Hi I'm Riley

I grew up in Arizona. Life's GREAT. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well here is what I am all about! I love life, and the experiences and opportunnities it brings! I feel so blessed to be able to wake up each day and enjoy all that my Father in Heaven has given me! I love to be outdoors and see the beauty of the world around me. With that said my hobbies surround around being outside. I love to fish, hunt, camp, mountain bike, and be around the good ole' camp fire with family and friends. I also really enjoy getting together with friends and family and playing games and sports! But most importantly is that I yearn to be with my family and friends at church! The love I feel when I am there with those I care about most is undescribeable and brings me the most happiness in my life! I strive to be apart of these things that bring me the most happiness!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon for multiple reasons! I love the people in the church, and the kindness/charity that is there! I love the opportunnity I have each week to meet with them at church and discuss the gospel of Jesus Christ. Whenever I am at church I feel a peace that brings warmth and love into my soul and heart. In a weary world of confusion and strife I know that I can always rely on the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints to bring rest and upliftment among such things. But if I were to give you the main reason why I am a Mormon it would revolve around one word. A word that I hold very dear and close to me. Family. I love my family with all my heart and it brings me such profound joy to know that families can be together forever! The Gospel of Christ which is taught at this church is true, and reassures me that I can be with my family for ALL ETERNITY! I know this to be true because of how I feel when I learn and discuss such things at church. The feelings of happiness and the knowledge I gain from being a Mormon brings me the most happiness in my life. I know without a doubt that God has provided us with families for a reason and that the love shared between members of a family is priceless. I also know that these families that God has blessed us with are not superficial and temporary but rather timeless and without end. So why am I Mormon? I am Mormon because I know the things I felt and the knowledge I have gained has sealed within me a lasting happiness and peace that is undeniable and in no way can be nothing other than the truth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by uplifting and giving service to others. I am currently a missionary in the church. Everyday I give all my time and effort to helping others come to the gospel which has brought me so much happiness in my life. I have the desire for others to come and to know for themselves the happiness that the gospel can bring to them. I do my best to live my life in accordance to how Jesus Christ lived his so many years ago on this Earth. I know I am not perfect but I know more importantly that as I strive to live my life like my Savior did, he will help me through life's difficulties and lead me to an everlasting peace and happiness.
