Hi I'm Riley

I'm a Mormon

About Me

My wife and I live in a small, rural town in Idaho. The town basically depends upon agriculture for survival and I work at a bank that specializes in making loans to farmers. I work directly with farmers in fulfilling their credit needs to run their businesses. I went to college in Utah and received two Bachelors degrees. I received a degree in Mathematics and Economics. Evidently I really enjoy number. This tends to suit me well in my current job working as a banker. I grew up on a farm in the ares in which I now live. I spent most of the days of my life working with my father on the family farm. These are interactions that I now cherish and wish I could go back and enjoy them all over again. M wife and I have a beautiful daughter who just turned two and one child on the way.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the doctrines of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to be true and correct. The reason is that simple for me. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ in the sacred grove and that subsequently the doctrines of God's kingdom were restored to the Prophet Joseph Smith. Along with that restoration came about the Book of Mormon, which Joseph Smith translated by the power of God. I simply know these things to be true and as well all the doctrines of the gospel of Jesus Christ as taught by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know these things to be true because I have simply asked God to know of the truthfulness of these things for myself. I know of their truthfulness independent of any other individuals thoughts and feelings towards the same principles.

How I live my faith

I live my faith one day at a time. Trying to improve each day and trying to understand more fully each day the doctrines of Christ's gospel. This understanding propels me to try and improve each day.
