Hi I'm Randy

I grew up in Simi Valley California. I like to hike, camp, ride four wheelers, boat, and build things. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to a beautiful girl. I have one son. I just finished my bachelors degree and now I am working on my pre-requisites so I can apply to PA school. I like to do stuff outdoors. Our family lived for a year off the grid. We didn't have power or water. We had to haul water and had solar and wind power that we ran off. It was a challenge, but it was fun to do. With a change in job we had to move. Someday we hope to have another house that is off the grid with solar and wind power.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Mormon family. My parents are Mormon and raised me in the Mormon faith. When I got older and had to start thinking about going on a mission for the church I had to decide for myself if I believed in the Mormon church or not. Through studying the teachings of the church, reading the Book of Mormon, and praying to know if it was true, I found for myself that the Mormon church and teachings were true and brought me closer to Jesus Christ. I then served a mission in Baltimore, Maryland. On my mission I spent two years serving and teaching the people of Maryland. It was a great experience and strengthened my faith in Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be a good example. I do my best to live my faith every day. I make sure my words and actions are appropriate and uplifting. I keep a smile on my face and try to cheer up and uplift the people around me. I go to church every Sunday and participate in worship services. For the last five years I have served in the primary(where the kids go to learn). I have taught kids from age 5 to 12. I really enjoy working with the kids. They are so pure and eager to learn. By teaching the children I get reminded of the basic principles of the gospel.
