Hi I'm Riley

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Riley and I like to party. Im from Washington state. i play the guitar and love to make music. I am currently serving a two-year mission in Nashville Tennessee.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church. All my life i have learned and heard the gospel. I had gone through times, like a lot of people, where i was more active and interested in the church then other times, but i never strayed too far. I had been blessed to be in an area where i had good friends who were solid in their faith and always supported me and loved me. I was often times afraid of where my life would go and what would happen, but when those rough times hit i didn't stop going to church, saying my prayers, and reading the scriptures. The fundamentals that i was taught ever since i was young had stuck with me. every time i felt down, i wouldn't want to do those fundamentals but i did anyway because i knew they was right. i found out for myself that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was the true church through living the Gospel and asking God to help me know. I have always seen the good and the happiness that comes from living the Gospel and am so grateful for the joy it has brought in my life "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." (2 Timothy 1:7) and now im serving a two-year mission in Nashville Tennessee :)

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the best i can to apply the knowledge i have into my daily life. I am currently serving a two-year volenteer mission in Nashville Tennessee. I am volenteering two years of my life to share the gosple and to bring the joy that its brought to my life to the lifes of others. Its a great opportunity to serve.

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Riley
The official name of the Church is 'The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints'. It is Jesus Christ's Church in the latter-days (meaning the last days) and its members are called Saints. It has recieved its nickname as "The Mormon Church" because we believe that the Book of Mormon is holy scripture. The Book of Mormon goes hand in hand with the Bible and is a second witness of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Riley
The Mormon lifesyle is awesome. The lifestyle we live is based on the knowledge we have about Heavenly Father's plan of happiness for His children. Mormons are very family oriented because the family is an essential part of God's plan for us. We try to live our lives like the Savior lived his, and follow his example. The Mormon lifestyle is very rewarding physically, spiritually, and mentally. It helps us recieve the joy and blessings that God has in store for us. Show more Show less
