Hi I'm Rick

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Marine Veteran and father of six (three looking down on me from above).

Why I am a Mormon

Why not? It just makes sense to me. All of our beliefs of the pre-existence explain so many things now. And if the pre-existence happened, then the plan of salvation is real, then eternal life is possible. It brings comfort and strength to me to know that I have a purpose here on Earth. All of these trials are not only to test, but to strengthen myself and others. We missed out on meeting two of our children during subsequent pregnancies and recently relinquished our hold on our 13 year old daughter who suffered from Leukemia. Throughout all of it, she knew that her strength and her faith in the plan of salvation was to teach others how to go through their own trials. The comfort we took knowing that she returned to our Heavenly Father with honor. That we will be able to see her again and know that we are sealed for time and all eternity makes a very difficult time much easier to handle.

How I live my faith

I am the second counselor in the Young Men's Group. I assist with helping them to reach their greatest potential through scouting and cementing their foundations for the onslaught of negative stimuli that plagues this trying time in a youth's life.
