Hi I'm Rich

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a devoted husband to my lovely wife and father to my fun children. My wife and kids bring me an incredible amount of joy in this life. I enjoy spending all of my time with them and look forward to the amazing experiences I will enjoy with them. We love to travel together, especially to tropical destinations. I am an entrepreneur and own various businesses which allow me to work on my own schedule. I enjoy helping others succeed and reach the goals they set for themselves. I enjoy sports, both watching and playing. I love flying although I'm no longer a pilot. I also like engaging in most water activities, especially jet skiing and knee boarding.

Why I am a Mormon

Why not? The promise of eternal life with God and my family is reward enough, although I don't need to take someone else's word for it--I've found out for myself that it's possible. Then there's the happiness that I get to enjoy in this world by living its teachings. I love the warnings the Lord has given us to avoid alcohol, tobacco, coffee, and other items that create an addition or may be harmful. This has given me more freedom in my life as I'm in more control of my body and not a slave to the ingredients that have the power to consume people. I really enjoy the instruction I receive at church on how I can be a better husband, father, brother, and son. One of the greatest rewards on this earth is being worthy to enter the temple of the Lord and there being able to feel the presence of God and receive further instruction as to the purpose of this life while I am able to make sacred covenants with Him. Being sealed to my wife for eternity and having our children sealed to us is the greatest covenant that we've been able to make with Him.

How I live my faith

I strive to live my life to live the commandments of the Lord every day and be an example of Jesus Christ in all I do and say in every environment I'm in. I have a great opportunity to learn from the faithful leaders that God has chosen for His church in this day and help Him build His church by sharing my talents with them. I spent two years of my life spreading the gospel in Alabama. While I was able to share with others that which I found to be true, I feel as if I was the beneficiary to so many blessings during that time that I'm still in debt to my Heavenly Father and will be forever. He has blessed me so much in my life and continues to do so everyday. I love Him and His church that He has established in this day for all that it gives me.
