008. I'm a professional firefighter and life-long Boy Scout. I am married to Missy, another convert from 1991. We have four children and four grandchildren.
Why I am a Mormon
I have always been a Christian...baptised as a Methodist when I was 12. I had experienced many religions throughout my life, but something was always missing. I had tried to live my life by the 10 commandments and always follow the golden rule. Prior to meeting Missy, I had studied with the Jehovah's Witnesses, but could not completely get behind some of their teachings. There was always too much philosophies of man mixed into their programs...that I just didn't feel any of the churches were right. I watched the fall conference via a TV broadcast, approached the Missionaries with questions and I knew that this church was true.
How I live my faith
I have served in several leadership callings within the church assisting other members with family history research and with what ever service projects are needed. I support the Boy Scouts programs at the District and Council levels.
