Hi I'm Riley

I'm a proud father of 4, I'm a entrepreneur, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a welder, I work with my father in our family business. My father has been in business for 33 years. I enjoy working with my hands and creating. I have a beautiful wife and four wonderful children. everyday I am reminded of where they came from, because of there innocence they teach me daily to enjoy life and laugh a lot. As a family we enjoy riding our bikes, hiking and playing on the water especially at Lake Powell.

Why I am a Mormon

My family has a noble heritage of being members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As I grew up My parents were always telling me stories of our family history. I enjoyed the stories, but, I did not fully understand the importance of being a Mormon until I went to serve a 2 year mission in Scotland. There I understand so many more teachings that I had been raised with. I was all alone in a different country, without my family and friends around. And it was me putting what I had been taught all my life to the test. I then understood what it felt like to be loved by a Heavenly Father. I wanted to share that message with everyone that I met. I knew that the Book Of Mormon was true, And I knew that Heavenly Father had a desire for all his children to hear the message he was sending me to preach. Even though I had been raised in the church. I had to find out if the church was true. I had to find out if I was going to live my life following God or choose a different path. We all have struggles in this life. But, I know that it makes it easier to endure if we have the knowledge of a Savior and a loving Heavenly Father to help guide our lives.

How I live my faith

I think a way that I live my faith would be to continue to be myself through being a member of the church. Maybe you have met a member of the church or maybe you have not. I try to let people I come in contact with know that I am a Mormon without saying a word. I feel that people notice you if you are different and that can go either way. I work around a lot of construction sites. (It's not some place you would offer to take your grandmother to most of the time.) I try to watch my language, and control my thoughts. that way when I go home at night I can feel worthy to be with my family. I am an Eagle Scout and have worked with our local Boy Scout troop to help the Boys achieve their Eagle Scout award. I really enjoy helping them with their projects.
