Hi I'm Rhett

I love saying "y'all". I love helping others change their lives. I enjoy hunting. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a family of 6, and love them so much. I am from an itty bitty town outside of Ogden, Utah. Currently I am serving a full-time mission in the Texas-Fort Worth mission, and am loving every minute of it of course! I have been out "just over a year" and am trying to share as much as I can, and strive not to miss a beat. I love the missionaries I serve with, and those who we teach! My "normal" life always included working with my dad welding, tinkering, or whatever was needed. Hunting, paintballing, camping, and river rafting are among my favorite things to do. During the summer, you can usually find me doing at least one of them.

Why I am a Mormon

 Like you will find in many others' thoughts, being born into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints did not make me a Mormon. Having grown up learning the stories, reading scriptures, or going to church didn't make me a Mormon. Like so many millions of members around the world, my conversion is still taking place. The first step, believe-it-or-not, was reading the Book of Mormon. And not like I'd read it before, but I sincerely desired and prayed. Studying with real intent to act on the answers or feelings I had played probably the biggest role. Finally, faithfully combining all of these together, I began my path to eternal life with our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

 Studying and acting as a servant of Jesus Christ is more than just studying just to study, or acting just to act. This opportunity I have as a missionary to devote my time and attention to His work is not one to waste away day dreaming or messin' around! I read of ancient missionaries like Paul of the New Testament, Ammon of the Book of Mormon, and can't help but feel inspired. As I've read about these individuals who actually led lives thousands of years ago, I've taken note of the way the apply the entire gospel of Jesus Christ, and more importantly, the Atonement of Jesus Christ to their teaching. They are lovingly bold, and know where they stand. They know what they believe in, and give up anything necessary to be a tool in God's hands to bring repentance to as many as they can. I try to emulate their zeal and attribute, because they truly are the Christ-like attribute we all strive to achieve. I live my faith by walking the walk. Of course, I'm not always perfect, but I strive to know why and how I can be forgiven. Following Christ in every aspect is not easy in this life, but it is worth it, I so testify.
