Hi I'm Richard

I am a father of 6, a husband to my best friend, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I joined the church when I was 19 after a very spiritual experience. I served a mission in Santiago Chile. I was sealed to my wife in the Salt Lake Temple. I am currently enroled at the University of Phoenix in the Business Management program. After 10 years of running a very succesful construction company as the CEO, I am starting over and getting the degree to back up the real world experence.

Why I am a Mormon

I was on my way to work on my 19th birthday. I lost control of my car and struck a pole. I watched the pole enter the car, come straight at me, and it was if I blinked and I was standing in the street and looking at my car which was destryed. I heard a voice very powerfully say, "It is not your time to die, but come to me!". This repeated over and over as an echo that got softer and softer. I was scared and confused. When I got home I opened the phone book and called the Mesa Temple, got my local meeting house information, I was at church that Sunday. I knew as soon as I entered the building that I belonged there.

How I live my faith

With three boys of my own it is great to be apart of our church sponsered Boy Scout program. To see the boys grow into young men is a miracle. The friendships the boys create with each other, and us leaders, no doubt help them make better choices.
