Hi I'm Richard

I'm a Mormon. I am a convert, Married, Self employed

About Me

I am currently in a Bishopric...I don't know why except that the Lord called me, which is why most of us are so insecure in our callings. But you know that the Lord is with you because you receive inspiration which is unmistakably from the Lord. You receive His help and you cannot deny it. I am self-employed and through that profession I have learned that by my Dad's old saying "God looks out for fools and self-employed." I know for sure that the Lord guides us and watches over our every move and there is a reason you are reading this at this time.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 22 years old, I had serious health problems at which point I had an out-of-body experience. And because of that I started looking for religion. Through a process of TV evangelists and other religious investigation, nobody could answer my questions about what happened to me. When the missionaries taught me that the spirit world was right here on earth, that answered my questions. No other religion has that doctrine. It still took me four months of praying and fasting to get the answer if I should be baptized. But when I did it, it was for sure and I have never regretted it since.

How I live my faith

To live your faith you have to first know what it actually is. And once you do, and you have that knowledge, then you have to live it and you have to do what it says. Otherwise you are a hypocrite, and I don't like being a hypocrite. So I just try to set a good example for everybody in my neighborhood and try to be friendly to everyone. That's the basics of a good Christ-like life.
