Hi I'm Rich

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a recently remarried, father of 3 girls. I have relocated to Moses Lake because of a job opportunity. I really like sports and participate in basketball, softball and golf.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Morman because of the difference the gospel makes in my life. I am so grateful to know that if I live worthily I can be with my family forever. That assurance brings peace and focus into my life. I strive everyday to live the gospel to its fullest and to be the best husband and father I can be.

How I live my faith

I am grateful for the opportunity I have to be a priesthood instructor. The weekly lessons have helped me to develop a much fuller understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Rich
In "The Family: A proclamation to the World" many Mormon beliefs about families are outlined. One of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' core beliefs is that family relatioships can last forever--not just for life. Just as some of life's sweetest joys can come through family associations, the loss of a beloved family member can be a source of our deepest sorrows. But death does not need to be the end of our relationships with cherished loved ones. The Lord revealed to the Prophet Joseph Smith that the "same sociality which exists among us here will exist amoung us there [in eternity], onl it will be coupled with eternal glory" (Doctrine and Covenants 130:2) Family members who accept the Atonement of Jesus Christ and follow His example an be together forever through sacred ordinances performed in God's Holy temples. Jesus gave to Peter the power to have things sealed in heaven (Mathew 16:19). This same sealing power was restored to Joseph Smith. Mormon's believe that they can be "sealed" or bound together through His power enabling them to live together in eternity. Show more Show less
