Hi I'm Richard

I am a very happily married father of four, a family doctor, a physician executive, and a musical theater actor. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a busy physician executive, but my family takes first priority in my life. My wonderful wife Emily helps me guide our children in the Savior’s footsteps. We have a married son finishing college, another son serving a two-year mission for the Church, a daughter in high school, and a son in middle school.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a religious home. My parents were excellent examples of following the Lord Jesus Christ. I have had literally thousands of manifestations from the Holy Ghost that have helped me to know that Heavenly Father loves us, that Jesus died for our sins, that Joseph Smith was called to restore the Lord’s Church to the earth, that Thomas S. Monson is the Lord’s prophet today, and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God as is the Bible.

How I live my faith

I am careful to pray and study the scriptures every day. I spend time with my family every day. I attend Church services with my family every Sunday, and I work with the young men on Scouting activities during the week. I have tried to serve others in many ways throughout my life. I served a two-year mission in Guatemala as a young man. I helped lead a Church congregation in Las Vegas, and there were many Hispanic members who didn’t speak English. We held meetings in Spanish for them. The opportunity to minister to the members of the congregation was a great blessing for me and my family. I previously served on the Board of Directors for an organization which plans sporting events for handicapped youth and adults, and I currently serve on the Board of Directors for a community theater group. I enjoy performing in musical theater productions with my daughter. I try to be open and candid, but not overbearing, about my faith. I hope that others will see my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ through the way I live every day.
