Hi I'm Richie

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and father. I have a beautiful one-year-old daughter. I just graduated this past May with a Masters of Accounting. I am now a financial auditor with a prominent big four accounting firm. I love to be active. My favorite hobby is playing basketball whenever I can. I also love to go boating and camping. I am trying to get better at mountain biking as well.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have come to know, steadily over the course of my life, that this is the only true, restored church of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon is one of the greatest influences in my life. That Book contains the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Namely, that if we have faith in Jesus Christ, repent of our sins, get baptized by the power of the restored priesthood, and receive the gift of the Holy Ghost by the laying on of hands by a holder of that same priesthood, we can return to live with our Heavenly Father for the eternities after this life. This message is a message of hope that is unparalleled in any other book of scripture. I am a Mormon because I believe in the power of Jesus Christ's atonement, which isn't fully understood in other churches. Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God, nothing more and nothing less. I am thankful for his work in restoring the true church of Jesus Christ in these, the latter days.

How I live my faith

I have a wonderful opportunity to serve in my local ward. I am a teacher for the group of men that range in age from 22 to mid-30's in my ward. I teach men that are roughly my same age to gospel principles. This is a great assignment in that I get to discuss the basic principles of the gospel with other men who have studied this same gospel and provide unique insights I had not previously considered.
